Fremantle Rail Bridge Protection - Underwater Rock Mound {0817 01}

TAMS working on the construction of an underwater rock mound to provide protection to the Fremantle rail bridge. The works include the installation of 14,500 tones of limestone and armour rock to form an underwater rock mound, designed to prevent vessels colliding with the bridge.

 

This photo captures the dredge, Total Support and its mounted Hitachi EX1100 excavator in action placing rocks into the mound. I was quite intrigued by this work as there was no obvious way the operator could be seeing how the rock placement was going.
