Alder Constructions were contracted by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) for the reconstruction of the Oceanview Track located at Burleigh Heads National Park, Gold Coast.
Burleigh Heads is one of the most popular parks managed by the QPWS, attracting on average 725,000 visitors per year. The Oceanview Track is the predominate thoroughfare amongst the park’s track network.
The project involved the demolition of the existing asphalt footpath and fences, and replacement with a much wider coloured concrete track, stair accesses, viewing platform with seating, gabion basket retaining walls and timber fencing.
- Controlled clearing within a National Park
- Demolition of 1.4km of existing asphalt pathway
- Demolition of over 400m of existing fencing
- Earthworks and ground improvements to provide the new path formation
- Over 150m2 of rock gabion retaining walls
- Nearly 2,000m2 of new coloured concrete footpath
- Construction of access stairs and viewing platforms
- Installation of nearly 500m of new timber fencing and access gates
- Relocation and installation of interpretive signage
- Minor slope stabilization
- All materials were transported along the track using mini excavators and mini dumpers no wider than 900mm due to restricted access along the track
All required Civil works were completed to the Client’s satisfaction, with acknowledgement that the works were completed with an extremely tight and restricted working area, along with the daily control of pedestrians through a high traffic and extremely popular visitor area and attraction.
