This project involved the widening of a critical 1.2km stretch of Captain Cook Drive, expanding this vital arterial road from two lanes to a four lane, divided carriageway. Running adjacent the new road is a brand new footpath and cycleway, with associated fencing and landscaping.
The works included sensitive handling of significant contaminated fill areas, stormwater upgrades and electrical infrastructure and pathways. The project’s location adjacent the Towra Point Wetlands saw Haslin develop a system of temporary cofferdams that allowed the sensitive ecosystem to thrive without contamination and works to proceed without delay.
This upgrade has greatly improved access and traffic flow for Sutherland Shire residents to nearby residential areas, commercial areas, schools and Shark Park.
“HASLIN’s head office is in the Sutherland Shire, so it’s been great to be able to deliver a project in our own backyard that benefits the local community”
Greg Blundell, Project Manager
