Principal: Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads
Consultant: Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads
Location: Munruben, Queensland
Contract Value: $10,100,000
Completion Date: February 2009
The contract was for the construction of new service roads alongside the Mt Lindesay Highway in the Munruben-Park Ridge South area. The Mount Lindesay Highway is the key transport corridor between Brisbane and Beaudesert.
The service roads were a precursor to the future four-laning of the Mt Lindesay Highway through this area by closing off all direct access to the highway from private properties and reorganising the flow of traffic between the highway and the local roads network.
In addition to the construction complexities, a single span bridge and seven cell box culvert were to be constructed at Norris and Chambers Creeks. Both areas were identified as environmentally sensitive and therefore involve increased environmental risk depending on the time and/or activity.
The project was completed in February 2009, well within the contractual timeframe and with all quality targets achieved.
A good working relationship was maintained throughout the contract between Neumann Contractors, the Department of Main Roads and the Local community.
