The FKG Group completed the Gore Highway (Toowoomba to Millmerran) project as part of the Queensland Government’s TNRP Flood Restoration Program.
To complete the project, more than 455,000m² of foam bitumen stabilisation, 7,490,000 litres of bitumen primary stabilising agent and 7,250 tonnes of lime secondary stabilising agent were utilised. The project also included sections of cement stabilisation, asphalt works, culvert construction and full-depth reconstruction of pavement totalling a combined distance of 45kms.
The project experienced a large amount of traffic flowing through the site due to the Gore Highway’s status as a major freight route between Queensland and New South Wales. The FKG Group undertook extensive engagement with major transport groups and local landowners to maximise awareness of potential delays among regular road users.
