Naas Road Bridge
Guideline ACT delivered the Naas Road Bridge which is situated over the Gudgenby river and is used by motorists visiting the stunning Namadgi National Park. The project is an important piece of infrastructure delivered as part of the federally funded Bridge Renewal program.
The new bridge spans 32-metres with no piers between abutments, making a clear opening for flood water and debris to pass underneath, unobstructed. The project required a temporary crossing for traffic which was carefully designed, planned and executed, demonstrating Guideline ACT’s management skills while under pressure. The result is a welcomed piece of infrastructure that greatly benefits the local community.
South Jerrabomberra Civil Hydraulic Services
Canberra Contractors, Village Building Co and Spiire worked collaboratively to produce an outstanding result for the South Jerrabomberra Civil Hydraulic Services project. The scope of works involved earthworks, excavation, bedding, backfilling, stormwater drainage, pavement construction, fencing, conduits restoration and landscaping.
The project was complex in nature, with multiple packages of work being intricately intertwined along the access corridor from Thompsitt Drive to the new suburb of South Jerrabomberra. The project also required significant stakeholder engagement, with the involvement of Queanbeyan Palareng City Council, as well as developers and contractors.
The project comprises of several meeting areas, viewing platforms, reflective artworks, interactive spaces, and a recreational path network. The vision for this project was to create a meeting place for the elders of the land and the broader community. The landscape was moulded into incredible aboriginal artwork using deco-granite infill in traditional colours. Another wonderful feature of this project is the 18 habitat trees installed onsite, with each base being reinforced with equal angle brackets and mechanically fixed to the base of the first pour.
Belconnen Arts Centre Foreshore Path Link
Through this project Complex Co completed the missing link in the Lake Ginninderra foreshore path and delivered an overwater bridge and pedestrian path extension. The main feature of the project is the 90-metre curved concrete, steel and FRP deck bridge which hosts two lookout platforms on either side of the inlet. The walkway consists of bored piers with a steel frame superstructure, mesh grating deck, architectural lighting and steel kerbed edging with a shroud to deflect water. The result is an outstanding finished project that now successfully links the Belconnen Arts Centre with the surrounding foreshore precincts.
Northbourne Avenue Rehabilitation Stage 2 & 3
This project involved renewing and upgrading the three 800-metre lanes along Northbourne Avenue and in stage 3 of the project it required milling and re-sheeting of three 1300-metre southbound lanes. To deliver this project it involved laying over 3,500 tonnes of heavy-duty asphalt, extensive planning and significant traffic management on an avenue that accommodates over 42,000 vehicles a day. Wodens showed excellent consideration for their client’s budget and the environment by reusing 4,100 tonnes of existing onsite material.
Through outstanding traffic management and successful recycling of materials, Wodens was able to deliver a roadway with an extended lifespan of 20-years.
Whitlam Estate 2C
The Whitlam Estate 2C project is situated in the newly developed Molonglo area, with works completed by the Wodens team including a subdivision development incorporating one multi block unit and 58 residential blocks, an off site trunk sewer main, construction of new roads and vital infrastructure works.
Wodens successfully navigated numerous complexities that arose during the project including large amounts of uncontrolled fill, deposits of unsuitable material, high strength rock and steep grades. Thanks to careful and skilled planning, the project was completed 12 weeks ahead of schedule. The team exceeded all aspects of quality, work, health & safety and environmental requirements.
