Case studies & Projects
The project requires management of a patrol along the Parmelia Pipeline for APA to protect people and infrastructure from a disturbance of this high pressure gas transmission pipeline.
The project required a Utility Survey to identify, locate utilities and complete a site features and utility survey to support engineering final design in a replacement plan for water mains constructed more than a century ago in Fremantle. The replacement of water mains was scheduled by the Water Corporation from August to October 2019.
For this project, Abaxa was involved with Perth’s first Smart Freeway including creation of an additional lane from Canning Highway to Narrows Bridge. The Smart Freeway will use smart technology to open and close traffic lanes in the event of an incident and adjust speed limits to get more traffic through during busy periods.
