The T2E runs for 16.3klm consisting of Highway road and 360 metres of tunnel with the entrance being at Ewingsdale. The job is moving 3.5million tonnes of dirt and is a highly environmentally sensitive worksite.
Jemna started its involvement with this project carrying out the preconstruction mix trials. Jemna was then awarded the contract for 40 kilometres of shotcrete handsprayed concrete storm water drain linings. The speed and success of the project has given Jemna the opportunity to upgrade from their one crew contract to using a three man x three crew.
When the project reached the tunnel stage, the entrance being at the Ewingsdale end , Baulderstone requested Jemna’s service for their Tunneling needs. The tunnel project required training and certification (VOC), Vehicle operational Competency for Baulderstones shotcrete operators and underground Robotic Shotcrete equipment.
The Pacific Highway upgrade is coming to a close, it started in 2012 and will finish 2016. This contract is a special contract for Jemna, being the first major civil job under its belt.
