Austeng, along with successful consortia partners Rocla and Deakin University are the successful tenderers in the City of Greater Geelong tender for two 100 year maintenance-free pedestrian bridges in a pioneering procurement for innovation process.

The bridges are being constructed with Geopolymer material and reinforced by fibre reinforcing rods comprising a host of structural and environmental benefits thus ensuring that ‘concrete cancer’ won’t eventuate.

It is intended that once these bridges are installed they will then be rolled out nationally.
