Cowan F3 Underbridge – Panel Removal


Freyssinet Australia was engaged by Sydney Trains to carry out the removal of 120 precast concrete panels on the Cowan F3 Underbridge. The works could only be undertaken at night, with road closures required on the Pacific Highway.

Although the job was not technical in nature, it did require a level of innovation to design and fabricate a frame/attachment to ensure the safe removal of each panel.


Key Aspects: 
The project was completed two nights earlier than scheduled and within the allocated budget.
There were many high-risk activities associated with the project, such as work at height, work near live power, and working over the road, however, the project was delivered without a single incident.
Feedback received from the client suggested a high level of satisfaction, with particular praise for the planning and site management of the project.
