Location Isle of Capri, Gold Coast, QLD
In 2020, Gold Coast City Council sought to improve traffic flow through the Isle of Capri as it serves as the city’s major east-west traffic connector. The current 18,000 cars that crossed the Isle of Capri bridge daily is expected to increase to 27,000 by 2027. As such, Gold Coast City Council were eager to prevent future traffic congestion.
The project required the replacement of the current 60-year-old bridge to a new 4-lane bridge over Nerang river, also allowing for a major stormwater capacity upgrade and improvements to parklands, intersections and road and cycle ways.
To complete this project, Gold Coast City Council required nine large, custom-engineered precast stormwater pits, along with a series of other road drainage items. Naturally, Civilmart stepped forward as the perfect team for the job.
Over the past 5 months Civilmart designed, engineered and supplied the nine large stormwater pits to the Gold Coast City Council project. Using our multisite footprint as an advantage, pits were manufactured across Corbould Park, Larapinta and Stapylton branches to meet lead-time requirements, allowing us to deliver the products well ahead of schedule to meet the requirements onsite.
Civilmart were able to provide tailored engineered solutions for the best-cost savings for our client, minimizing structure weights for cranes onsite and safety, all backed by a certified RPEQ. Our experience in producing high-quality products and our ability to deliver on time made sure Gold Coast City Council’s expectations were not only met, but exceeded.
