Construction of the 1321sqm of Reinforced Earth® retaining walls RECO has designed and supplied for the Ravenswood Interchange Project in Victoria is progressing well. CPB Contractors are building an elevated circular roadway as well as two bridges to safely carry traffic over new carriageways on the Calder Freeway. RECO is providing three Reinforced Earth® structures to support and connect key elements of the new infrastructure on the $86million project. RECO has been awarded further works on the project as a preferred contractor, based on the great performance in delivering these three walls. This photograph was taken on a site visit last week by Lukas Toman, RECO Project Manager.

Toowoomba Second Range Crossing - Morleys Road

By Megan Maurer

Nov 2016

The Reinforced Earth® TechSpan® precast concrete arch segments have been installed for the Morleys Road underpass tunnel on the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing Project in QLD. With the arch elements now in place, impermeable geotextile and grouting will be applied to the joints and a reinforced concrete beam will be constructed along the crown of the arch. The Reinforced Earth® backfill will then be placed over the tunnel creating a strong base for the road above. This system is designed to accommodate high fills, heavy live loads and altering loading conditions making it perfect for this application.
