Wembley Road bridge demolished

Posted on November 19th, 2018

Last weekend saw another major milestone achieved on Transurban Queensland’s Logan Enhancement Project, with the Wembley Road bridge successfully demolished, to enable ongoing works to upgrade the Logan Motorway/Wembley Road interchange.

Transurban Queensland Group Executive, Sue Johnson, said the existing Wembley Road bridge over the Logan Motorway was removed to make way for the new northbound bridge.

“Wembley Road is a vital link to and from the Logan Motorway, and with about 45,000 cars using this road every day, it cannot keep up with the growth that Logan is facing,” Ms Johnson said.

“This important project will boost capacity through the widening of Wembley Road from two to four lanes between Pagewood Street and Greenfern Drive, including replacing the existing bridge over the motorway with two new wider structures.

“Construction is about 65% completed with more than 1.8 million hours worked and about 700 people working on the project each day,” she said.

Fast facts – about the bridge that was demolished:

  • two span bridge 25m each (50m total length and min clearance of 5.2m)
  • one lane in each direction
  • one shared user path
  • 100m total of concrete bridge barrier and 50m of steel hand rail
  • two concrete abutments and one concrete headstock supported on two concrete columns
  • 12 total concrete girders (six in each bridge span).
