During this time, Australian Precast Solutions has serviced a diverse range of major engineering and civil projects, including but not limited to:

Macleay River and Floodplain Bridge

3.2km high-level bridge spanning Macleay River and Frogmore Floodplain is the longest road bridge in Australia. APS manufactured 941 prestressed Super-T girders, each 34m long and 1500mm deep.

Nambucca Heads to Urunga - Pacific Highway Upgrade

22km of four-lanes of dual carriageway, 36 bridges including a five-span twin bridge over the Kalang River. APS supplied a variety of Super-T beams, parapets, box culverts, precast wing walls and pile caps for this project.

APS supplied over 200 Super-T beams, custom-designed prestressed planks and pilecaps for the Wilson and Hastings River sections.

Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway Upgrade

The W2B project involves the duplication of approximately 155 kilometres of road to a four-lane divided road on the Pacific Highway in northern NSW. The W2B project starts about six kilometres north of Woolgoolga (north of Coffs Harbour) and ends about six kilometres south of Ballina. The W2B project provides the missing link to a four-lane divided carriageway between Hexham and the Queensland State border. APS supplied 2237 custom-designed prestressed winged planks, 230 Abutments and 235 headstocks across the entire length of the project.

The Northern Road Stage 2

Stage 2 Upgrade of The Northern Road and Bringelly Road involves both major roads being widened from generally two traffic lanes to become four-lane roads together with kerbside bus lanes, plus a wide central median to allow for future widening to six main traffic lanes. APS supplied 48 parapets and 319 precast retaining wall panels.

The Northern Road Stage 3

Widening two undivided lanes to a four-lane divided road, plus kerbside bus lanes. It generally follows the existing road alignment and includes the reconstruction of the crucial M4 Motorway Interchange with The Northern Road. APS supplied 502 plain and patterned precast noise wall panels.
