Northbourne Avenue Rehabilitation Stage 2 & 3
Stage 2 of the Northbourne Avenue Rehabilitation involved renewing and upgrading the three 800m northbound lanes along Northbourne Avenue. Stage 3 of the project involved the mill and re-sheet of the three 1,300m southbound lanes between Antill Street and Wakefield Avenue.
Wodens used Reconophalt on the project which utilises recycled waste products, which in turn lowers greenhouse gas emissions by reducing waste products in the environment. The team also used foam bitumen stabilisation, which is a new technology that involves recycling the existing pavement to re-use in the foamed asphalt mix. With innovative practices and detailed traffic management, the team delivered an outstanding project.

The rich Aboriginal culture and history was made an integral part of the learning experience with nature play, yarning circles and digging pits featured in the outdoor areas. The Joss Construction team showed exceptional commitment to sustainability by diverting 98.53% of waste from going to landfill.
