Regency Road overpass

Wed., 01 July, 2020

Most of the Regency Road overpass will be assembled ‘off site’ at the Polonia Reserve compound. The overpass will be constructed in two halves: the northbound, and southbound bridge spans. Each will be 82 metres long and together they will weigh up to 1,310 tonnes.

While the bridge spans are being constructed off site, the on and off ramps, and structures that support the bridge spans, will be constructed at the intersection.

Once assembled, the bridge spans will be transported using Self Propelled Module Transporters (SPMTs) and lowered onto the newly constructed concrete piers.
