This Residential Estate Development which is situated off Station Street at Wellington Point, required as part of the development approval, 100,00m3 of earthworks, the widening and overlay of the existing intersection of Station Street and Fernbourne Road. The existing Station Street formation was widened over three metres. To achieve this widening a concrete retaining wall almost six metres high was required to eliminate encroachment of the widened road into adjacent private property. The road works in Station Street included an upgrade of the local stormwater drainage network.
The connection of the watermain to supply the development with potable water involved the following:
- Tunnel bore under Cleveland Railway line
- Watermain construction through wetland area, tunnel bore across Duncan Street and along road reserve area
- Live works connection in Starkey Street
A project specific license agreement had to be entered and executed by RDS for the watermain works under the rail line as well as an extension to a major drainage culvert that runs under the track formation. The project was completed on time and under budget, while variations occurred they were offset by the inbuilt contingencies of the contract.
