  • Clever Scaff System Keeps Tunnel Construction on the Low Down

    Clever Scaff System Keeps Tunnel Construction on the Low Down

    To operate these turbines on this Sydney freeway tunnel project, external factors needed to be considered. Firstly, they are noisy when running, and the surrounding environment needed protecting against noise pollution. And the turbines themselves needed protecting; any abnormal or skewed airflow from naturally-occurring breezes can affect the performance of the units. To control these factors, the contractor commissioned Sydney-based height access and scaffolding supplier SafeSmart Access to come up with a solution.

    Yancoal Gain Safe and Smart Access to Plant Equipment

    Mining company Yancoal operate an open-cut site – Hunter Valley Operations (HVO), approximately 24 kilometres north-west of Singleton, NSW, Australia. On a site like this, machinery and plant equipment are always on the go. To maintain a profitable schedule, this equipment—subjected to sustained periods of operation and harsh environmental factors—runs for nearly the entire working day. Yancoal’s maintenance schedule, as a result, is almost as constant.

That’s why, in anticipation of growing traffic volumes, the road is being upgraded – a widening from four to six lanes and improved cycling, indented bus stops and pedestrian facilities. Safe shotcrete batter and pit access became an issue for productivity. But an Australian portable access provider saved the day.

  • Steps to Smart Safety at Northconnex

    Steps to Smart Safety at Northconnex

    Northconnex is a new tunnel project that upon completion will link the M1 Pacific motorway at Wahroonga with the Hills M2 Motorway at West Pennant Hills, taking the traffic-volume strain from the very busy Pennant Hills Road and Cumberland Highway. At one site, concreting for capping a beam was required. The challenge presented by such large pits is worker access during shotcrete application.

    WestConnex Pedestrian Access Goes Unhindered

    WestConnex is a new motorway project that aims to reduce congestion for vehicles travelling to the CBD and the Port Botany precinct from the northwest and southwest of Sydney. The project encompasses several components – the new M5 motorway tunnel between Beverly Hills and St Peters, the widening of the M4 at the Parramatta end, and the plans to build the Sydney Gateway and the M4-M5 link, making the route somewhat of a semi-ring road.

    One of the biggest elements of a project like this is the minimisation of disruption to commuters during works, whether they are in a motorised vehicle, and pushbike or on foot.
