    Dear IPWEA Members,

    This post is in relation to a global university study on load bearing bridge abutments led by Prof. Jorge Zornberg from University of Texas, Austin.  A letter is attached to this post explaining the background and scope of the study.

    I am interested in making contact with council engineers who may have constructed uniaxial geogrid, full-height concrete panel, reinforced soil 'kit' bridge abutments sub-contracted by Waldren Bridges in, predominantly regional NSW and perhaps Victoria, between 1993 and 1999.  I require information on date of construction, location of site (GPS, if possible) and any site construction photos that may be available.  If there was any ongoing survey information regarding lateral wall movements post-construction, that would also be useful.

    I have some basic information on the following sites and if anyone has further information on any of these sites, please make contact with myself at the below contact details:
    1. Gregadoo Bridge, Wagga, NSW
    2. Bulga Rd Bridge, Dingo Ck, Wingham, NSW
    3. Sites in Riverina, NSW
    4. Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, NSW
    5. Deniliquin, NSW
    6. Guyra, New England, NSW
    7. Glen Innes, New England, NSW
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
