Danterr’s Expertise in Action

In the Rozelle Interchange project, Danterr’s specialised construction materials played a crucial role. The use of concrete spacers ensured precise alignment and stability in concrete structures, vital for the project’s integrity. For the tunnel pavements, tall SOG bar chairs and fibreglass deformed reinforcing bars provided essential reinforcement, enhancing strength and durability. Furthermore, the application of Danterr’s bitumen-impregnated fibreboard vectorfill behind barriers and in construction joints, along with dowels in barriers, pavements, and bridge construction, showcases the diverse and critical roles Danterr’s products played in this major infrastructure project.

Achieving Milestones: Rozelle Interchange Project Timeline

The Rozelle Interchange project has been marked by a series of significant milestones since its inception. From the commencement of design in January 2019 to the accelerated pace of tunnelling, each phase has demonstrated the project’s meticulous planning and swift execution. Importantly, Danterr’s materials have been integral at every stage. The project, which began tunnelling ahead of schedule in November 2019, has progressed steadily, with completion scheduled for late 2023. This timeline not only reflects the efficiency of the teams involved but also the enduring impact the project will have on Sydney’s infrastructure landscape.
