Major multi-cell pipe crossing

The last stage of the Windsor Park Estate Subdivision in Traralgon required one of the largest multi-cell pipe crossings seen in the Gippsland.

The multi-cell pipe crossing design includes a backwater allowance and enables large amounts of water to find access through the estate quickly, protecting residents from a potential 100 year flooding  event from the nearby Traralgon Creek.

The crossing was made up of 160 600 x 2.44 Rocla®  rubber ring joint Class 2 pipes, 20 cells wide. There  were also 300mm and 225mm Rocla®  rubber ring joint pipes used in the internal drainage at the site.

It took three days to lay the pipes, which were delivered from the Campbellfield plant to the contractor, Sure Constructions’ schedule. “Rocla supplied a reasonable quantity of pipes fairly quickly for us,” says Dave Edwards of Sure Constructions. “Very prompt delivery, very good quality – everything was matching and uniform.”

“I’ve worked with Rocla here and in SA for most of my constructionlife – 25/30 years. It’s about quality of product – it’s always consistent. And if there is an issue – which rarely happens – Rocla is quick to organise replacement and look into it – and you always get feedback as to why it happened.”
