The Bribie Island Road Project involved the construction of a new carriageway alongside the existing roadway.
An existing roundabout was converted to a controlled intersection. A second controlled intersection was also constructed.
Significant Earthworks, Drainage and Electrical work formed a significant portion of the contract. Particular attention was paid to pre-planning and methodology for the Earthworks specification as the area for works was susceptible to inundation during wet seasons.

The role of the Community Liaison officer was significant for the entirety of this period of works.

The project was completed in April 2010 which was within the allotted time frame (even with significant additional work at no extension of time requested).
Client and Project Manager were pleased with the way in which this project was run with an overall positive response from the local the community.
