Paradise and Archibald Street Intersection

Archibald Street is one of the two main access points in to the Paget Industrial Area and is a designated B-Double truck route.  It services a large volume of the precinct traffic both day and night.  Vassallo’s approach to traffic management was crucial to the successful delivery of the project.

An innovative “peanut shaped roundabout” solution was utilised to maintain traffic flow without the need of traffic controllers or signals.  This solution minimise disruption during construction.  Night works were also utilised to reduce the effect on traffic for parts of the project.

The project provided a number of other challenges including high quantities of underground services (both known and unknown), 1350mm dia stormwater duplication, poor subgrades, complicated pavement structures and large landscaped areas.
