Eco, the tunnel boring machine on the Gold Coast Seaway project we are delivering for John Holland / City of Gold Coast, has resurfaced from its 1385m subsea crossing underneath the Gold Coast Broadway.

This project involved the installation of 1385m of OD2500, ID2100 Reinforced Jacking Pipe from Quota Park, Biggera Waters to South Stradbroke Island.  As part of the scope of works, Bothar was also responsible for the temporary works design and construction of launch and retrieval shafts required for pipe jacking operations, as well as all other engineering design required for pipe jacking operations.

A big shout out to Kieran O’Connor, Project Manager, and the entire #Bothar Project Team for maintaining world class safety standards while delivering this essential project during this unprecedented time in the world.
