Our most significant involvement in this Government initiative was the Revesby Turnback project. Locaters Pty Ltd was engaged on a full-time basis to identify existing utilities and to assist our client in maintaining a fully functioning rail network.

Our role was to collect and distribute Sub-surface Utility Information accurately and efficiently for project managers, on-site designers, site supervisors and field personnel.

Project issues:

  • Ethane gas pipeline
  • Existing and operational RailCorp communications, electrical and signalling infrastructure
  • Optic fibre networks
  • Restricted work environment

How we helped:

  • Gained detailed understanding of client requirements
  • Supplied multiple staff, as needed, to accommodate the demands of the project
  • Managed subcontractors including potholing and traffic control
  • Assisted in implementing an effective ‘Permit to Excavate’ procedure
  • Provided toolbox briefings
  • Provided detailed site mark up for survey
  • Undertook utility identification and reporting
  • Delivered data in PDF plans and CAD formats
  • Provided ongoing detailed site mark up/remark for construction activities
  • Prepared DSS WAX updates

Locaters also provided intermediate services, primarily locating and reporting to the other projects under this program.
