KIRKS BRIDGE, INGHAM

MAL Engineers undertook the design and documentation of the new Kirks Bridge.

Kirks Bridge is located on Liborios Road, Upper Stone. The replacement bridge is 39m long and increased the trafficable width from 4.42m to 6.8m, and the height by 1m to provide greater flood immunity for the community.

The replacement bridge was designed as an InQuik Bridging System, with insitu concrete piers and abutments. The replacement bridge was positioned just upstream of the existing bridge to ensure traffic flow was not impacted during the construction.
