Client: Origin Alliance
Project: D2G Ipswich Motorway Upgrade
Job: Mine Subsidence Monitoring
The Ipswich Motorway upgrade project is funded by the Australian Federal Government renewing 8 km of motorway between Dinmore and Goodna. Construction works started in mid 2009 and are expected to be completed by 2012. It is one of the largest Road Alliance Projects ever undertaken in Queensland.
ITM-Soil oversaw the installation of over 2km of rods in boreholes across the Dinmore to Goodna site. Each rod had anchors at even depths to monitor subsidence occuring in the mines below the construction site. Each rod was connected to a vibrating wire displacement transducer and read via a radio transmitter. Data is collected and displayed in the main office using I-Site data presentation software.
