Description

Northern expansion of the Latrobe Valleys’ Loy Yang Open Cut Mine (brown coal) and proximity to a planned bypass freeway resulted in the strategic placement of an overburden dump to facilitate a visual and acoustic buffer of mining activities. Beveridge Williams was engaged to complete the civil design within various buffer restraints to enable the placement of approximately 3 million cubic metres of overburden.
