Construction projects we’ve worked on
At Eastern Plant Hire, we’ve been involved in some of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects. From Melbourne right up the East Coast of Australia to Queensland we’ve been working hard to create a business that, from all locations provides “The Best Service on Earth”.
Heavy Haulage, Materials Cartage and Plant Hire are our specialty. We always love a challenge and have taken on a number of major projects over our time, take a look at our EPH teams onsite and the work we have completed below:
MELBOURNE METRO TUNNEL PROJECT
The Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project includes building the tunnel entrances at Kensington and South Yarra, as well as a new platform at West Footscray. The works also include associated suburban rail upgrades that will maximise the benefits of the Metro Tunnel by providing more services for all passengers.
CITYLINK TULLA WIDENING PROJECT
The CityLink Tulla Widening project aimed to increase capacity by 30 per cent through road upgrades and additional lanes. As one of the main routes of travel from Melbourne to Tullamarine Airport the upgrade of the road was essential to ensuring the airport had reliable travel routes.
AVIATION ROAD LEVEL CROSSING REMOVAL
As part of the Level Crossing Removal Project in Victoria Eastern Plant Hire have been working on the first stage of the Aviation Road Level Crossing Removal. This particular level crossing removal at Aviation Road includes the construction of a motor bridge over the Werribee line and a pedestrian underpass.
CHANDLER HIGHWAY UPGRADE
The $110 million ‘Chandler Highway Upgrade’ project aims to relieve excessive congestion which affects over 44,000 daily road users and is set to see significant reductions in peak time queuing periods, general travel time, and provide room for the future growth of traffic volume.
CITYLINK TULLA WIDENING – BULLA RD TO AIRPORT
We’ve worked on a number of Infrastructure Victoria’s projects over the years, the CityLink Tulla Widening being one of those. We have spent the past five years working on both of the stages, in particular stage 2 the Bulla Road to Melbourne Airport upgrade.
GOLD COAST LIGHT RAIL STAGE 2
After the successful operation of Stage 1 of the light rail, plans were made to link the Gold Coast University Hospital station with the Helensvale train station, with Stage 2 approved in 2016. Stage 2 of the Gold Coast Light Rail consisted of constructing 7.3km of tracks and building 3 new stations.
BAYSWATER LEVEL CROSSING REMOVAL PROJECT
Eastern Plant Hire predominantly undertook materials haulage contracts for Laing O’Rourke, the main contractors for the $177 million Bayswater level crossing removal project. With construction lasting just over a year between 2016 and 2017, the works were finished on time and on budget.
