At the time this was the biggest civil construction project in the country, linking highways 16 and 20 to complete the Western Ring Route.
RTL had 7 separate signage contracts over the duration of the project including static road signs - both ground mounted and overhead gantry mounted - changeable prism signs, internal wayfinding and safety signs, VMS mounting poles and alternative route signage around the suburbs – it was a pretty epic project to be involved in!
Our responsibilities included design, manufacture and installation of signage. Some of the locations required bespoke designs and some clever thinking to make the required signs fit in the desired locations. We had to come up with designs to incorporate changeable prism signs within a 12m long static gantry mounted sign. Other tricky parts included a mounting structure for a sign on a bridge that would not inhibit pedestrians, signs to fit around LED VMS signs and custom fixings for signs mounted to barriers, walls and retaining structures. As well as some specialist sign face designs too of course!
There were a lot of challenges during the project and our team collaborated with the Well Connect Project team to come up with workable, affordable solutions that could be manufactured and installed within the required timeframes.
Definitely one for the RTL history books!
