Stapylton road maintenance
Fulton Hogan’s site in Stapylton is base for our extensive road maintenance operations program in south-east Queensland. Located near the junction of the Logan Motorway and the Pacific Highway, Stapylton provides access to the busy road networks of Brisbane’s southern suburbs and the Gold Coast. In the early days of settlement the area’s dry rainforest, which then covered the valleys of the nearby Logan and Albert rivers, was an important source of timber used in a number of government buildings, including the Queensland Legislative Council Chamber.
Providing Stapylton with road maintenance required to support high volume road usage
Today, Stapylton is home to providers of power infrastructure and heavy engineering, resulting in usage of the local road network by heavy plant vehicles; and the Gold Coast is one of the fastest growing urban areas in Australia, with an influx of new residents from Sydney and Melbourne. These factors have resulted in very high volume road usage in the area. As the provider of a fully integrated service, Fulton Hogan is able to provide road repair teams wherever and whenever required and can undertake rehabilitation of road networks, in addition to day-to-day road maintenance services.
The Stapylton base played a key role in the company’s road maintenance and repair contribution to the Queensland floods reconstruction program. Within days of the inundation in late 2010 Fulton Hogan had teams working in and around Brisbane clearing debris and starting emergency repairs to the road network. The crews worked for five days straight to ensure essential services were able to move around the region and the general population could begin to return to work. In the ensuing months, Fulton Hogan was involved road and facilities maintenance across the affected areas. Our ongoing maintenance of road assets such as storm water drains, kerbs and channels will help minimise the impact of any such future extreme weather events.
