ALLROADS were awarded the contract to undertake Pavement Rehabilitation works at Cole Street, Booval for the Ipswich City Council.
The pavement rehabilitation contract focused on the resurfacing of a 410m section of road and drainage improvements, and included general features of existing road reconstruction with low complexity graded intersections and channelization works.
Pavement excavation of three pavement types ranging from 400mm below existing, to 50mm below at the intersection to Brisbane Road (DTMR Corridor) were undertaken. The pavement rehabilitation included a significant longitudinal joint for staging of the reconstruction works one side of road and then the other side. In addition, the new pavement consisted of multi-layer gravel placement.
Traffic Management for the worksite needed to facilitate the movement of local traffic, typically <500 vehicles/ day, with traffic controls implemented to ensure continued access and egress for pedestrians, local residents and five commercial shopping centre driveways.
Protection of existing services was integral to successful completion of the works, with numerous existing services requiring location and protection during construction.
ALLROADS worked collaboratively with the asphalting subcontractor APS, to manage the sequencing of works and identify opportunities to expedite the program whilst maximising utilisation of the traffic management staging.
