Major Bypass Road Construction
Panorama Drive, Yeppoon

JRT were proud to be an integral part of this important project on the Capricorn Coast. The important link in the Livingstone Shire Council’s strategic road network provides a transport link to service the Capricorn Coast’s northern growth corridor as well as a critical alternate evacuation and supply route during natural disasters.
The $19 million, jointly-funded local and state government project is 3.8km long and traverses through very steep terrain. This terrain required expertise in large scale cut & fill, embankment stabilisation, significant retaining wall structures up to 20m high and large scale Bebo Arch bridge drainage culverts.

Given the unpredictability of the conditions on a site which was in an environmentally sensitive area, JRT faced a number of challenges regarding the need to rectify poor/unsuitable subsurface ground conditions. JRT still managed to deliver the project on-budget and ahead of schedule.
