Caloundra Road Vulnerable Road Users

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.

Lockhart River Bridge Replacement

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.

Bruce Highway Safety Works, Isaac LGA to Alligator Creek

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (Mackay – Whitsunday District) engaged Projex Partners to conduct a road safety review to identify areas of safety concern locations under the Bruce Highway Safety Program. The section of the Bruce Highway investigated extends from Granite Creek, on the electoral boundary between Isaac Regional Council and Rockhampton Regional Council to Alligator Creek, between Mackay and Sarina. This 160km stretch of road passes the towns of St Lawrence, Clairview, Carmila, Ilbilbie, Koumala and Sarina. In total 383 hazardous or potentially hazardous items were identified for improvement including items such as improved signage, improved delineation, improved intersection operation and improved roadsides.

Projex Partners developed a reporting system to assist TMR in its prioritisation of the safety works packages in this section.
