A perfect fit for Dingley Arterial

The Dingley Arterial is a new $74.6-million six-lane road in Melbourne’s South Eastern Metropolitan suburbs. The new road is a crucial link in an 11-kilometre arterial to alleviate traffic congestion at a number of major bottlenecks. Throughout 2012, Alex Fraser provided 115,000 tonnes of recycled crushed concrete to the project, via civil construction contractor Fulton Hogan.

Alex Fraser’s facility in Kingston Road, Clayton, made a perfect supply location for Fulton Hogan, the principal contractor for the project. Between January 2012 and December 2012 the Clayton plant supplied Class 4 recycled crushed concrete sub base material, and Class 3 cement treated crushed concrete as a base layer material. Small quantities of 5mm Alex Fraser Recycled Sand was also supplied from our Laverton site, which was used for the construction of approximately 8000 lineal metres of subsurface drainage, alongside 20mm & 14/10 mm aggregates.  

Aidan Thompson, Fulton Hogan’s project manager, had used Alex Fraser recycled crushed concrete road base and aggregates for many years, and appreciated the amount of work that had gone in to achieve VicRoads specification for these products. “I have no problem using Alex Fraser recycled road base or aggregates; they proved to be a perfect fit for us on this project” he said.

“The location of Alex Fraser’s Clayton site made truck turnaround times faster. We also chose Alex Fraser because they assured us they could supply the relatively large volumes at a competitive price” he added.

Aidan also complemented Alex Fraser on its communication skills: “Despite significant inclement weather experienced throughout 2011 the project was delivered two months early, thanks to a number of contributing factors. One of these was working with a dedicated contact at Alex Fraser who understood our requirements on a day-to-day basis. In circumstances where supply targets couldn’t be met, it was communicated well beforehand, avoiding any construction delays”.
