Diment Road, Salisbury North - Road Upgrade Stage 3

Client: City of Salisbury
Construction Period:
 6 Weeks

Project Scope: 
Road reconstruction of Diment Road is located between Hawker Road to Helps Road. Including re-kerbing, full road reconstruction of 2 x 4m lane widths, reinstatement of driveways & stormwater installation.

Innovation: By completing the kerbing replacement first, we were able to minimise the potential risk to exposing the subgrade to weather elements.
Problem Solving: Working closely with the client, we were able to modify the design slightly to ensure the intent remained however the construction techniques were maximised i.e. changing driveways form bitumen to concrete to better suit the end user.
Work, Health and Safety: 
By closing the road to through traffic for the duration of the site works, we were able to ensure the works were carried out with reduced risk to worker safety. Working on section of the existing stormwater network, precautions were employed to reduce runoff and sedimentation of pipework.
Local Resources: 
Some local plant and labour were utilised throughout the works. Quarry materials required were sourced from the northern regions.

Ashley Street & Hardy Road, Underdale Intersection Upgrade

Client: City of West Torrens
Construction Period: 4 Weeks
Value: $315,000

Project Scope: As part of the City of West Torrens Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) program, Camco were engaged to construct a roundabout within an existing intersection. LATM modifications were concerned with usage of road space within a local traffic area. It involves the use of physical devices, streetscaping treatments and other measures (including regulations and other non-physical measures) to influence vehicle operation, in order to create safer and more pleasant streets in local areas. The project scope included; road realignment, kerb replacement, concrete infill roundabout, deeplift bitumen and linemarking.

Value added options: An optimal traffic management plan was developed to provide a balance between detours and road closures with the fastest construction time frame.
Problem Solving: Hardy’s Road has a high number of traffic movements daily; detour routes were established early in the projects and minor modification were undertaken for the detours to take the increase traffic load and the realigned bus route during the projects duration.
