Vermont Tram Extension Burwood Highway
Client: Thiess Services
Daly’s Traffic completed all traffic treatments for this project on behalf of Thiess and DOI. A twelve month project comprising 24 traffic controllers, it included the construction of 11 new tram platforms, a new integrated bus terminal and 12 bus stops and the widening of Burwood Highway taking into account Springvale Road and Blackburn Road.
Working along such a major arterial with prominent intersection cross overs, planning and communication between all stakeholders was critical in delivering this project safely and on time.
The Springvale Road milestone required a 54 hour continual shutdown of the intersection.
Westgate Bridge Re-surfacing Works
Client: Boral Asphalt
Daly’s Traffic was engaged to undertake the road treatments on the Westgate Bridge for the re-surfacing works program.
This being part of VicRoads ongoing maintenance program, each year one side of the bridge is stripped and resurfaced.
Permanent lane closures with peak hour lane changes ensured crews onsite were kept on high alert and busy during this 3 week operation over the Christmas period.
Asphalt Contract North-West Metro
Client: Boral Asphalt
Daly’s Traffic completed this contract as a sub-contractor to Boral Asphalt, exclusively providing all traffic treatments from planning to implementation.
With an approximate total of 300 nights of work, practical completion was achieved in a little over 9 months; this meant multiple crews of up to 8 traffic controllers per crew working 6 nights a week.
During this time, pivotal arterials including Western Ring Road, Tullamarine Freeway, Westgate Freeway and Hoddle Street underwent major re-sheeting.
This contract also involved the laying of “red” asphalt for bus exclusive lanes. Again, some of Melbourne’s busiest roads were subjected to major treatments to allow for this service to go down. Roads included; Hoddle Street, Johnston Streets and Latrobe and Queen Streets in the CBD.
Spencer Street Melbourne
Client: Daly’s Constructions
This was a CitiPower/Powercor project and involved the installation of a new underground circuit within conduits for approximately 3.3 kilometres.
The project lasted for 7 months with crew sizes of up to 13 traffic controllers to patrol the vast treatments through this sensitive area of the city.
The project required significant traffic management and detailed planning with statutory authorities given the extreme volume of traffic travelling on Spencer Street, Melbourne.
Commonwealth Games Melbourne
Client: Melbourne 2006
This event was orchestrated by Melbourne 2006 and Daly’s Traffic were successful for three events; the lawn bowls, the marathon and the cycle time race.
The lawn bowls kicked off prior to the opening ceremony and required resigning of local streets, linemarking, asphalting, erection of temporary fencing, general traffic management during event days and reinstatement after the event.
For a quarter of the 42km marathon route, Daly’s were required to close roads, resign streets and implement and reinstate various other treatments including the closing of St Kilda Road.
The last assignment of this campaign was the cycle race based on a circuit around the Botanical Gardens. This required the closing/re-opening of, amongst others, Punt Road between the familiarisation and actual event. This required rolling crews over a 96 hour period and is a huge credit to all our staff.
