WGA is heavily involved in the Northern Connector, a $980m road project connecting the South Road Superway to the Northern freight route (the Port River Expressway and the Northern Expressway).

We are providing extensive temporary works design to Lend Lease for ten of the bridges. Our designers have handled a number of challenges including construction sequencing, propping of reinforced earth abutment walls and formwork design for piers and crossheads.

Our geotechnical team has also provided extensive design advice and supervision for the crane pads and lay down areas in very poor reclaimed ground.

WGA’s heavy lift team has advised on new rigging devices to improve safety and have carried out third-party lift reviews for all precast concrete beams as part of Lend Lease’s risk management process.
