A new freight depot for multi-modal transport and logistics company SCT was to be developed for receiving rail freight direct to their logistics centre. The former farm land site at Penfield had restricted access and services. Tonkin Consulting provided civil engineering design to extend services to the new industrial facility.
The Pellew/Short Road intersection was modified to allow B-Double vehicles access to the facility from Pellew Road as well as the existing entry points on Short Road.
The water main along Heaslip Road was extended 1.5km to supply potable water to the facility. A section was constructed by pipe jacking beneath the Adelaide-Darwin Railway line.
Existing stormwater culverts under the road and rail line needed major upgrades to protect downstream properties from significant storm events.
Tonkin Consulting designed and managed the civil works and supervised construction.
