Works Reach New Milestone
8,000,000 liner meters of Wick Drain has been installed in Brisbane’s New Parallel Runway Project.
Supplied by Global Synthetics and installed by the Menard Bachy- SoilWicks Australia joint venture, the drainage wicks are pivotal in expediting the consolidation of the underlying waterlogged soils. Each wick drain is driven vertically into the soil to depths averaging 25 metres below ground and at a horizontal density of around 1 metre between wicks. The drainage wicks are the most efficient and cost effective method of treating the runway site.
