The Port Botany Terminal 3 is in a windy and exposed environment and required concrete with low shrinkage and reduced plastic cracking potential.
Boral supplied high durability concrete for the terminal's rigid pavement and structures via a mobile concrete batch plant that had a capacity of 140 cubic metres an hour, which was supported by two independent plants constructed for back-up and a fixed plant at Botany on stand-by.
To deliver this project as safely as possible, more than 100 Boral drivers and concrete testers were put through site-specific safety training. Boral provided 15,000 safe deliveries of concrete. In addition, contractor Laing O'Rourke presented Boral with an award in recognition of safety awareness.
The project was completed in June 2014.
