Sand River Bridge


Grinaker Construction
Grinaker Construction

Musina, Limpopo Province


Services Provided:

Conceptual and detail design of two replacement spans for the Sand River bridge at Messina, which were washed away during the flooding experienced in Southern Africa at the beginning of 2000. The new spans comprised welded steel plate girders of 1850mm depth with stiffened webs spanning 24,850m. Grinaker were awarded the turnkey contract by Spoornet on the basis of a very demanding 42-day programme, from date of award to reopening of the bridge. With the entire project team working under extreme pressure, the bridge was finally reopened to railway traffic four days ahead of the contractual completion date. Design to BS5400 and SATS Bridge Code.
