The works to upgrade Schofields Road are progressing well with the team achieving its first major milestone with the installation of the super-t girders to the westbound bridge spans in late March.
The Abergeldie/OHL JV team has been constructing Stage 1 of the project being the new westbound carriageway. These works have included house demolition, clearing and grubbing, bulk excavation, soil nailing and shotcrete works, stormwater installation, construction of retaining walls, construction of a new 53m 3-span bridge over Second Ponds Creek, subgrade stabilisation works, placement of select material zone and lean mix concrete pavement base, installation and relocation of utility services along the entire length of the project.
Stage 1 is expected to be complete in July 2013 with the switching of traffic to the newly constructed westbound carriageway. Work to upgrade the existing Schofields Road to form the new eastbound carriageway will follow thereafter.
