Olympic Drive Bridge replacement

Posted: Wednesday 15 January 2014Bridge Replacement

Over the Christmas period Sydney Trains staff were out in force undertaking a major bridge renewal at Olympic Drive, Lidcombe.

The bridge was nearing the end of its life cycle and was replaced with a new reinforced concrete bridge. This increased the road clearance height to 5.3 meters and reduced environmental concerns about the risk of bridge damage and road congestion.

The work was completed in just five days and the lines were reopened in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations in Sydney.
