Giant concrete girders were lifted in to position on the new Kinsellas Road East bridge last week in a milestone for the $1.147 billion Moreton Bay Rail Link.
The steel-lined and concrete-filled girders are a key visible part of the first major construction project for the new rail link.
Photographer Chris Higgins and on-site engineer Emma Jackson covered the arrival and installation of the giant girders.
When completed, the bridge will provide one lane in each direction, cycle lanes, a pedestrian footpath, a new roundabout at the intersection with Mango Hill Boulevard and a new road connection at Kinsellas Road East with Anzac Avenue.
The bridge is being built to the east of the existing road and will one day connect with the North South Urban Arterial, a proposed link between Bald Hills to Mango Hill.
It is expected to be completed mid year with construction of the rail corridor, including the tracks, structures and six new stations, to start in the second half on 2013.
The new rail link is expected to be completed in late 2016.
