Project Value: $2.5m

 

Client: City of Cockburn

 

Overview

The project required the construction of a dual carriageway running the length of 1.45km from Durnin Avenue to Spearwood Avenue in the City of Cockburn. The carriageway consists of four traffic lanes with a raised central median island separating the opposing flow of traffic. On-road bicycle lanes and off-road shared paths were included to improve pedestrian and cycling safety.

Scope of work included the following:

  • Earthworks, drainage (storm water, pits and basins)

  • Roadworks, footpaths, barriers and bollards

  • Street signage

  • Limestone block retaining walls

  • Fencing

  • Underground power

  • Landscaping

  • On road bicycle lanes and off road shared paths

  • Bus bays and shelters

  • Acceleration lanes

Project Challenges

  • Complex traffic management posed many challenges.

  • Roads and lanes remained open as much as possible during construction to keep traffic flowing, however short closures of access were required.

  • Pedestrian routes would be impacted

  • Construction impacts such as noise and dust were controlled as much as possible.

Managing These Challenges

  • Liaising with Western Power was essential to allow for the program to accommodate this and not to cause any delay to the target date of Practical Completion.

  • Liaising with Brookfield and the Railway Authority was required to install the railway underpass fencing.

  • Pedestrian routes were diverted for safety.
