Bridges and crossings Olifantspruit crossing (Nylstroom area Limpopo)
Scope of work
Olifantspruit crossing was constructed for the need of crossing the river and in the same time to form a small dam. The owners of the farm wanted to build a house on the other side of the river so the crossing was to be constructed in such a way that heavy vehicles would be able to cross the river.
Construction was started in the dry season when the water flow was in a manageable way. Because of the quantity of water that flows in this river in the rainy season the plan was to construct a crossing that the water would be able to run over the entire bridge without being damaged.
The size of the bridge is 10 meter x 5 meter.
