The Labrador–Carrara Road and Ashmore Road roundabout on the Gold Coast was recently upgraded to a signalised intersection to improve traffic flows and cater for future traffic volumes. Hydro Construction Products (HCP) worked in conjunction with Parsons Brinckerhoff and McIlwain Civil Engineering on the $26 million upgrade.
HCP was able to assist the engineer in taking large volumes of water away from the surface of the road quickly and efficiently with a large aperture grating system. The new High Flow Grating features the Pro-fix locking system, a unique device that is currently being used extensively on multiple projects throughout Australia. Pro-fix can be fitted to a variety of HCP drainage channels and allows quick and easy access for routine cleaning and maintenance where time and safety are paramount.
