Constructive Thinking Experts
As part of Probuilds’ $130million multifaceted redevelopment of Coorparoo Square, ALLROADS were awarded the contract to undertake external civil works and road upgrades.
Works performed under the contract included; external civil and road works along Old Cleveland Road, Holdsworth Street and Harries Road.
This project posed a number of challenges including working with a water main live connection, working around live services, facilitating underbore of sewer through Brisbane tough rock and managing stakeholders.
These challenges were heightened by the fact that existing Shopping Centre tenants required services such as water and electricity to buildings and over 4000 home owners would have been potentially affected by shut downs to water and live connections
Therefore, extensive community liaison was implemented and to mitigate the effect of any shut downs, staging of the works was completed using live tapping systems and temporary feeds of services were run to remaining affected residents.
Undertaking works at the high volume Old Cleveland Road and Cavendish Road intersection required detailed traffic management planning. As a result of this strategic planning, works in this area were undertaken at night to minimise disturbances to road users and local residents.
In addition, a detailed Project Management Plan, carefully thought out construction methodology and program were implemented, ensuring the safety of the public and workers while maintaining a trafficable site.
