WHARF WHISPERS – DARWIN CITY WATERFRONT APPEARS

Kitchener Drive - New Drainage Pipes

June 2006

By the end of the first week of June, Frankipile had finished all the support piles for the Convention Centre, and in short time they were packed and gone. SitzlerBM are well into the basement floor slabs, with a forest of columns starting to appear. The first pallets of blocks are rapidly turning into car park retaining walls, and it won't be long before the plywood starts going down for the ground level floor slab.




The image left shows the new stormwater drainage along Kitchener Drive, near the old WW2 Oil Storage tunnels. Pipelaying is progressing well along the full length of the escarpment; BMD are laying groundwater cutoff pipes, Macmahon are on the stormwater, with Wolpers Grahl laying stormwater, electrical and service ducts as part of their contract to upgrade McMinn St and the Kitcher Drive intersection.

 

Sea Wall Earthworks - Almost There!



Amazing what a coat of paint will do!

 

This image clearly shows that earthworks for the seawall are rapidly coming to an end; the gap's nearly closed. Over 300,000 m3 of dirt have already been hauled and dumped, but there's still thousands of tonnes of rock armour to be placed! In other news, Advance Civil have finished laying and testing the new 375mm watermain from Bennett St to the project area and rehab works are almost complete; a job well done.



Kitchener Bay looks a bit bare without the familiar site of the Mabuiag, Hall's dredge, which left site on Friday, June 23 after nearly seven months pumping silt. Lucky that our PC450, Deven, came back from the beauty parlour with a nice new coat of paint, to brighten up the project. Mat, who passed his work tests with flying colours, has now headed off to Mataranka with Roo and Jostein, to the lime quarry.
