A "wet edge" refers to the process of avoiding obvious join lines between sec- tions of coating. ey also applied a "stripe coat" over welds and other joints. Berry adds that the massive girders—the heaviest weighed 86 tons—were the largest compo- nents that his company has been involved with. Scissor-lift platforms were required to allow the applicators to safely reach the highest areas on the outside and scaffolding for those on the inside. "ese girder sections were huge and comprised 20 individual sections each," says Hawkes. "e Ayliffes Road bridge will be a total length of 390-m long, which is a pretty decent bridge in anyone's terms—especially when you have to move it." e three steel box girder structures for the project were constructed using an inno- vative method whereby the structures were built off-site, transported, and precisely maneuvered into place using self-propelled modular transports (SPMTs). is method of bridge construction is commonplace throughout Europe and the Americas. How- ever, this was the first time SPMTs have been used in Australia by the infrastructure sector to install a fully completed structure. When a coating is properly applied, inspected, and qualified, it should easily provide 25 years or more of protection, although many projects today are even specifying 50 and 100-year life expectancy. New capital investment in some areas may be slowing down, but governments around the country have recently announced plans for large-scale road and rail projects that will provide many opportunities for corro- sion control and prevention companies.
