New South Wales and Queensland, Australia - Arcadis was employed as Independent Verifier in a certifying role to ensure that all the diverse requirements of the brief were met for the design, construction, and ten year maintenance. Independent verification was required on all aspects of the new Motorway works including the cut and cover tunnel works.
The $A543M, 7 km Tugun Bypass motorway traverses environmentally sensitive areas, with difficult ground conditions and features a landmark 340 m long cut and cover tunnel under the runway extension of the Gold Coast Airport.
As Independent Certifier, Arcadis oversaw the construction of the highly complex project while servicing the requirements of two different state governments.
The new motorway has not only brought significant benefits for commuters and freight transport, but picked up two major awards-the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards 2009, and the Master Builders Association Awards 2009-National Environmental and Energy Building Efficiency Award.
