This project included development of concept designs for upgrading of the intersection from immediate design requirements, allowing for 15 years growth, intermediate layout (15-30 years growth) anda future grade separated interchange (30 years +). This enabled the road reserve for the future interchange to be determined and fixed in place and ensured the current detailed design allowed for the future upgrades. Byrne Consultants undertook detailed design and documentation of all civil works. Including design of roadworks and pavements, traffic signals, electrical reticulation and street lighting, underground stormwater drainage and relocation of existing services. Byrne Consultants also assisted DOI throughout the construction phase.
The signalized intersection was designed for a double diamond phasing configuration and allowed for multiple turning lanes and road train movements on all legs. The design included additional lanes on the highway, additional through, left and right turn lanes on Temple Terrace and development of and first 800m of the Glyde Point connect road. The detailed design included the relocations and/or protection works for major services such as under-grounding the 66KV HV transmission line, relocation of HV and LV power, design of sleeves for relocation of the 900mm dia. and 1000mm dia. water transmission pipelines, protection of the existing 900mm dia. and 1000mm dia. Water main’s and relocation of 4 Telstra optical fibre runs.
