Reconstruction of 800m of an existing suspended deck quay, constructed in the 1950s, over three phases within a live port environment.
Works included the demolition of the existing post-tensioned concrete deck structure, and construction of a new suspended deck structure in its place.
The existing deck was used as a temporary works platform with piling through holes cut in the deck.
Works involved installation of over 700 tubular steel piles, up to 1200mm diameter, with a sheet piled cut-off wall to the toe of the existing revetment.
The deck consisted of a series of precast beams and deck slabs which were overlain / infilled with insitu concrete and significant dredging works.
Crane rails, panzer belts, fenders and general quayside furniture were also incorporated.
“It has been particularly pleasing to note the high level of cooperation and flexibility between the McLaughlin & Harvey and PDT teams at a site level which has been a major contributor to a very successful project.”Mark Pearson, Project Director PD Ports
