Monitoring the activity of precast bridge span transporters for the construction of a 6.6km viaduct

Project’s context & goals



Extension of existing LRT1 light rail line – Manila, Philippines


Bouygues Travaux Publics



Ensure the delivery of precast spans on time to meet the construction schedule.

Client context

As part of the existing Manila LRT1 extension project in the Philippines, Bouygues Travaux Publics wanted to ensure that bridge construction cycles were optimized and the construction schedule aligned with the overall project programme. One of the key elements in the construction of this viaduct was monitoring of the transporters, that were responsible for delivering the precast bridge spans from the prefabrication yard to the launching gantry for construction.

The objectives of the transporter monitoring project :
  • Remotely identify the position of transporters and verify travel status.
  • Manage departure and arrival times to guarantee the pace of production and associated interfaces such as road crossings.
  • Measure average speed and delivery time as they occur to adjust the schedule.

Client testimony

Plant Manager Bouygues Travaux Publics
The results obtained with the help of the My Omniscient solution are very conclusive. The daily use of the tool has allowed us to know in real time the position of the transporters and this information allowed us to react quickly in case of unforeseen circumstances and to deploy technicians to site in a prompt and timely manner.
