Pacific Motorway Upgrade, Mudgeeraba to Varsity Lakes Early Works
CMC was awarded the Pacific Motorway Upgrade, Mudgeeraba to Varsity Lakes Early Works project in July 2017 by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
The project involves the removal and reconstruction of noise fencing, construction of an access track, RCBC culvert crossing, PUP relocations (services included but not limited to telecommunications and sewer), supply of ITS equipment (excluding VMS boards), installation of ITS including VMS, CCTV’s and associated civil works, and relocation of existing of CCTV infrastructure.
The project commenced in August 2017 with an expected completion date of December 2017, weather permitting.
HIGHLIGHTS AND OUTCOMES:
CMC is proud to continue its close working relationship with TMR (Gold Coast Region) delivering critical infrastructure improvements to the Pacific Motorway in the Mudgeeraba area.
CMC worked closely with the Administrator, Principal and Designer to develop a revised design solution for the reinforced rock access track through the swampy marshland area. The benefit of the solution included finding the local supplier of rock fills meeting the design intent and use of other grades of the geogrids as an alternative to the design thus reducing the lead time of the geogrids.
CMC also proposed and successfully implemented boring for the communication and sewer conduits under Link Way in lieu of trenching thus reducing traffic interactions.
