PROJECT DESCRIPTION

For the Macedon Project NRW were contracted by JSW Drilling for preparation earthworks allowing for water bore installation. These early works included access road construction, drill pads and preparation of lined ponds.

Part way through the project, additional work was requested of NRW, including the re-sheeting of 4.5 kilometres of road and associated drainage.

The Project’s terrain had numerous environmental and heritage considerations and required strict adherence and careful management practices in this regard.
