Researchers from the University of Queensland School of Civil Engineering have made an engineering breakthrough that can reduce major urban bridgeworks projects from months or even years to just three days.

It has the potential to be revolutionary not only in design but also in costs and time.

Its applications are widespread as explained here by Antony Funnell from the ABC’s Future Tense program.

It starts at the 21:50 mark of the 30 minute program.
