Project challenges include:

• 300,000m3 of earthworks undertaken on steep slopes with difficult geotechnical conditions. The site is in close proximity to a highly valued ecological corridor with a sensitive receiving environment

• Extensive retaining walls were required throughout including mechanically stabilised earth walls

• Civil infrastructure (roading, drainage, water, utilities) to serve approx. 200 residences in Stage 2, including Trunk watermain diversions

• Power supply diversions by complex drilling installations
