Following the severe flooding events of early 2011, a need was identified to undertake extensive reconstruction and rehabilitation works on the Carnarvon Highway, near Roma. The project was funded by the Australian Government’s Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) and delivered through the Department of Transport and Main Roads’ Transport Network Reconstruction Project (TNRP).
The FKG Group was engaged to undertake full-width 8m reconstruction of the highway in the heaviest flood damaged areas and shoulder stabilisation in the less-affected portions. The overall project consisted of two separate contracts, one covering the highway rehabilitation works from Roma to Blyth Creek, and the other incorporating works between Blyth Creek and Surat.
The Carnarvon Highway supports large amounts of freight and tourist movements each year and the FKG Group was responsible for managing the ongoing safety and efficiency of all vehicle movement along the road during the project. The adoption of an extensive Traffic Management Plan ensured that the safety of motorists and our project team remained a constant priority.
