The West Gate Tunnel Project – A Danterr Passion Danterr is proud to be part of the West Gate Tunnel Project – a project that will change the way people move around Melbourne and how trucks get to the ports and wharf’s within Melbourne Harbour. The project will fall into three categories, each of which Danterr is uniquely involved with – from supplying permanent concrete accessories, to site consumables, Danterr has professionally sourced hundreds of specialty products for every step of this major endeavor.
The West Gate Freeway, one of the most congested motorways in Australia, will be upgraded and widened from 8 to 12 lanes. New express lanes between the M80 and the West Gate Bridge will reduce weaving and merging that leads to traffic congestion. New tunnels from the West Gate Freeway to the Maribyrnong River, are under construction, and upon completion will take motorists and trucks underground and off residential streets.
Then there is the Port to City precinct which will include a new bridge over the Maribyrnong River and an elevated road along Footscray Road will provide direct links to the Port of Melbourne, CityLink and an extended Wurundjeri Way.
In conjunction with CPB and John Holland, Danterr is thrilled to be providing specialised products to this project. Building an entirely new precinct, a new bridge, widening roads, and of course boring tunnels, requires thousands of different products as to ensure all aspects of this game-changing project are delivered as designed. All Victorians and visitors alike will benefit greatly from the West Gate Tunnel Project. Like with any major infrastructure project, the West Gate Tunnel will continue to evolve, and as it does, at Danterr we will continue to supply more and more products. The West Gate Tunnel Project will require sacrificial formwork like pecafil, thousands of spacers, hundreds of debonding tubes, bitumen board and expansion foam to fill the thousands of concrete joints entailed in a project of this size – backing rod, grouts, sealants, waterstops… the list is extensive and almost endless! Membranes and builders’ film, denso tape, epoxy, curing compounds. Almost anything that helps concrete remain structurally integral and keeps water out will be needed to complete the West Gate Tunnel. At Danterr, we are proud to say we have already started our distribution of products to this mammoth undertaking and we have the potential, ability and expertise to supply every one of these above-mentioned products without delay when we are called upon to do so. www.danterr.com displays our sphere of expertise.
