Canberra Light Rail – UG Utility Investigations and Survey

Client – Calibre Consulting & Capital Metro Authority

Location – Canberra, Gunghalin to City (12km)

Time frame – 2014/15, 6 Months

Project Description

Scope included engineering/topographic survey combined with investigation & survey data capture of existing U/G utilities. Scope of works comprised of detail survey, service tracing, slit trenching and over 1600+ potholes within proposed alignment corridor of future light rail. Information required for risk assessment of U/G services during design considerations and conflict identification.

All investigation and excavation works were conducted, managed and coordinated in-house by Steger & Associates with deliverables provided for full trace and 3D location of existing services. Summarized reporting was also included for all hydraulic pit lifting, pothole excavations and slit trenching.

Interesting in working with the public on the ground and discussing the ever-present question of “…will they actually build it? Where will the nearest station be?” – Jason Steger
