TRANSPORT

The Mackay region has seen significant growth and development over the past 10 years, with a population growth of 31 per cent and new residential and commercial developments in areas such as Northern Beaches, Beaconsfield, Glenella, Ooralea, Pioneer Valley and Mackay Central Business District (CBD). To support this growth and development, TransLink, a division of the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), together with Mackay Regional Council, is making improvements to your local urban bus network.

Mackay Regional Council required a contractor to perform works to 7 existing bus stops to meet DDA requirements under the Bus Stop Accessibility Works Program.

What we delivered

As Principal Contractor. Bellwether worked with the project’s design team to review and refine the most cost-effective solution upgrading the existing bus stops to meet DDA requirements.

Bellwether’s construction methodology enabled the work to be carried out while the facilities are still operating, which was important to the client and the local community.

Key outcomes

Bellwether’s experience operating in highly sensitive environments and the team’s proactive approach to problem solving resulted in a good outcome for the client and the surrounding community.
