The Queensland division of Glascott Landscape & Civil was awarded the eastern end of the TransCity project, Legacy Way after having been commissioned for the initial stages of the work.

Glascott will deliver on this joint venture project with Brisbane based BMD, Italian company, Ghella, and Spanish company, Acciona.

Work on about 90% of the initial stages has already been completed by Glascott at the western end, the Moggill Road upgrade and the shared pathway at the Botanical Gardens Mt Cootha, comprising of installation of more than 37000 plants, 1242m³ of soil, 752m² of mulch and close to 5000m² of turf as well as more than 13500m² of eco-Blanket installed by Groundworks, creators of this ground-breaking erosion control and re-vegetation system.

Work on the western end and the Moggill Road upgrade section offered an opportunity for Glascott to showcase their versatile expertise and experience in delivering large infrastructure projects, not only in the softscape works, but also the installation of the concrete drainage Swales and the rock pitching to drain outlets.

Glascott also installed over 777m² of 3m wide concrete pathways, boulder retaining walls and fencing along the shared pathway, an extension of the cycle walkway from the western freeway connecting the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens.

Executing the landscaping project on a well-used road, which created a potentially hazardous environment, Glascott undertook traffic control and management at the site to ensure traffic flow was maintained and work could continue without incident.

Glascott has considerable expertise in this type of work having completed a number of large infrastructure projects including the Toombul section of the Airport Link Tunnel.

TransCity’s Project Engineer, Hunter Lang explains that they selected Glascott Landscape & Civil to undertake these works based on their experience on previous projects, and pricing.

Glascott’s QLD Manager, Brett Frostick said their team is now looking forward to completing the landmark tunnel that will serve the city of Brisbane.

The newly won section at the eastern end of Legacy Way is much larger than the initial work underway with numerous x-ground and large stock trees, close to 30000 plants, over 5000m³ of soil, 1200m³ of mulch, over 5000m² of turf, 500m² of eco-Blanket, irrigation, 500lm of concrete edging, and rock work.

Having recently commenced work on this section, Glascott will complete the project by early next year.
