Projex Partners were engaged by Cassowary Coast Regional Council to carry out detailed design & RPEQ certification and to produce bill of quantities and safety in design documentation for pedestrian and stormwater drainage upgrades at the intersection of Alice and Fitzgerald Streets, Innisfail. Projex Partners met with Council representatives on site to appreciate the various constraints and opportunities of the project and to discuss potential solutions. Fitzgerald Street is a relatively high-volume thoroughfare for vehicular traffic in Innisfail and with the site being immediately adjacent Innisfail Hospital and the North Johnstone River, there is high pedestrian activity. New footpath extensions and widenings, DDA-compliant kerb ramps, kerb & channel, pedestrian refuges, blister islands, signage and linemarking were provided in the design to facilitate improvement to the safety of pedestrian movements in the area.
Concept, Preliminary and Detailed Designs for new mine entrances for all BMA mine sites in Bowen Basin (12 Coal mines) Each mine entrance included a new Site Access Centre and electronic security access to record all personnel entering or leaving the mine. The works included new access roads, car parks, and access control/monitoring facilities including boom gates, turnstiles, swipe card readers and CCTV.
Miscamble & Queen Street cycleway intersection upgrade located 500m from Roma’s CBD.
New 110m suspended walkway, including 5 stair flights due to the steep site topography (20m level difference). The pathway is required to cater for both pedestrians and cyclists through the use of ramped wheel tracks.
525m new cycleway along Hornibrook Esplanade, Clontarf to create a high-quality separated cycling facility to safely separate pedestrians and high-speed groups of cyclists exiting the Hornibrook Bridge.
Intersection upgrade and traffic signal installation at the Robert Road / Bicentennial Drive intersection in Cairns.
Investigation and detailed design for the vulnerable road user facility upgrade project at the Caloundra Road / West Terrace / Baldwin Street intersection in Caloundra.
Works included traffic signal design, detailed road design and detailed cost estimate to upgrade the pedestrian facilities to allow access for disabled and impaired pedestrians.
Safety Assessment/Review of all Pedestrian Priority (zebra) Crossings across the Noosa Shire.
Structural design and documentation of the Samford Road Ferny Hills Cycle and Pedestrian pathway bridge.
Projex Partners in conjunction with Black & More, undertook the detailed design and documentation of the replacement of an existing degraded bridge in Lockhart River in Cape York with a major culvert structure.
The site is on the only access to the Lockhart River airstrip and management of accessibility to the airstrip was a key consideration in the design.
