The $1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing is a 41km heavy vehicle route designed to increase freight efficiency and significantly improve driver safety and community amenity by removing heavy vehicles from Toowoomba’s CBD.

When finished, the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing will connect the Warrego Highway at Helidon Spa in the east to the Gore Highway at Athol in the west via Charlton.



The TSRC project made smooth and constant progress at the main viaduct (Bridge 9) with the help of our RKS – Rail Climbing Systems and SMK Single Sided System that has been adapted and inverted to support the typical headstocks. 6 sets of RKS Climbing systems were used to form the Pier, reaching heights of just over 40m. 3 sets of inverted SMK systems were used to form and support the 1000kN typical headstocks, with over 6m cantilever from the pier face. Meeting the new Formwork Code of Practice, our Stretcher Stair Towers, situated at each pier and headstock, ensured safe and reliable evacuations to all personnel.

The versatile MK system was used to form large access platforms (2.6m wide) around the headstock, so that works could continue safely and efficiently underneath the Super Ts.

At peak intervals, we supplied up to 20 scaffolders, providing labour support to the TSRC project.


The project created a safer, faster and more efficient route for connecting freight to major ports and markets.
