Pheasants Nest Truckstop, NSW

Pheasants Nest, a town located on the Hume Highway between Goulburn and the outskirts of the Sydney metropolitan area, offers roadhouse catering for north and south bound traffic. NSW Roads and Maritime Services recently established a truck stop alongside it to encourage truck drivers to rest.

Project Design Brief

The natural ground slope of the area meant that overland flow, from the Roadhouse, needed to be diverted away from the entry ramp of the highway.

ACO's Solution

To eliminate sheet flow from entering the traffic, ACO’s KerbDrain, with its repetitive slot pattern, was specified to intercept surface water.

Benefits

  • Unlike conventional kerb & gutter systems, KerbDrain is a compact monolithic channel & kerb profile drain that allows engineers to transform kerbs into continuous inlet structures with minimal excavation.
