York Civil has been awarded three new projects within South Australia:
- Margaret Dowling and Bank J Regulator Structures for SA Water in the Riverland
- Techport Common User Facility (CUF) Wharf Extension for Defence SA, and
- Adelaide Freight Terminal Office Upgrade for Asciano Executive Services.
The Margaret Dowling contract includes the construction of regulators and fishways in the Margaret Dowling Creek, as well as new pedestrian and road bridges over the creek. York Civil will also remove the existing timber footbridge and rock pillars intact, which will be delivered to the Paringa Museum for preservation.
This project follows the successful delivery by York Civil of numerous projects in the Riverland area, and is another step forward in the State and Commonwealth government’s $98.9m Riverine Recovery Program (RRP), which aims to improve the ecological health of the riverine environment between the South Australian-Victorian border and Wellington. This is the third RRP project awarded to York Civil over the past two years, with the Construction of Deep Creek Structure at Pike and Construction of Infrastructure for Pike Floodplain completed in the past 18 months.
The Adelaide Freight Terminal contract follows on from the completion of early works and phase one of the Terminal Upgrade. The works comprise the refurbishment of three office buildings and demolition of two demountable buildings, which will be replaced with a new two storey office facility. The scope also includes increasing the carpark capacity, creating a new outdoor meeting and crib area, as well as the landscaping of surrounding areas. These works will increase both capacity and efficiency for Pacific National operations.
The Techport CUF Wharf Extension extends the current wharf to accommodate expansion of the facilities ship and submarine building capacity. The CUF is located in South Australia’s maritime precinct and is a state owned facility for ship building and maintenance activities.
Project works include removal and replacement of the existing rock revetment, scour protection, and installation of piles, concrete deck and berthing bollards.
