As part of the Moreton Bay Rail Link Project, ALLROADS were contracted by CPB to undertake the construction of a new 1,800m long Energex access track to negate the existing access issues due to ground conditions.
The access track itself was constructed using a combination of overlay as well as an inlay rock-filled platform. Additional works included earthworks, clearing and grubbing, the management of acid sulphate soils, extensive erosion and sediment control, dewatering and installation (removal and re-install) of 750dia and 900dia RCP's,
The Lot 9 works included the development of an existing wet land to prevent high tides from washing into a manmade lake and to provide better access for Energex service vehicles to their assets. Overall, the development included clearing, bulk earthworks, landscaping, drainage and works within a nature reserve, flood zone and around water.
Additional works were also awarded during the contract, with ALLROADS undertaking the construction of the Kippa-Ring Station Car Park.
Environmental considerations were a high priority on this project as the site was located within proximity to mangrove marshland and subject to tidal flow. Water Barriers were used in place of conventional bunds, to reduce the potential for sediment entering a live creek. The use of these bunds has been complimented as innovative by the relevant stakeholders, CPB and DTMR.
A detailed, site-specific Traffic Management Plan and traffic guidance schemes were developed to achieve an MUTCD Compliant project. Control measure included lane and shoulder closures to reduce risk to health and safety to both persons working on the project and members of the general public.
To ensure that maintenance and operational needs of the Energex Easement (a stable access track platform) were met, ALLROADS adhered to a comprehensive and meticulous HSEQ system, coupled with the careful management and co-ordination of resources.
