Karel Avenue Upgrade
Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA) appointed Georgiou to undertake the Design and Construction of the $28m Karel Avenue Upgrade, with WGA the lead Designer for the project.
The project comprises the civil and structural works for the widening of Karel Avenue. The structural design includes the widening of the existing bridge 1482 over Roe Highway, the replacement of the bridge 1595 over the railway and the extension of the pedestrian shared path underpass 9282.
Through the design, the civil and structural design teams worked together to provide several value engineering improvements from tender design including limiting the underpass extension only at the eastern portal, re-use of the existing precast spandrel wall unit and the existing wing wall units and re-use of the existing balustrade.
