UEA has been successful in its bid for the first of a number of trenchless crossing packages for water and sewer pipelines on a $100m capital works project in North West Sydney. The project is being delivered through a recognised national construction company in a design and construct arrangement.
Not all trenchless techniques and technology are created equal. Each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks and selecting the right method for the job is an important part of the planning process for trenchless contractors.
UEA Trenchless was contracted by CLM Infrastructure to complete a 70 metre 1050mm diameter steel sleeve insertion as part of a reticulation water main renewal for NetWorks Alliance (NWA) in Bankstown, Sydney. Part of this project was located within school grounds and it was essential all works were completed prior to the students return at the commencement of the school year.
UEA Trenchless has completed a pilot tube microtunneling project for a leading Australian retailer in Aspley, Queensland.
UEA have continued to develop flowable grouts to suit high specification trenchless installations. The latest grout design allows small annular spaces to be filled over long distances on very flat grades.
UEA Trenchless recently completed a 110 metre 450mm diameter bore using pilot tube microtunneling methods beneath the Bruce Highway at Dakabin, 26km North of Brisbane in Queensland. UEA worked successfully with CLM Infrastructure to deliver an innovative solution for inserting small diameter pipe on very flat grades over long distances.
