Pacific Highway Upgrade, Banora Point
Project Design Brief
Located along the heaviest trafficked section of the Pacific Highway in New South Wales, the Banora Point Upgrade project involved the construction of a 2.5km, six lane divided highway with a major viaduct, land bridge and interchanges at both ends.
The $321m project is in a busy urban setting that will provide a freeway link between the Chinderah Bypass and Tweed Heads.
In a highly confined urban area, the project designers solved the challenge of draining a reduced shoulder width by using ACO’s PowerDrain S300K to ensure all surface water was captured quickly and for any resulting width of ponding to not encroach into the traffic lanes.
