Precast box culverts help speed upgrade of historic road

Rocla Pipeline Products in Sydney is currently supplying a large quantity of precast concrete box culverts for the upgrade of the historic Windsor Road.

The NSW Roads & Traffic Authority is upgrading this major north-western link between Parramatta and Windsor under the slogan “All the Way to Windsor.”

The $380 million project is the largest urban arterial road program undertaken by the State Government and will see the Windsor and Old Windsor Roads widened to at least four lanes.

Daracon Engineering is responsible for a 3km section between Boundary Road and Level Crossing Road at Vineyard, including all earthworks, roadworks and drainage.

The first of three culvert crossings has been supplied to Daracon.

To maintain continuous traffic flow, the culverts were installed in two stages. The ease of handling and speed of installation of precast box culverts makes them ideal for roadwork applications where traffic disruption has to minimised.
