Fulton Hogan were engaged in 2017 to deliver a complex roadworks scope which includes;
- Traffic sensors located at about 500 meter intervals on the motorway, and on entry and exit ramps, to detect changes in traffic flow in real time;
- Coordinated, quick-changing entry ramp signals to keep traffic flowing on the motorway and make merging easier and safer;
- New lane use management gantries to open and close lanes in response to incidents;
- New traffic signals and electronic signs on approach roads to warn of traffic conditions and travel times.
Works require the relocation, protection and working around live utilities. Being a built-up area the addition of new sub-surface utilities into already congested areas made excavation extremely difficult and required EM locating, Cloud based Trench Reporting, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and detailed Vacuum Excavation.
