The Australian road network in many locations has been forged from traditional logging tracks through the Great Dividing Range in steep and unstable terrain. This historic and often uncontrolled cut to fill approach has created many areas, particularly on the east coast of Australia which are prone to landslip failures and run-off damage caused by poor drainage.
This feature of our coastal and inland road network provides a regular requirement for embankment & cutting stabilisation. Earthtec offers a variety of techniques for road remediation works including “Turnkey” design & construct solutions which have proven extremely popular with the various state road authorities, local councils, Recently NDRRA funded works have formed a large portion of this activity and include major embankment stabilisation and road remediation works to the Kennedy Highway & Bloomfield Road in Far North Queensland.
Similarly, the inland road network is plagued with flood damage particularly at river crossings and bridges where increased run-off and flood events often cause major damage to road related infrastructure such as bridges, culverts, causeways and levees. Earthtec has completed a number of culvert remediation works, causeways and bridge projects.
