CBCL Limited was awarded the 2007 Nova Scotia Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in Engineering for its design of a project in Israel. The consulting engineers’ winning project is a self-launching bridge erection gantry for the Moriah Bridges project near Jerusalem.
The bridges are part of an expansion of the highway that links Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They span a deep ravine and are on a horizontal curve. The gantry is being used to erect three multi-span precast segmental concrete box girder bridges and has successfully completed two of the three bridges involved. The third is under construction. CBCL worked in association with Tony Gee International.
The award is sponsored by the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia.
