Widening of Strand Street: Overhead road sign gantries

Client: ITS Innovative Transport Solutions Consulting Engineer: Mowana Engineers (Pty) Ltd

The widening of Strand Street between the R300 and Tienie Meyer in Kuilsriver, Cape Town necessitated the replacement of two of the existing ground-mounted road signs with overhead road signs to ensure visibility for travelling motorists.  Additionally, two new overhead road sign gantries were required for the off-ramp from the R300 onto Strand Street.  ITS approached Mowana Engineers to assist with the structural analysis and design of the gantries that will support the overhead road signs, including the footings for the two cantilever and 2 portal gantries.  

Mowana Engineers undertook quality control inspections during the manufacturing process and supervised the installation of the gantries.  The quality control inspections and site supervision ensured adherence to the required standards and specifications while meeting the constraints of a tight construction programme.
