Key Features

This project involved the construction of various types of flexible pavements ranging from 354mm to 614mm in depth. Over 459 square metres of AC20 200mm thick pavement, 1950 square metres of AC20 260mm pavement and 3500 square metres of AC14 50mm thick wearing course pavement was constructed. Approximately 345 lineal metres of varying types of SO kerb was constructed both using a concrete paver and hand placed in some sections. The project also included the construction of 3 stormwater lines along with the continuous relining of a 32m section of DN450 stormwater pipe using interline Steam Cured CIPP liner.  All works undertaken to Transport for NSW Specifications.

  • 354mm to 614mm deep pavement sections with up to 310mm thick asphalt
  • 345 lineal metres of 5 different SO Kerb profiles
  • 32m relining of DN450Ø stormwater pipe using interline Steam Cured CIPP liner
  • Demolition, removal and complete full depth pavement rebuild of the Saunders Road Intersection over a 4 day Road Closure.
  • Removal and Reconstruction of a 375Ø stormwater line across Pitt Town Road whilst continually maintaining access for road users.
  • Continuous interface and management of resident access within the works area.

 

Challenge

Pitt Town And Saunder Road upgrade required the continual interface of working with live traffic.

Working with live traffic requires detailed traffic management planning and continuous management of the traffic control devices, this ensures both works and road users are always operating in a safe environment.

Due the large numbers of traffic that use this road, we could only shut the intersection down for a short 4 days to complete the works. The thorough and detailed planning developed by the project team meant that this continuous day and night shifts were pulled off and we successfully completed all required works. We completed the rest of the project under other traffic management controls that allowed traffic to flow through the work areas.
