The project consisted of the construction of 1498 AASHTO beam using precast moulds in a purpose built casting yard. The yard required up to 12 moulds. The casting yard was based in a disused rail maintenance facility and has been laid out as a combined batching plant casting area and storage area.
ClearTech designed the casting yard for Leighton Construction Asia. The main challenges in this project related to the ground conditions at the casting yard and flooding in the area.
ClearTech designed the Gantry Rail as a continuous elastic beam, developing up ground improvement solution that reduced deflections on the beam, over the period of the project to +/- 5mm.
