Macquarie Street Upgrade – Gracemere
Engaged by Rockhampton Regional Council, Knobel Engineers was responsible for the civil design and documentation of the Macquarie Street upgrade in Gracemere, Central Queensland.
Macquarie Street is situated in the Gracemere Industrial Area, the industrial hub and gateway to the Galilee Basin.
The upgrade was an initiative of both the local and state government to accommodate b-double truck access to the Gracemere Industrial Area.
The design particularly involved roadworks and stormwater drainage including Hydraulic flood modelling of the existing Gracemere Creek to accommodate sufficient cross drainage to improve flood immunity.
