Extending the Service Life4

South Road Superway: Adelaide. SA, Australia

Xypex Admix C-5000 and Ecotec Silica Fume have been specified in South Australia's new $812 million South Road Superway.

Requiring long term durability and protection of reinforcement steel due to the aggressive nature of the soil, Xypex Admix C-5000 has been placed in all piles and pile caps, while Ecotec Silica Fume has been placed throughout all of the concrete.

The South Road Superway will feature:

  • a 2.8 kilometre elevated roadway
  • a two-way service road underneath the elevated roadway at-grade signalised intersections at Cormack Road, Grand Junction Road, Kateena Street and Days Road
  • urban design and landscaping with a mix of indigenous shrubs, groundcovers and grasses
  • the most advanced motorway management system integrated into the Traffic Management Centre.

The design and construction has been awarded to Urban Superway Joint Venture comprising John Holland Pty Ltd, McMahon Contractors Pty Ltd and Leed Engineering and Construction Pty Ltd.

Xypex Australia is pleased to be partnering with engineers GHD and concrete suppliers Boral and Holcim for this project.
