NCHRP Road and Caravan Hardstand

Service: Engineering | Project: Warburton Roadhouse | Location: Great Central Desert, NT

Lycopodium provided design and modelling for a gravel access road and caravan hardstand area for the Warburton Roadhouse

Project Overview

The Ngaanyatjarra Council Regional Housing Program (NCHRP) currently operates as a property manager for rental accommodation for Ngaanyatjarra people and is the sole Regional Service Provider of Indigenous housing management services in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands. NCHRP called for the provision of a gravel access road and caravan hardstand area for the Warburton Roadhouse located in the Great Central Desert.

To facilitate design and to gain familiarity with the project, Lycopodium conducted a desktop review of available information involving a review of whether lateritic material sourced from a local borrow pit could be used to provide a suitable gravel pavement design for the development.

Following this, Lycopodium undertook the necessary earthworks, drainage and roadworks modelling to facilitate the detailed design of the caravan park roadway and associated hardstand areas, the output of which was documented on a roadworks construction plan and detailed road cross-section drawing.

Lycopodium Infrastructure provided detailed earthworks, roads and drainage specifications and drawing deliverables at a suitable level of detail to enable NCHRP to either tender the works to a local contractor, or to self-perform the works.
