Port Drive Upgrade receives an 'Excellent' Design IS Rating

Port of Brisbane, Arup & Seymour Whyte's Port Drive Upgrade collaboration project received an 'Excellent' Design IS Rating. They were presented with the certificate on Thursday 8th February.

Located at the mouth of the Brisbane River, the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) is Queensland’s largest multi-cargo port. In order to meet the growing needs of customers and industry, PBPL is delivering a $110m upgrade to Port Drive and the local road network, delivering safer and more efficient roads. 

They were congratulated on their stakeholder engagement, decision making processes, climate change adaptation and materials reductions. They were also awarded multiple innovations, including 2 Australian-firsts – the Quickcell Super Girder, a new type of prestressed concrete bridge girder which enables greater bridge spans; and the use of EME2 high modulus asphalt, which enables reduced asphalt thickness.
