Dry Creek road maintenance & spray seal
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.
Fulton Hogan provide road maintenance solutions from its Dry Creek base for Adelaide’s northern metropolitan road network. Originally laid out as a garden suburb for the employees of a soap manufacturer, Dry Creek is now an industrial area surrounded by extensive salt pans and wetlands. Dry Creek is traversed by the Pacific Highway, the main route along the south coast of Australia ultimately linking Melbourne and Perth, and the other significant arteries of Adelaide’s northern suburbs’ road network.
Local Dry Creek road maintenance solutions
Fulton Hogan has worked with South Australia’s Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and local councils to maintain suburban roads in Dry Creek and its surrounding communities. We use mobile devices out in the field to record any defects or hazards on the road network, the information transmitted back to a control centre where it is analysed and any appropriate remedial action arranged. In line with one of Fulton Hogan’s central philosophies of road maintenance, we have people on the ground locally who are able to make decisions that best suit the communities they are operating in. This empowerment at a local level means the decisions made are the best for the inhabitants of Dry Creek and its surrounds, as opposed to an across-the-board solution using a company-wide template.
Dry Creek’s location near Barker Inlet and the wetlands in the area make Fulton Hogan’s expertise in drainage maintenance and bridge maintenance and rehabilitation, a few of the wide range of services we offer as part of our road maintenance packages, particularly useful. Fulton Hogan’s fully integrated approach to transport infrastructure gives our road maintenance teams immediate access to whatever is required to fix problems; high quality asphalts, sealing and paving products and surface emulsions are all available from the Dry Creek base, along with the equipment required for implementing traffic management systems to keep the roads safe.
Fulton Hogan’s spray sealing teams in Dry Creek
The Dry Creek depot is also home to Fulton Hogan’s spray sealing teams, who repair and maintain roads in the rural areas of South Australia. Farming, forestry and wine-making are mainstays of the state’s economy. Our innovative spray sealing technologies improve the surface quality, and increase the lifespan, of the roads carrying the produce of these important businesses to market.
