BGER was commissioned to conduct a detailed waterways analysis of 12 rail bridges as part of BHPBIO’s RGP5 rail upgrade between Newman and Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The investigation included detailed hydrological and hydraulic modelling for the 12 bridge catchments to determine flood loading conditions for the structural design of each bridge. Detailed scour analysis was carried out incorporating geotechnical input.
