Armadale Road to North Lake Road Bridge Project is a $237million road infrastructure project jointly funded by the Australian ($189.6 million) and Western Australian ($47.4 million) governments. The project is being delivered by the Armadale Access Alliance (a consortium of Laing O'Rourke and BG&E as non-owner participants). The project comprises construction of a bridge over Kwinana Freeway connecting Armadale Road to North lake Road. The existing interchange at Kwinana Freeway is one of the most congested intersections in the metropolitan area.
The project includes construction of free-flowing traffic lanes on Armadale Road via a dive structure at Solomon Road intersection and an overpass at Tapper Road intersection with full connectivity retained through grade-separated roundabouts. A safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists is provided via new principal shared paths and underpasses which link the Kwinana PSP to Armadale Road PSP.
The role is unique to APP in that the certification covers the construction of the works only, and this is the first engagement under Main Roads WA alliance contract. The role involves surveillance, inspections, reviews and audits of all products and processes that affect the out-turn quality of the construction works. To date, the APP team of Matthew Jewell, Chris White and Stanislav Koslov have engaged closely with the Alliance in the early stages of construction to share quality lessons from previous major infrastructure projects and offer advice on specification enhancements and to ameliorate construction processes whilst maintaining the overall performance of the product.
We look forward to working with Armadale Access Alliance on the successful delivery of a quality product.
