Project Challenges and Outcomes

Multiple options for pavement designs were evaluated including Roller Compacted Concrete, Asphalt and Concrete pavements all utilising local materials and practices. The site is located on particularly difficult subgrade conditions and an effective engineering management strategy was required. ACG undertook extensive value engineering resulting in significant savings to the client without undue exposure to project risks. All of the aggregate used on the project is quarried and crushed on site.
