Critical Timelines   
The project was completed on time.

Client Response
Good working relationships with the client; designers and other stakeholders has resulted in the very successful completion of the construction plan.

Port River Expressway

Construction of a four lane road between Port Adelaide and Salisbury Highway / South Road Connector including bridges over Eastern Parade at  South Connector and Hanson Road. Bardavcol’s role was to Design, Construct and Maintain the Expressway for a 10 year period. This involved a significant Project Management role relating to the complex design, verification and client roles in addition to management of the construction processes. Bardavcol undertook the majority of the works directly with subcontract components for the bridge and some contract structures.

Key features include:
5.5 km 4 lane expressway
270 m 4 lane road overpass
2 x 32m Bridges
4 major drainage crossings
Major reuse of existing and used recycled materials
Significant environmental management component
Management of difficult geotechnical environment
