Asphalt production and road laying in Emerald
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’s asphalt production plant in Emerald is located at the junction of the Capricorn and Gregory highways, providing quality products and valuable services to Queensland’s Central Highlands district. As an important service centre for the region, the town of Emerald relies heavily on road infrastructure. Fulton Hogan’s asphalt production and laying team bring valuable experience to road surfacing and other asphalt works required in the local area.
The Capricorn Highway links western Queensland with Rockhampton, while the Gregory Highway runs south from Clermont and services the extensive network of coal mining operations in the Bowen Basin. These major roads, and the network of rural roads that feed into them, need ongoing maintenance to ensure that Queensland’s Central District road infrastructure is operating at full capacity. Fulton Hogan’s expertise, combined with our understanding of local conditions, ensure these byways are maintained to the highest possible standard.
The recent refurbishment of our Emerald asphalt plant and our use of the latest technology allows us to produce pavement and surfacing mixes designed specifically for every project. In the Central District, our products must stand up to extreme weather events such as the disastrous floods that overwhelmed Emerald in 2011. Fulton Hogan is committed to providing the people of Emerald and the surrounding areas of Capella, Blackwater and the Gemfields with the best possible products and services that it takes to maintain our vital roads and highways.
Recent projects in Emerald include the supply and lay of asphalt along the central shopping strip and the car park of the Central Highland Shopping Centre in Emerald.
Fulton Hogan are industry leaders in the development and supply of asphalt. Our products are produced using innovative new ‘green’ technological advances to minimise our impact on the local environment. Our asphalt production and laying team works closely with all our clients to continually improve the quality of our products and services.
