WULKURAKA CONNECTION WORKS RETAINING WALL

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Abergeldie was awarded the contract to construct a 430m long 5m high reinforced concrete retaining wall for Queensland Rail as part of their $4.4billion New Generation Rolling Stock Project.

The contract required excavation and retention of an earth batter to provide additional access for the new railway bypass line into the facility. One major risk of the project was a high pressure gas main buried within the batter which was at risk of collapse during excavation. Abergeldie safely installed bored piers to support the gas main prior to constructing the wall.
