Our contractors, Fulton Hogan, have commenced placement of asphalt at the IMEX terminal at Moorebank Logistics Park.
Prior to the Christmas break, Fulton Hogan Infrastructure Services will place approximately 10,000 tonnes of heavy duty asphalt, PortPhalt®, to the western section of the terminal. PortPhalt® is a highly modified asphalt with double the deformation resistance and load spreading capacity to premium asphalts. The interlocking aggregate structure holds together under high loadings.
The IMEX terminal requires a special pavement design which raises challenges associated with the placement of asphalt to the design levels nominated. The in-house paving specialists at Fulton Hogan have developed the customised solution to achieve the required design profile.
