PlanRadar appointed as the key software vendor for the engineering inspections and reports for the AUD 786 million Tasmanian Bridgewater project.
• The project is the largest transport infrastructure project in Tasmania’s history – building a modernised AUD $786 million bridge across the Derwent river
• PlanRadar was unanimously chosen as a key project management software vendor, providing capabilities for detailed inspections and reporting to assist in the project running on-time and on-budget
PlanRadar has announced that they have been formally welcomed as the approved key software vendor for the New Bridgewater Bridge Project in Tasmania, Australia. As a part of this partnership, PlanRadar will be the approved software vendor for managing multiple daily engineering inspections for the next two years.
The mega civil infrastructure project is the building of the largest civil project in Tasmania, an AUD $786 million bridge between Bridgewater and Granton across the Derwent River. The new Bridgewater bridge will be Tasmania’s largest-ever transport infrastructure project.
The new one-kilometre bridge will replace the existing 75-year-old lift-span bridge, providing a new modern crossing of the River Derwent. The new Bridgewater bridge will cut travel times for 22,000 people that use the route each day, and it will also improve freight routes for transport and logistics. Major construction of the new bridge commenced in 2022 and is estimated to be completed in 2024.
