Mountain Road, Cockatoo
MQG were successful in supplying a growing medium for the top dressing of the sporting field. Within the Dandenong Rangers is the Cockatoo Recreation Reserve. It’s a peaceful parkland area where visitors and locals go to exercise, play and relax. It is also home to the Cockatoo Little Athletics club where children/teenagers can meet up, learn and compete in all aspects of athletics.
The volume required for this project was 1,622 tonnes of our Turf 200 Sand. The project required specific Particle Size Distribution (PSD), drainage rate and pH to be met.
Sand was delivered from the 11/05/2017 and was completed on the 15/05/2017. This site was one of the more challenging sporting fields logistically. With tight access for our trucks to turn around in once delivery of sand was complete. Melbourne’s weather was a challenge due to starting supply of sand in late Autumn. As a result of the soft ground of the sporting field, this forced deliveries to unload onto the gravel carpark.
Communication from the start to finish was great between, the civil construction contractor, all drivers, and our quarry staff. Hence this project was completed within specifications, on time and on budget.
