How to build the perfect bridge: The bloukrans construction

Construction at the Bloukrans Bridge in Sydney’s west has taken a bizarre turn with the construction of an artificial island and a huge crane, prompting concerns about safety and potential safety issues.

The bloukrans bridge, which spans the Yarra River between Melbourne and Brisbane, has been a source of controversy since it was built in the 1990s.

It has become a hotbed of controversy after the NSW Government announced a $50 million replacement was planned, which would replace the bridge and the nearby motorway interchange, but that plan is now in limbo.

The government says the new interchange will be built by 2020.

Construction on the Bloukans bridge has become an issue in NSW and across Australia after it was first proposed in the late 1990s, and a massive crane was constructed to hold the bridge in place.

A large crane was erected on the east side of the bridge to hold it in place and the crane has since been moved.

However, the NSW Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) has now revealed that the crane, which was meant to hold up the bridge for six months, has taken the whole bridge down and has caused the bridge, and parts of it, to collapse.

According to the department, the crane “was not secured correctly and has fallen on the bridge” and is now stuck in a small area on the west side of Sydney’s Bloukes Bridge.

“It is currently in a temporary location on the north side of Blouke Bridge,” the department said in a statement on Thursday.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The department said the crane was removed on Friday, and that the bridge is now being removed and inspected.

The crane was originally scheduled to be used to secure the north-facing side of a temporary bridge, but has now fallen into a small section of the road where the temporary bridge is currently located.

The state government has not yet revealed when the temporary span will be replaced.

A $50m bridge replacement is now under way, but a crane is still standing on the blouks side of his bridge.

It’s been a nightmare of a project.

The new bridge was built with the original design of the Bloulks bridge, in 1988.

A spokesperson for the NSW DIT said the bridge’s collapse had been caused by a malfunction in the crane.

“The crane was not secured properly and has fell on the [Blouk’s] bridge,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

“A total of 24 people have been injured, including three emergency room staff.

The emergency department has also had to take two people to hospital, with one requiring treatment for a cut to the hand.”

According to Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, the State Government’s Department of Transport has confirmed that the new bridge is “in a temporary area on a road where it has previously been”.

The State Government said the new, more modern bridge is expected to be completed in 2021.

Construction of the new bloukans replacement bridge was delayed for nearly two years after a crane fell into a section of road in the area.

A crane that was supposed to hold a bridge on the south side of its Blouks Bridge has fallen into the middle of the bloukes bridge.

The bridge is being dismantled.
