POWERPLANT appointed to VicRoads Panel

We are very pleased to have recently been appointed to the VicRoads Panel of Suppliers, allowing us to better support VicRoads to procure design, project management and construction services for electrical asset relocation and public lighting works.

Relocation of utilities can delay roadworks, and our appointment to the Panel gives VicRoads access to more construction options, making it easier for construction to be arranged and for roadworks to proceed smoothly and in a timely manner. Our contribution can include assisting with:

  • Design and relocation of electricity poles – we were engaged for the Thompson Road upgrade which included 10km of asset relocation which straddled AusNet Services and United Energy networks.
  • Design and relocation of public lighting – we have completed works for the City Link Upgrade, Tullamarine Freeway Upgrade, M80 Ring Road Upgrade, Monash Freeway Upgrade – Stage 1.
  • Preparing concept designs and procurement strategies for major electrical asset relocations – we have been a trusted advisor to the state on many major infrastructure projects including Suburban Roads Upgrades, North East Link and Mordialloc Bypass.

We are proud to be recognised as a key provider of these services in Victoria to help VicRoads deliver projects successfully. We believe there is no one better placed than POWERPLANT to help the Victorian Government deliver electrical asset relocation or public lighting works.


New freeway to connect Clayton to Frankston

We have been engaged to complete the electrical design and project management for the new 9km Mordialloc Bypass, connecting the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road to the Dingley Bypass, creating what will be a continuous freeway from Frankston to Clayton.

We will be assisting McConnell Dowell/Decmil Joint Venture with major asset relocations to allow for:

  • bridges over Springvale, Governor, Lower Dandenong and Centre Dandenong roads, along with new freeway entry and exit ramps.
  • bridges over Old Dandenong Road and sensitive waterway areas.
  • connecting the freeway to Dingley Bypass with traffic lights.
  • upgrading the existing interchange at Thames Promenade, Chelsea, with the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, including freeway entry and exit ramps.

The work is expected to run from the beginning of 2019 with completion in 2021.
