In April 2019 ALLROADS commenced upgrade works on Old Cleveland Road for Brisbane City Council as part of Councils’ Construction and Rehabilitation of Transport and Drainage Infrastructure works panel.
The goal of the project was to reduce traffic congestion by widening a section of the Old Cleveland Road westbound carriageway, from the Northbound Gateway Motorway off-ramp intersection heading East.
Works undertaken included: drainage works, working around PUP’s, upgrading street lighting, resurfacing and widening Old Cleveland Road. Additional scope items requested by BCC during construction included tree removal/trimming and Glider Pole D&C.
Works were constructed under live traffic and involved strategic staging to reduce disruption to the public including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians on this busy arterial road. Therefore, the majority of the works were carried out at night to achieve minimal impact to road users and local residents and avoid peak road user times.
Pavement design provided a challenge in its construction due to the varying crossfall and batter grades and narrow widths. However, ALLROADS detailed program and construction methodology ensured construction works were delivered on time, to specification and within budget.
