Following the 2011 Toowoomba floods, the Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) sought to rebuild infrastructure across the region as part of the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) program. Once such piece of infrastructure was the Jellicoe Street Bridge which had been engulfed by the wall of water which rushed through the town’s CBD and West Creek catchment system. As a local contractor, the FKG Group was engaged for the complete reconstruction of the bridge which included all piling (including pitching) and erection of deck units adjacent to several power lines which increased the difficulty of the task and required the implementation of a detailed plan to ensure the safety of all involved.
