Roadbore was contracted to assist in the installation of a new water service from an existing main on the opposite side of the road to the connection point. The principal contractor was unable to damage the guttering or recently installed exposed aggregate footpath. Roadbore personnel utilised the vac trucks high pressure water to bore under the guttering and a pneumatic hammer to tunnel under the exposed aggregate footpath and install a conduit for the water service.
The works were successfully completed and with no damage to the existing infrastructure.
Roadbore were contracted to undertake the installation of electrical conduit at a water treatment plant. the work area was known to have a number of unidentified services buried, therefore Roadbore were selected to undertake Hydrostatic Excavavtion to dig a trench approximately 4 metres long. During the excavation 3 existing services were identified, traditional excavation may have broken these, however no damage was caused.
The new trench was 700mm deep and the new conduit was installed, partially back filled with crusher dust and tracker tape installed. The remainder of the trench was then back-filled to previous ground level.
