Traffic Management

Understanding the Traffic staging and sequencing of the works was paramount in constructing this project due to the live environment and the nature of the works. Chief ensured all works were carried out safely and in time for any traffic switches.

Services Interactions

The project faced significant challenges with services, particularly the existing gas transmission assets located within the works footprint. Alternate methodologies and equipment were required to ensure compliance with revised asset owner criteria to complete Chief Group’s scope of works including compacting and completing works within the proximity of the gas works.
