SCOPE OF WORKS
Increased traffic between Sippy Creek Road and surrounding exits off the Bruce Highway was creating significant safety risks as identified by DTMR. Sippy Creek Road also had Q50 flooding issues.
The project involved:
- Constructing a 1.3km, two lane service road to the west of the existing Bruce Highway to connect Frizzo Road with Sippy Creek Road. The new service road is predominantly ‘green field’ construction with tie-ins at either end.
- Upgrading and realigning the existing Frizzo Road northbound entry ramp to the Bruce Highway.
- Realign and lengthen the existing northbound entry ramp from Frizzo Road onto the Bruce Highway so it complied with current safety standards.
- Realigning Frizzo Road and Martin Road intersection.
- Constructing a new single span bridge (17.5m long x 11.4m wide) over Sippy Creek Road with the superstructure constructed from precast pre-stressed concrete deck units that are transversely post-tensioned, cast in place piles to support the abutment headstocks.
- Reconfiguring the existing Sippy Creek Road intersection, including closing access to the Bruce Highway and closing the Bruce Highway median gap opposite the intersection.
- Clearing and grubbing, earthworks, pavement construction, drainage construction, installation of road furniture and street lighting.
