WRA Alliance Wet Weather Upgrade
Location: Western Treatment Plant, Werribee, VIC
This project involved the construction of approximately 4.5 km of clay lined channel in order to upgrade the input capacity of the treatment plant. Works included:
- 300,000m3 of earthworks
- supply and installation of 25,000m3 of rock and drainage pipework
This job required a very high level of quality assurance for the material specification, compaction, permeability and construction survey control. Goldsmith utilised the most up-to-date automated laser/GPS and total station machine guidance and control system to construct the channels to achieve tolerances approaching +/- 0.01m on large scale earthworks.
