UEA Electrical was contracted to undertake asset relocation works as part of a 2km road widening project along one of the main arterials within Sydney’s rapidly growing North West. This project required significant project management expertise in order to deliver the asset relocation program due to the transient nature of a road widening schedule.
UEA Electrical was responsible for relocating all electrical infrastructure along the 2km route which encompassed:
- Non-destructive service location
- Civil works for conduit (duct) installation
- 150m underbore for creek
- Conduit (duct) installation
- HV, LV and SL cable hauling
- Overhead linework construction, deviation and augmentation
- Level 2 service extensions
- Installation of 85 street lights including footings, columns and lanterns
- Padmount / kiosk substation installation
- Padmount switching station installation
- All HV and LV cable jointing including:
– Straight through joints (STJ)
– Substation terminations
– Underground to overhead connections (UGOH)
– Street lights
– Pillars / Turrets
The most critical concern whilst relocating electrical assets for a road widening is how the widening program interacts with the electrical design. Quite often temporary works are required before the final iteration of the design can be implemented. Careful planning and exceptional project management is required to juggle the necessary program of works and it is in this area that UEA excels setting it apart from the competition.
