The FKG Group was engaged by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to deliver rehabilitation works to the southbound carriageway of the Pacific Highway, south of the Pacific and Oxley Highway Port Macquarie Interchange, and north of Kew.

Works included pre-pulverisation of existing pavements and in-situ pavement stabilisation, using lime and foamed bitumen in accordance with the nominated project specifications. In addition, work was completed on the existing pavement which was prone to cracking and large fatigue failures.

With extensive experience with in-situ foamed bitumen stabilisation, the FKG Group project team ensured the rehabilitation was delivered to a high quality and was compliant to client and project specifications. The project also successfully trialled the use of an alternate, more environmentally friendly bitumen foaming additive.

During the project, conventional means for pulverisation did not achieve the desired result. This required the project team to implement a construction procedure which included the use of a high-powered, 4.1m wide Surface Miner to pulverise the existing pavement material, which in turn allowed the project to be completed ahead of schedule.
