Docklands Electrical and Communications Infrastructure Docklands
Victoria 2002

Client: Powercor Australia/Transfield Consortium


Daly’s Constructions completed this project for the Powercor/Transfield Consortium in Docklands Victoria. The project involved the installation of electrical and communication conduits and associated hauling pits for a route length approximately 10km.

High and low voltage cable hauling was included in the contract with one of the cable hauls being 1,250 metres and included two ninety-degree sweeping bends. Specifically designed caterpillars assisted the cable hauling. Another cable haul of 650 metres was under the Yarra River at the Bolte Bridge, which involved hauling simultaneously three copper HV cables pulled through a PE conduit. The project also included the management and disposal of contaminated spoil, which involved the tracking of every cubic metre of spoil. The Docklands Infrastructure Project was completed on time and within budget and, most importantly, to our client’s satisfaction.
