Spiire’s Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture and Surveying teams were engaged by VicRoads to provide specialist services to the Napier Street Upgrade in Bendigo. Our Civil Engineering team provided investigation and detailed design services for the project. Napier Street, as part of the Midland Highway arrival sequence into the City of Bendigo is a significant arterial road as well as a local destination.
The project works will present some significant changes to the Napier Street environment including
changes to vehicle movements, parking, crossings, services and turning points as well as the removal of the majority of trees currently within the corridor. Our Civil Engineering team were responsible for the service investigation and detailed design for the relocation and augmentation of all services to allow the upgrade of the arterial road. This involved close consultation with all service providers including Powercore, Coliban water, Telstra & NBN and AusNet.
The Civil Engineering team coordinated services around multiple intersection upgrades along the 2km strip of road. Through the construction process our Civil team also played a supporting role assisting the civil contractors with the service augmentations.
The project presented several challenges to the team including restricted space requirements to move all services into the existing road reservation. Given the limited space requirements, our Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture teams collaborated closely in order to deliver green elements into the road design.
The landscape design celebrates Napier Street as a northern gateway into the City of Bendigo and includes a triple avenue of large canopy trees that will be a landmark boulevard for generations to come. Our Surveying team also delivered the construction set-out survey for the contractor.
