Swansea Bridge – Control Desk Automation Upgrade

The Swansea Bridge forms a part of the Pacific Highway that crosses the channel which joins the ocean to Lake Macquarie. The bridge is raised to allow boat access to the lake. Due to ongoing equipment reliability and operator issues, CDMS Electrical Engineers was engaged to implement improvements to the bridge to simplify the operation and to combat ongoing traffic incidents and delays. The operator desk layout was simplified, automation interlocking was added and a SCADA system was installed to enable monitoring of operations.
