It involved the widening of South Road at the intersection with James Congdon Drive and Richmond Road which included earthworks, precast drainage installation, granular pavement works, bituminous / asphalt works, lighting installation, upgrade existing signal infrastructure, road furniture and detailed traffic management. Richmond Road was also to upgraded including the construction of an additional east bound lane between South Road and Railway Terrace including the widening of the existing bridge structure over Keswick Creek. James Congdon Drive was also upgraded with the construction of an additional lanes both east and west bound with the subsequent bridge widening over Keswick Creek. Due to the works being undertaken along a major roadway and adjacent a live waterway, extensive traffic management and environmental controls were implemented to ensure a safe and effective work site.
