DINGLEY BYPASS: BUILT USING LOCALLY SOURCED RECYCLED MATERIAL

Date: 15-Mar-2016

Another major project, the 6.4 km, $156 million Dingley Bypass, has been completed with Alex Fraser materials.

Alex Fraser supplied 269,000 tonnes of Class 4 Crushed Concrete, Class 2 and 3 Crushed Concrete and Recycled Sand to the project, meeting a demanding delivery schedule. Alex Fraser products resulted in 23,000 less tonnes used due to the density savings compared to quarried rock and 770 less truck movements. In addition 1,695,448 kg of CO2 have been prevented from entering the atmosphere through the use of our product.
 
Nearly all the material for the project (96 per cent) was sourced from the local Alex Fraser Clarinda recycling and transfer station. This is an excellent example of how a well-placed site creates excellent outcomes for the local community.
 
The new bypass has three lanes each way with an adjacent shared cycle and pedestrian path running along it and links Warrigal Road at Moorabbin and Westall Road at Dingley Village. The bypass was opened by Minister for Roads and Road Safety Luke Donnellan in mid-March, a full five months ahead of schedule. The new road makes access to our Clarinda site even easier for our customers.
