Boom Logistics provided solutions to the $1.5 billion Westlink M7 tollway road infrastructure project in Sydney. The solution was in the form of a fair bit of innovation to handle the huge 76t bridge girders and this finally lead to savings in the project. Boom Logistics transported a majority of the girders from the fabricator based at Teralba, near Newcastle and also lifted them into position.
According to Rod Harmon, Boom Logistics’ CEO, the activity was an overall solution based on innovative thinking and saved their customer a substantial number of hours of crane time. And it was all done in a true spirit of partnering.
The big girders were required for a total of 38 over and under passes as well as 46 bridges on the 40 km tollway. As Boom Logistics had control of the transport with their own prime movers and jinkers, they were able to manage the delivery of the girders to within a few hundred metres from the site and then bring them up to the cranes exactly as required to the time schedule needed.
