Worth a staggering $842 million. The South Road Superway Project is South Australia’s most complex engineering road construction project to date. The South Road Superway Project is a stage two of the north-south transport corridor upgrade delivering a 4.8 km non-stop corridor comprising of a 2.8 km elevated roadway connecting the Port River Expressway to Regency Road.
To support the 2.8km elevated roadway above the existing South Road in Wingfield and Regency Park, piles are used to carry the load of the structure deep into the ground. The pile caps formed the solid foundation on which the piers were then built.
Before piling began, the South Road Superway team tested three different pile types at three different locations along the Superway alignment. The ground strata comprised of soft sand layers around 8-10 m deep, with ground water occurring between 2-4 m depth
Value of CFA Piling Work – $30 Million
CFA piling work involved the construction of 740 CFA (Continuous Flight Auger) piles of 1050mm diameter and 27m depth on average. 57 PDA Tests were conducted on test piles.
In this project, Naveesh was involved in: Pre-project briefings, maintaining project documentation – quality, safety, finance, environment, progress, variations, coordination with project manager over equipment and material requirements, supervising workers and making sure works ran smoothly.
