Joe Wagner Group was appointed by RoadTek to provide supervision, plant and operators for batter trimming between Rolleston and Roma. A significant portion of this project involved the construction of gabion baskets and rock mattresses at Dawson River and Dawson River Overflow crossings.
- Site establishment
- The construction of 9 gabion structures ranging from 1 metre to 4 metres in height
- The construction of a rock mattress
This project required careful planning as it took place in remote locations with no phone service. Work crews required rope access safety equipment to safely construct the rock mattresses on the steep slopes.
As the work was in an environmentally sensitive area, strict environmental controls were observed.
