We began working with the Transmission Gully team when the project was still in the investigative stages, back in 2015. We worked closely with the project engineers, scoping the project, and looking at the best solutions to meet the unique needs of the site.
One of the major challenges to overcome was the need for dry working areas for the installation of culverts. Pumps were going to be needed to divert the streams, while culverts were placed.
Reliability was a key concern, due to the fact that once the pump was in place to pump the stream, it had to run continuously until the culvert was in place and ready for the stream to flow through once again.
Also a concern was the environmental aspect – there could be no possibility of fuel or oils entering the waterways.
