Evans Avenue is a busy thoroughfare and small business precinct. The project consisted of full width road rehabilitation whilst maintaining traffic flow in both directions and retaining access to the local businesses. Vassallo Constructions in conjunction with Mackay Regional Council undertook extensive liaison with stakeholders to ensure disruption was minimised. To reduce the impact, stabilisation of the road was completed at night after business hours concluded, including businesses such as restaurants.
Due to a major water trunk main being located adjacent to the kerb, stormwater drainage upgrades were undertaken within the traffic lanes. An upgrade to the consumer water main, required careful coordination to ensure businesses were not adversely affected, including temporary supply pipes being installed.
During construction buried illegally dumped waste was encountered and Vassallo Constructions managed the clean-up and reprogramming of the works to minimise the impact on the project.
