General Information

The Weakleys Drive Interchange project involved the elevation of the New England Highway over the intersection with Weakleys Drive and the extension of Weakleys Drive to a new roundabout at Glenwood Drive. Located in the Hunter Valley region of NSW, the aim of the project was to reduce traffic congestion and increase safety for motorists.

The project involved the construction of six Reinforced Earth™ walls. The system adopted was the Reinforced Earth’s square or rectangular shaped RECO TerraPlus® is, modular, precast concrete facing panel system. RECO developed it in response to client demand for non-proprietary shaped panels and the widespread popularity growth of project specific architectural finishes. Its broad market acceptance is a result of its ability to accept a wide range of architectural finishes, rapid, easy construction and good performance on soft foundations.

Butu Wargun Drive - Greystanes

The Reinforced Earth™ walls were constructed within a very tight corridor with limited site access requiring a staged construction process. The project was completed within 3 days of the originally nominated construction programme of 4 months. Both dayshift and nightshifts were carried out over the 4 moth period to enable tight programming for panel, select backfill and integrated crash barrier crews to complete their works whilst wall construction continued.

Completion of this project in such a timely manner illustrates retaining solutions expertise in Reinforced Earth™ construction and project management.
