Bridge beams for Molototsi River crossing

We were extensively involved in the construction of two new bridges over the Molototsi River in the Mopani District on behalf of the Roads Agency of Limpopo.

Our proposed pre-stressed I 8 precast beams were a more cost-effective method of constructing the structure and Nyeleti Consulting, the consulting engineer, incorporated our suggestion into their design.

We also proposed an alternative side closure to accelerate construction, while providing a more aesthetically-appealing end product.

Moreover, CoreSlab supplied 1703mm x 50mm thick pre-cast planks to form the permanent shutters prior to casting the bridge deck. The planks replaced conventional asbestos boards used in this type of construction.

Axton Matrix was the main contractor on this project.
