2022 brought high levels of rain and flooding to NSW. Various Councils in the South Western Slopes region of New South Wales in partnership with Traffic NSW coordinated safety measures to coordinate traffic through less affected passable road networks. Our teams worked around the clock to respond immediately to new water levels that inhibited major transport routes. Maintaining a workable way through ensured supplies and deliveries, and the public was able to make their way to their destinations.
Flooded Roads in South Western Slopes NSW
Cairns Western Arterial Road, Redlynch Connector Road to Captain Cook Highway, duplication
This DTMR project contracted to Albem Constructions was a $300 million project to duplicate the Cairns Western Arterial Road between Redlynch Connector Road and Captain Cook Highway. We provided Traffic Management to support the following works. Upgrade of the section of the Cairns Western Arterial Road (CWAR) between Redlynch Connector Road and Captain Cook Highway to a 4-lane dual carriageway. Duplication of the rail overpass at Redlynch. Duplication of the Kamerunga Bridge over the Barron River.
Smithfield Bypass Project Stage 1
East Coast Traffic Control assigned extensive Traffic Management services to this major project. Contracted by DTMR to Highways Constructions/ALBEM Constructions joint venture, this $350 million project included the construction of a new 3.8-kilometre two-lane, bi-directional road bypassing to the east of the Captain Cook Highway (CCH) between the existing Yorkey’s Knob Roundabout in the south (to be upgraded to a 4-way intersection) and the McGregor Road Roundabout in the north (to be Grade Separated).
Bruce Highway Cooroy to Curra Section D
This major highway project for the Department of Transport and Main Roads has been in operation since the end of 2020 and involved large teams across multiple locations and constantly changing surroundings and evolving risks and hazards to be evaluated and controlled. Bielby-BMD joint venture contracted for this section of works for
Once complete, there will be 42 bridges at 23 locations along the Gympie Bypass and more than 6 million cubic metres of earth will be moved from cuts to fill areas. This raises the new section of the highway to a level that will increase the flood immunity to withstand a one-in-100-year flood event.
Scenic Highway Pipeline Works
The Livingstone Shire Council water pipeline project in Yeppoon, Taranganba required ongoing traffic management to address the changing needs at each section of the project over a long period of time which required flexibility and experience to respond to various needs the project presented throughout.
Toolooa Street Gladstone Road Rehabilitation Works
Supporting Loftus Contracting for approx. six months, we supported works for Gladstone Regional Council, and supported by State Government assistance, that involved asphalt seal works, requiring excavation and new road layers being constructed before the asphalting. Construction also included a new sewer rising main to replace ageing infrastructure.
Capricorn Highway & Bruce Highway Reseal Program
Between Rockhampton and Emerald our Central Queensland teams provided traffic control and traffic planning services for six months from the end of 2022 into early 2023, to support Colas Qld who successfully delivered these works on budget, safely and on time for the Queensland Department
RPQ works have been mostly west of Townsville, up to Normanton out to Mount Isa over the last couple of months
We cover larger territories with Sealing packages in various sections such as Karumba Point to Walkers Creek Normanton, Burke & Wills 4 Ways Roadhouse, Gregory to Camooweal, Camooweal to Mt Isa, Mt Isa to Cloncurry and of course Cloncurry to Duchess Rd.
We have started looking at more works with RPQ in 2020 with a strong reference point based on all these previous and on-going jobs.
Cardno works in Mackay
We have worked with Cardno throughout central and northern Queensland for quite some time now. These works are usually “Test Pits” prior to the major works being awarded, which gives the client a good idea of our safety standards and the turnaround time. This in turn gives us an insight to what projects are coming up and prepares us to deliver the best possible outcome.
The feedback has always been positive, and we continue to nurture the relationship we have with Cardno.
Our Ventia Works
Our work with Ventia has been 90% reactive. We work with Ventia throughout all Depots in Queensland with their Powerline Works.
Safety is always the number one priority, even on our smaller jobs. We share a common goal of keeping pedestrians and other road users safe around the works.
