AWMA were engaged by Waters Excavations to supply three segmented stopboard structures 3.2m high x 2.3m wide.
Project Co-Ordinator Ian Stewart commented on the numerous project challenges including geographical isolation, significant environmental and heritage considerations and the need to eliminate all risks associated with the existing flow control methods.
Mr Stewart said “The AWMA Stopboard gates now provide 100% control with NO environmental damage and finite flow controls while still maintaining access to the embankment road.”
The Stopboard frames were manufactured from stainless steel for durability whilst the stopboard segments are of aluminium construction for ease of use. A pair of lifting ladders were provided to allow a two person manual lift, with each segment weighing 26kg.
“A great outcome for this project was that AWMA’s product performed the job without blowing the budget” said Mr Stewart.
