Huon Highway Shoulder Widening

The Franklin to Swamp Road shoulder widening project for the Department of State Growth is part of continual efforts to improve road user safety on rural roads. The section of work is to widen 1600 lm of widening in addition to 3 sections of new guardrail and some culvert extensions.

Puddles and the team of predominantly subcontractors have put in a great effort with the shoulder master and semi flowcon truck to place up to 650t of material a day; three times faster than the allocated production rate!

This has enabled us to make up for some initial delays and put the project back on track to finish before the Christmas break.

It is also great to have Tom Ashlin back on board for his final summer of vacation work prior to completing his degree next year and beginning with us as a graduate engineer in the summer of 2021.
