Project Scope

  • Crack injection to the abutments and crosshead
  • CFRP strengthening to the abutments and crosshead using a combination of fabric and laminate, rods and anti-carbonation coating to all of the strengthened elements


  • Delayed deliveries due to project supplies needing to be sought from metro areas
  • A regular supplier was unable to provide critical materials as committed so Pensar needed to find an alternative local supplier
  • Required planning to ensure that all resources were available for the completion of the project


  • Upon commencement of the project, the scope was extended and completed within the original program
  • The project was successfully completed by a small crew as additional labour was unavailable due to Covid-19 travel restrictions
  • The successful completion of this project led to Pensar winning future work with the Murray Shire Council
