NDRRA Projects

In this project damaged sections of sealed pavement across the Dimbulah area were milled out utilising a profiler at various depths to a maximum of 300mm dependant on existing.   These sections were replaced with 2.1 gravel and fully sealed with a two coat chip seal. Drainage structures that were built up of sediment and debris were cleared utilising a combination of jet rodder and vacuum truck.  The full project scope consisted of but was not limited to the following:

  • Identification of services and liaison with service providers;
  • Traffic management;
  • Environmental management;
  • Grading of longitudinal drainage;
  • Pavement excavation;
  • Treating subgrade;
  • Supply of pavement material;
  • Construction of new pavement;
  • Bitumen surfacing to new pavement;
  • Replacing road edge guide posts; and
  • Reinstating line marking.



In this project damaged sections of sealed pavement across the Mareeba area were milled out utilising a profiler at various depths to a maximum of 300mm dependant on existing.   The greater portion of these sections were replaced with 2.1 gravel and fully sealed with a two coat chip seal and other sections were replaced with asphalt. Drainage structures that were built up with sediment and debris were cleared utilising a combination of jet rodder and vacuum truck.  The full project scope consisted of but was not limited to the following;

  • Identification of services and liaison with service providers;
  • Traffic management;
  • Environmental management;
  • Grading of longitudinal drainage;
  • Pavement excavation;

This project consisted of works through the Daintree World Heritage Area to restore sections of failed pavement after 2 cyclones and monsoonal rain saturated the area. Restoration of unsealed surfaces and re-sheeting works were required with a layer of 150mm of gravel on the majority of the project.

The project was situated over an area of approximately 75km. Further variations to the contract resulted in extending the bitumen seal on Rykers Rd a further 1.5km

Works were being carried out to certain constraints with environment and cultural protection being major factors, throughout the project over 3000 sandbags and 150 metres of silt fencing were installed. Coordinating the delivery of approximately 50,000 tonnes of gravel to the area, Robinson Civil Group had to work closely with Council and the community to ensure the continuation of gravel supply and the safety of road users. Traffic management was a major factor with the roads being heavily utilised by tourists during construction.

Roads completed include:

  • Banabilla Road
  • Bloomfield Road
  • Buchanan Creek Road
  • Camelot Close
  • Cape Kimberley Road
  • Cape Tribulation Road
  • Carbeen Road
  • Cedar Road
  • Evergreen Road
  • Forest Creek Road
  • Ironbark Road
  • Maple Road
  • Old Forest Creek Road
  • Pandanus Road
  • Quandong Road
  • Red Gum Road
  • Roland Road
  • Rykers Road
  • Spurwood Road
  • Thornton Park Drive
  • Turpentime Road
  • White Beech Road




This project was to rehabilitate and reconstruct damaged road and drainage infrastructure to Bloomfield Falls Road and Horsecrossing Road after the 2014 flood swept through the area.

Bloomfield Road

This project consisted of construction work of eight sites. Works consisted of earthworks, rock mattress, rock gabion, pavement, stormwater drainage, road signage, guide posts, line marking and associated works.

Horsecrossing Road

The project consisted of construction work of two major defect sites. Works consisted of gravel resheet, earthworks, drainage, rock protection, pavement, guide posts, signage and associated works. The major defects includes new road alignment which was constructed to the east of the existing road alignment and joined smoothly at each end with the existing road.

Damaged sections of pavement were milled out and replaced with 2.1 gravel on a number of sealed roads in the Ravenshoe area. The works were then fully sealed with a two coat chip seal. Some medium formation grading was applied to areas of gravel roads.
