Will we see a longer Sea Cliff Bridge in the future?
The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) have recently received cost estimates on extending the current Sea Cliff Bridge located at Coalcliff in the northern Illawarra, NSW, Australia. In addition to the costing estimates, professional consultation has also been provided on various value engineering options, cost estimates of various other design solutions such as rock and block revetments.
The extension will be a cantilever bridge, designed in the same way of its world famous original and will address localised rock slippages, which result in temporary road closures to Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
The RMS appears to be in the consultancy stage at the moment, and with all large infrastructure projects; time, money and government resources are required. I expect at least 1-3 years before any major announcements are made.
I’ll post more information when it comes to hand.
