Airport - Mining - Other

This project required total rehabilitation/reconstruction of the Kowanyama airport. Bulk and detailed earthworks were required to reconstruct drainage. Installation of pipes and headwalls to outfalls of drainage for perimeter access road and apron extension added through RAP funding and Taxi way rehabilitation. The works consisted of profiling existing failures, stabilising of in-situ material and replacement of unbound material where required, drainage, extensions.

Works were carried out in a remote and environmentally sensitive area on Cape York Peninsula. Conditions were at times extreme and strict client consultation and communication was necessary to achieve the optimum outcome.
