PDM is able to:
Project Manager for 16km road widening, works include pavement in situ stabilisation, fifteen (15) culvert reconstruction ranging from 1200 x 300 to 2700 x 2400 up to twelve (12) barrels wide, PMB sealing 10mm primer seal being built by Charters Towers Regional Council construction workforce under PDM Management.
Upgrade and widen the existing shoulders between CH 0.74km to CH 4.02km on the Wills Development Road.
PDM was engaged to undertake the condition assessment of the Charters Towers regional council road network. This condition assessment would be in line with TMR standards as required by the local government association. This assessment covers the full 3,800 km of shire roads and approx. 250km of city roads that are bitumen sealed.
PDM chose to gather this information utilising its mobile mapping system – the high-definition video was processed into PDM’s viewer software to enable assessment of the asset to be undertaken with a greater degree of detail by viewing a 360-degree view of the road at incremental chainage.
The deliverables were a full condition assessment of the road network to state requirements with analysis being undertaken of sealed roads using scan and high definition spatially accurate video data. The development of a pavement management system that can extracted from the GIS system for use in programming and scheduling and maintenance review and audits.
All of this spatial data provides Council the accurate information if and when disasters happen. It provides a measurable, accurate, affordable means to prove their asset was in a certain condition prior to an event. The LiDAR data of the roads is able to further analyse for remaining life assessment.
