DP World - Weigh-in-Motion Upgrade

Location: DP World Terminal, Port Botany 

Client: DP World Australia

Description: DP World Sydney engaged Civilcraft to construct new concrete approach slabs to replace the existing asphalt pavement at the Weigh-in-Motion facility within their Port Botany Terminal. The Weigh-in-Motion facility is used to capture and record axle weights and gross vehicle weights as the vehicles drive over the pavement. The existing asphalt pavement was constructed during the original terminal development and was showing considerable signs of failure including heavy rutting of the asphalt surface.

The project interfaced with terminal operations and required a high level of coordination with DP World operators and personnel in order to minimise disruption to the terminal operations as one Weigh-in-Motion lane had to be closed while the works took place.

Summary of works:

  • Site preparation including locating and isolating existing services
  • Demolition, excavation and removal of existing asphalt pavement
  • Bulk earthworks and subgrade preparation
  • Construction of reinforced concrete approach slabs
  • Application of Rubber Bitumen Bandaging (RBB) to seal joints
