The contractor sourced a series of Deltabloc DB80 concrete crash barriers from Fortress Fencing.
When contractors working on the Bruce Highway Duplication near Cairns required concrete crash barriers, local supply was a problem.
The team at Fortress Fencing was determined to find a solution to circumvent the hefty freight costs and still provide the barriers required for this project.
Working around active traffic situations, it was critical for workers to fence off work zones with a safety barrier.
The Fortress Fencing team supplied 200 metres of Lo-Ro barriers to the site. The Lo-Ro water cable barrier is MASH Tested to TL-1 & TL-2, and designed for applications where low deflection is important.
Fortress Fencing supplied Deltabloc DB80 Concrete road barriers fitted with steel anti-gawking screens and SLED end treatments.
In this application, the Western Program Alliance team have used SLED end terminals fitted to the concrete crash barriers. SLED stands for Sentry Longitudinal Energy Dissipater.
Temporary access roads needed to be be built and the contractor required a strong and stable barrier to line these roads. Water field barriers presented an ideal solution due to their flexible nature – as the site needs changed and the construction work progressed, the barriers could be shifted as necessary.
Fortress Fencing’s 2000 Series galvanized fence panels presented an ideal solution to create a simple and effective exclusion zone.
The 2.4 metre long panels are quickly and easily erected by two people using concrete filled fence feet and bracing to hold them in place.
