Gold Coast Highway, Tugun
The connection road between the Gold Coast Highway, Tugun and the recently completed Tugun Bypass, underwent a realignment. Designers had to rearrange the existing stormwater, sewer, electrical and communication infrastructure services.
Project Design Brief
The associated changes affected the cross fall of the road surface. Subsequently, surface water had to be intercepted and removed efficiently without interruption to other services.
Designers selected ACO’s PowerDrain trench drainage system. ACO’s technical department provided documented advice on an appropriately size trench drain which only required a single point of connection to the stormwater network over the drain’s entire run length.
