Project: Mulgoa Road Rail Bridge Upgrade
Client: McConnell Dowell
Fulfilling the role of both Utility Survey Manager and Locater/Surveyor, Locaters P/L were engaged to provide site locating, utility identification, surveying, permit sign offs, utilities model rationalisation/data management and awareness training to the delivery construction team.
