Brisbane civil construction and road maintenance
Fulton Hogan creates, connects and cares for communities; building the roads, ports, airports, infrastructure and property which brings people together. We build communities literally from the ground up, starting with our own network of quarries, complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and pre-cast plants. Our Queensland operations include a quarry and 13 asphalt plants, with civil construction, surfacing, and infrastructure services division for Queensland based at Brisbane, and road maintenance services are also available throughout the state.
Civil construction in Brisbane and Queensland
Fulton Hogan, with civil construction, traffic management, road repair and road maintenance capabilities, is often at the frontline in the aftermath of disasters and emergencies such as the flooding in Queensland and Brisbane.
Bathed in sub-tropical sunshine and surrounded by rivers, Brisbane’s fun-loving approach to city living has suffered in recent years. Torrential downpours flooded townships at horrifying speeds and caused widespread damage. Floodwaters moved downstream submerging large parts of Brisbane. Further floods and cyclones occurred in subsequent years, leaving a real need for large scale civil construction to rebuild roads, bridges, and earthworks, and Fulton Hogan’s flood remediation works on behalf of the Transport Network Reconstruction Program have been taking place in the Fitzroy region, Cunningham’s Gap, and Brisbane.
A 70km stretch of the Bruce Highway south of Rockhampton will have 40km of repairs. Works on this project include forming, widening, and stabilisation and surfacing of flood-damaged roads. Other road-based civil construction projects include upgrading 2.6km of six lane divided motorway on the Bruce highway at Gympie, north of Brisbane, installing lighting and constructing a bridge over railway lines.
As part of the Origin Alliance, Fulton Hogan upgraded 8.5km of motorway feeding Brisbane’s south west for the Ipswich Motorway Upgrade. Fulton Hogan also continued with surfacing works for councils and communities in Brisbane and Queensland, from asphalt plants located throughout the state.
Fulton Hogan’s civil construction and surfacing operations extend to air travel, with work done at a number of regional airports, and a large contingent of 100 people to make and lay 14,000 tonnes of asphalt at Brisbane Airport within the five hour window when the runway is closed.
Brisbane road maintenance
Fulton Hogan’s extensive experience and expertise in building and upgrading roads, combined with state-of-the-art equipment and expert traffic control, means that Fulton Hogan can be relied on to maintain the roads in to Brisbane and communities throughout Queensland.
Programmed road maintenance can be contracted to look after footpaths, drains, street furniture and signs for communities in Brisbane and Queensland. Working with water management authorities, Fulton Hogan maintains drains and vegetation for waterways and drainage systems.
Organisations in Brisbane and Queensland may be focussed on large projects to rebuild Queensland’s road network, but for councils and local communities, Fulton Hogan’s 13 asphalt plants spread throughout Queensland, and road maintenance teams with specialised road inspection vehicles, are able to provide a responsive service for both programmed maintenance and single incident response.
Fulton Hogan can also supply the state with a full range of bituminous products, including bulk fill, aggregates, road base, asphalt mixes, railway ballast, speciality sand and gabion rock, from Blue Rock Quarry – one of five managed by Fulton Hogan around Australia.
