PlanRadar to vendor $786M Tasmanian Bridgewater project

Tasmania's Bridgewater bridge project

PlanRadar has been chosen as a software vendor for the $786 million Bridgewater Bridge Project across the Derwent River, the largest transport infrastructure project in Tasmania’s history. 

The new Bridgewater bridge will replace the existing 75 year old lift-span bridge and will span one kilometre. The project is expected to cut travel times for 22,000 people and improve freight routes for transport and logistics.  

As a part of this partnership, PlanRadar will provide capabilities for detailed inspections, managing multiple daily engineering inspections and reporting to assist in the project.

A representative from Burbury Consulting said PlanRadar has been appointed for its data-driven reporting capability. 

“When it came time to choose our project inspection software, we unanimously opted to use PlanRadar for their simplicity of use and incredibly detailed, data-driven reporting capabilities to assist us better in managing on-time reporting, inspections, audits, and checks,” they said. 

PlanRadar has previously been used in civil infrastructure projects in Europe such as the Pelješac Bridge, one of the largest civil projects in Europe. 

Bart Crowther, Regional Lead at PlanRadar said this is the company’s first mega civil infrastructure project in Australia. 

“PlanRadar is thrilled to announce our appointment as a key software vendor for the Tasmanian Bridgewater project,” he said. 

“The opportunity to work on any civil infrastructure project of this scale is outstanding, and the positive impact for the Tasmanian community – for both the 22,000 daily users and improving freight and logistics routes – is exceptionally important to us. We look forward to working alongside the Tasmanian Government and the Burbury Consulting teams and helping to streamline their ongoing daily site inspection processes.”  

The construction of the new bridge commenced in 2022 and is estimated to be completed in 2024.
