Concrete Footpaths in Pinjarra

Concrete Footings in Pinjarra

There are two essential parts of building foundations during construction. The first is the soil below the foundation and the second being the type of footing or slabs supported by the soil. Footings are usually made of concrete with reinforcing bars that have been poured into an excavated trench. Footings are essential, especially in areas that have troublesome soils.

Three types of concrete foundations

Below are three common types of concrete foundations:

  1. T-shaped. This is a traditional method of foundation that supports a structure in an area of which the ground freezes. The footing will be placed below a specific frost line followed by the walls being added on top then the slab is placed. Here, the footing will be wider than the wall, which will provide extra support at the base of the created foundation.
  2. Slab-on-grade foundation. A foundation used for areas where the ground doesn't freeze. In this method, the slab will be thicker at the edges than the interior, forming an integral footing. This will then reinforce the rods, strengthening the thickened edge.
  3. Frost protected. This method is reserved only for heated structures. Here, the concrete will be poured monolithically (poured all at one time) in areas that are subject to frost. Unlike the three pours for T-shaped foundation, frost-protected method pours concrete in only one operation.

$448M Mitchell Freeway Upgrade Creates 2,200 Jobs

A $448 million upgrade to Mitchell Freeway is now underway, with three separate projects undergoing construction and more than 2,200 local jobs set to be supported.When completed, the three projects are expected to help bust congestion and transform travel to and from Perth’s booming northern suburbs.The $232 million Mitchell Freeway Extension project will extend the freeway north from Hester Avenue to Romeo Road and is anticipated to create more than 1,200 local jobs. Fast tracked to boost the economy through COVID-19, the project is being delivered by the Mitchell Extension Joint Venture, a consortium of BMD Construction and Georgiou Group.The project will include new freeway access points at Hester Avenue, Lukin Drive and Romeo Road, an extension of Romeo Road from Wanneroo Road to Marmion Avenue, duplication of Wanneroo Road from Romeo Road to Trian Road and new shared paths on the western side of the freeway. Additional funding recently announced by the Federal Government means the interchange at Butler Boulevard can also be added to the scope. On top of this, funding has also been negotiated to enable the duplication of Wanneroo Road from south of Romeo Road to Dunstan Road – this will result in a continuous dual carriageway on Wanneroo Road all the way north to Taronga Place in Carabooda.Work on the $140 million Smart Freeway project has also commenced and will see the popular technology rolled out at nine entry ramps southbound from Hester Avenue to Warwick Road.The project is anticipated to create and support more than 500 direct and indirect jobs.The third project will see the Mitchell Freeway southbound widened to three lanes between Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, along with upgrades to the Principal Shared Path for cyclists and pedestrians.This project also includes construction of a new lane from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue, an extra lane from Hepburn Avenue entry ramp to Warwick Road exit ramp, new safety barriers and new or upgraded shared paths between Ocean Reef Road to Warwick Station.All three projects are jointly funded by the Federal Government and Western Australian Government, and are on track to be completed late 2023.Western Australian Premier, Mark McGowan, said the $448 million transformation would provide a massive boost to the economy while also transforming the northern suburbs.“We know the northern suburbs are booming with the Western Australian Planning Commission estimating by 2031, the population of the region will have grown by 39 per cent to 395,000 and to 740,000 by 2050,” Mr McGowan said.“It’s important we plan and deliver the infrastructure needed for the future today, which is why we are investing millions in transport upgrades for our northern suburbs to reduce traffic congestion, improve safety and slash travel times.“Combined with other major transport projects underway, including the METRONET Yanchep Rail extension, these projects are creating and supporting thousands of direct and indirect jobs while providing a welcome boost to our economy.”Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said the Federal Government was pleased to partner with the Western Australian Government to deliver these key projects.“Perth’s north-west metropolitan region is growing rapidly, with unprecedented levels of investment boosting the local economy and driving population growth and demand for an effective transport network,” Mr Fletcher said.“This significant upgrade of the Mitchell Freeway will increase connectivity, improve journey reliability and help alleviate local road capacity issues for commuters.”Western Australian Transport Minister, Rita Saffioti, said the projects form part of an extensive upgrade to road, rail and cycling infrastructure works currently underway in Perth’s northern corridor. “When complete, the Mitchell Freeway Extension Project will deliver time savings of up to 15 minutes northbound from Narrows Bridge to Alkimos during the afternoon peak period,” Ms Saffioti said.“The widening of the Mitchell Freeway southbound from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue will improve journey times by seven minutes for drivers, while also increasing the freeway’s southbound capacity by up to 50 per cent, leading to shorter journeys for 51,000 motorists daily.“We have been successful in including a new interchange at Butler Boulevard and duplicating Wanneroo Road in this project, which will mean less rat runs through the northern suburbs and a smoother journey.“The northern suburbs are seeing unprecedented development with the extension of Stephenson Avenue and expansion of the rail network through the METRONET Yanchep Rail Extension.”
