Client Information

RTA of NSW

Scope of Work

Replace an at grade intersection with a multi level interchange of two major arterial roads in Sydney’s north west, including removal and relocation of public utilities, water, gas & communications, liaison with community & road users and construction of a 4 lane overpass & associated roadwork

Significant Achievements

  • A complex project with many innovative design elements was completed ahead of schedule and under budget
  • Successful relocation of all major public utilities while maintaining supply to customers.  In particular, the work required diversion of 1200mm, 900mm and 600mm steel water mains, which was programmed for winter months so that necessary shut downs had minimal effect.
  • Extensive consultation with the Community and the Traffic Management Centre to minimise complaints and keep motorists informed of traffic changes
  • Frequent traffic changes were put in place to accommodate staged construction however there was minimal impact on traffic because of the early notice given to Drivers and the extra attention given to the delineation of traffic routes through the site
  • Daracon’s safety and environmental record for the project was excellent with several independent audits done during the course of the work confirming that our systems are effective and our people have a responsible attitude to managing safety and environmental issues
