Road maintenance, asphalt supply, laying & traffic management for Dunedin
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.
Keeping Dunedin’s roads maintained
The Dunedin region is on the south-east coast on New Zealand’s South Island. The city that gives the area its name has a worldwide reputation for tertiary education – Dunedin’s University of Otago was New Zealand’s first university. It is also a transport hub for the south of the South Island, traversed by two state highways, a motorway and the Southern Scenic Route, the recommended path for tourists to follow. Road maintenance operations are key to keeping these trunk routes flowing all year round, and Fulton Hogan have the expertise to maintain the road network. We can undertake repairs of all scales on the road surfaces, and undertake maintenance of associated structures such as signage, drainage and bridges.
Minimal impact asphalt supply and laying
Dunedin is a centre of ecotourism, the region hosting several seal and penguin colonies and the internationally renowned Sinclair Wetlands, which are home to many species of rare birds. All industrial activity, therefore, needs to be mindful of the impact it has on the ecosystem. Fulton Hogan’s asphalt supply and laying processes are designed to have minimal impact on the environment. Our emulsion, bitumen and other surfaces are manufactured using the latest low temperature / low emission technologies, saving energy. We supply asphalts which offer optimum performance in even the harshest conditions, and our asphalt laying crews reinforce our green credentials by applying the finished products in an environmentally friendly way.
Traffic management that keeps Dunedin flowing
With the large number of students resulting in a young demographic, Dunedin is a sporting city. Home to The Highlanders Super Rugby franchise, an ITM Cup rugby team and trans-Tasman championship netball team Southern Steel, traffic management measures are required to control traffic generated when these teams play. Fulton Hogan provide an extensive programme which deals with management of both accidental and planned events which impact on the flow of traffic, keeping the region’s communities safe and moving.
