Darling Harbour Western Distributor

Project Details

Eptec’s Darling Harbour Project was completed on one of Western Distributor roadway bridges (B6794) that spans across the Darling Harbour precinct south of Cockle Bay, west of the Sydney CBD.

Eptec was contracted by Ventia Boral Amey JV to rectify the widespread blistering of the existing coating system, corrosion of the steel road girders and bridge bearings. The project commenced in April 2020 and was completed in December 2020.

This project required special setup and scaffolding containment and equipment. It was undertaken during day and night for the duration of works. It was located in a high profile, heavy pedestrian foot traffic area. Environmental management, public relations and operating hours were highly sensitive in this location.

The project was completed on time in a safe manner to the full satisfaction of all stakeholders.
