Road Reconstruction

In this project the intersection at Kennedy Highway and McKell Road was upgraded and widened. This project included road excavation and reconstruction in stages with kerb and channel, concrete V drains and bitumen seal. Traffic management was a key factor in this project due to the undulating terrain and fog which limited visibility. The contract project duration was 60 days, due to the date of award and the festive season works were postponed by RCG to the New Year and the project was completed within 10 working days.
