Eton Range Realignment Project

Fulton Hogan is in the process of widening the Peak Downs Highway through Eton Range near Mackay, as part of the Eton Range Realignment Project.

EDG is engaged as Fulton Hogan’s Contractor’s Geotechnical Rep and temporary works designer.  With a full-time presence on site, we are responsible for rock mapping, foundation assessment, review of monitoring data and temporary works design.

Temporary slope support solutions comprising soil nails and shotcrete have been designed to allow excavation to the founding levels for REE walls on very steep slopes in challenging conditions.

Between 2m and 11m in height and up to 100m in length, all walls performed exceptionally in the recent extreme Cyclone Debbie rain event.
