The 2km long Sarina Range crossing section of the Marlborough-Sarina Road was devastated by landslides from heavy rainfall during Cyclone Debbie in April 2017. EDG was engaged by TMR to provide remedial works designs for 25 affected sites on the road.
We worked with TMR to develop appropriate design standards for the reconstruction works that provided a value for money solution and met the requirements of natural disaster recovery funding. Specific designs were developed and documented for the project, and were constructed by Roadtek.
EDG was involved throughout construction, on site as required to verify ground conditions and make adjustments to the design where required. EDG won Consult Australia’s Small Business Innovation Award for the approach taken to developing design criteria for the project.
