UEA has successfully negotiated a Horizontal Directional Drilling contract for two underbores in the Hunter Valley area on behalf of a gas authority. Requiring underbores of railway lines, motorways and watercourses, UEA will mobilise their Vermeer D100x120 and Ditch Witch AT3020 to undertake a 100m and a 460m underbore in rock. The project is expected to be completed in two phases as work fronts become available.
The project allows for a market expansion to supply the developing suburb of North Rothbury and requires works to be undertaken in Branxton and Huntlee.
Work will commence in early November 2015, with an expected completion date within the first quarter of 2016.
