What You Can Expect from Geotechnical Drilling

With the right equipment and expert technical know-how, geotechnical drilling is a powerful and conclusive way to perform a site analysis, install instrumentation, sample soil, perform in-situ testing, and gain sediment samples for geological research using rock coring.

Geotechnical drilling is typically performed as part of the construction process before large buildings or oil rigs are erected. This level of investigation allows geotechnical drilling contractors to ensure that the subsurface conditions, like rock and soil, are the right for your project.

Without this level of analysis, uneven and shaky conditions can easily destabilise the foundation of buildings or rigs, causing injuries and even fatalities to construction crews. Geotechnical drilling services aim to minimise these problems prior to starting construction so that the scope, design, budget, and schedule of your project isn’t severely compromised.

Geotechnical drilling contractors are professional investigators who examine, discover and deliver representative samples to decision-makers for construction projects. These samples are derived from testing soil and bedrock consistency, providing accurate classification, and even measuring groundwater depth and its impact.

Geotechnical drilling prepares sites for the placement of foundations, caissons, and other structural supports. Geotechnical drilling contractors are usually trained engineers who can verify the correct positioning of the drilling equipment to avoid future delays and issues.

Geotechnical drilling involves the use of drilling rigs, which vary in size and capabilities. Some are massive structures used for offshore drilling, while others are compact enough that one person can move it manually. In addition, geotechnical drilling also involves the use of mobile drilling rigs that can be mounted on a truck, track or trailer.

Geotechnical drilling companies can also be hired to perform searches for mineral, oil and gas deposits, as well as other valuable earth materials. These might be for commercial projects, but they could also be for scientific research.

Coomera Connector’s Preferred Northern Route Confirmed

The preferred route for the new Coomera Connector’s northern section has been identified following an independent study of potential routes, with $1.5 billion in funding already secured for stage one of the project. The route is proposed to cross the Albert River east of Eagleby, connecting to the M1 and Logan Motorway at Loganholme.It was considered in comparison to six other alternative routes by independent traffic planners and environmental specialists.Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said the Coomera Connector would be critical to easing traffic congestion between the Gold Coast and Logan.“Thanks to our state’s strong management of the COVID-19 health and economic crises, more Australians are choosing Queensland as the place to live and invest in,” Mr Bailey said.“Even before COVID, communities in the northern Gold Coast were among the fastest growing parts of Australia.“The Coomera Connector is a major project in our $50 billion infrastructure guarantee to build better roads and support new jobs for Queenslanders.“It will become a key route for residents making local trips without having to get on the M1.“The Palaszczuk Government has worked with the Federal Government to lock in $1.5 billion to start building stage one between Nerang and Coomera, but we can’t lose momentum on planning for future stages.”Mr Bailey said independent specialists involved in the route assessment agreed the previously gazetted Coomera Connector alignment was the most suitable alignment.“We gave a commitment to the community to rigorously investigate six alternative alignments for the northern section of the Coomera Connector,” Mr Bailey said.“I thank the community members who put their time and effort into that process.“Key considerations for independent specialists were the impacts on communities, impacts on the environment, the proposed cost, and the ability to reduce M1 congestion.“The conclusion from their assessments was that the current Coomera Connector alignment had the least number of impacts on properties and homes and did not impact on the RAMSAR wetlands located north of the Logan River.”Mr Bailey said community proposals to connect the new road to Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road would impact more properties due to the need to expand Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road to six lanes in some sections, driving higher traffic volumes past three schools and increasing project costs.“Connecting to Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road was also found to not be as effective in reducing M1 congestion, compared to the gazetted alignment which provides a direct connection to the Logan and Pacific Motorway interchange at Loganholme.”Mr Bailey said all options for the Coomera Connector’s northern section were located within the Logan and Albert River catchments.“Concerns have been raised by some community members about the preferred route’s impact on the wetlands next to Eagleby.“To avoid those impacts, one of the alternatives put forward by the community was to build the new road further east, through the Gilberton and Alberton area.“Assessments found that option would impact a larger portion of more environmentally sensitive areas, including RAMSAR wetlands to the north of the Logan River and a Koala Priority Area.”Mr Bailey said the community would continue to be closely involved in planning for the future road connection.“Our focus over the next 18 months on the northern section of the Coomera Connector will be determining the staging plan for future works between Loganholme and Coomera,” Mr Bailey said.“When planning major roads, we always seek to design and construct them in an environmentally sensitive manner, in consultation with the local community.“The Smithfield Bypass that’s currently being built north of Cairns is a good example of that.“As part of that project, a new wetland habitat was created by excavating the site and using soil from the project to create bunds that could be planted with native flora, including water plants suitable for local bird life.“Our project team will look for opportunities like that to enhance the local environment around Eagleby, with the potential to include features like additional board walks around the wetlands to support bird watching and ecotourism.”Mr Bailey said a series of community information sessions would be held in the coming weeks to share details from the independent Coomera Connector route assessments.“We’ll hold at least four community information sessions at Beenleigh, Cornubia, Carbrook and Eagleby, as well as letterbox the local community to explain the findings of the independent route assessments,” Mr Bailey said.Background:The 45km Coomera Connector corridor between Loganholme and Nerang was formally confirmed in the Queensland Government Gazette on 15 March 2019.
