The drone inspection of the bridge demonstrates leading-edge business practice by CCB in a number of ways. Using a drone was much safer than having a contractor on ropes visually checking the structure. Measure Australia also provided the Council with a better record of the structure & its issues. The time to complete the inspection was greatly reduced – from 5 days to a half day. The cost was significantly less than that quoted to abseil and inspect the bridge. Measure Australia was able to complete the job for less than 10% of the cost of traditional inspection methods, saving CCB over $70,000. The City of Canterbury Bankstown is a leading Australian local Council. Its use of drones demonstrates best practice operations in facility assessment and management, worksite health & safety and cost reduction.
“It was a great experience working with Measure Australia, from the initial proposal to the site survey & the delivery of HD photos & 4K resolution video files. The specialists from Measure Australia briefed the council project team about what they could achieve with their drones & how they could contribute to the council projects. East Hills Pedestrian Bridge crosses over Georges River with 110m of main span & 25m high steel arch. The asset engineer could review high resolution still images of defect areas & eliminated the need for inspectors to access site, which requires temporary access works & all additional safety measures with high risks & high costs. The survey by Measure Australia saved time, money & resources when compared with the conventional visual inspection approach. It contributed to the project significantly without the cost of quality work.”
