One of the major differences with this project, was the ability for Bitu-mill to manage multiple clients simultaneously.
Bitu-mill assisted in reducing copious amounts of risk to the clients by tackling the job wholly rather than individually. This in turn gave Bitu-mill the ability to overcome constructability issues that arose between the multiple jobs in a well-planned manner.
We successfully worked within the vicinity of an existing 600mm City West Water feeder main to complete pavement construction and approximately 50 road crossings. This was well planned by the site team and took a lot of diligence.
Construction of multiple retaining walls, one of which was built behind live traffic on Alfred Road, a 90m Concrete Sleeper retaining wall. With limited access, Bitu-mill had to use alternative methods to excavate and backfill the wall not only to ensure its strength and longevity but with the most important aspect being the safety for all workers and the public.
- Minimum disturbance to residents by ensuring dust control was a primary focus.
- Facing a 19 week road closure to construct the Alfred Road to a trafficable stage, Bitu-mill’s ability to coordinate with local authorities allowed us to succeed in significantly reducing the overall impacts to road users by reducing disturbance and reopening traffic on Alfred Road with no extensions, even with numerous weather delays in between.
- Managing the QA within a narrow timeframe ensured all authorities permitted the works to progress without delay. This was very important considering the tight road closure timeframe
