Constructed above one of Adelaide’s busiest roads, the South Road Superway is a 4.8 km, multi-lane, non-stop roadway featuring 2.5 km of raised road platforms - one of the longest in Australia and South Australia's first.
48 hour turn around on all compaction control testing and geotechnical advice ensured our client experienced no hold-ups on site - Keeping the project on track.
The low bearing capability of the soft soils in the area had the potential to disrupt construction, as there was a risk the ground would not support the equipment required. Collaboration between FMG & GHD allowed for the design of specialised platforms that would ensure the cranes and piling rig could be used safely – Making it possible for our client to proceed without undue delay costs.
- Integrated Geotechnical and Compaction Control testing allowed for fast expert advice on potential risks and accurate monitoring of the site – Mitigating risk for our client.
- Specialist knowledge of local soil conditions allowed for the design of tailored platforms – Allowing construction to continue safely.
- Fast turn around times kept the project moving forward – Allowing our client to hit construction targets on time!
