Background

The Peninsula Link is a toll-free 27 kilometre road link between EastLink at Carrum Downs and the Mornington Peninsula freeway at Mount Martha. The project was a Public Private Partnership (PPP) managed by the Linking Melbourne Authority (formerly SEITA) and delivered by private sector partner Southern Way.

Beveridge Williams was engaged by construction company Abigroup (now part of Lendlease) in 2012 for surveying services due to our survey expertise and previous work for Eastlink.

Challenge

Abigroup wasn’t clear on their obligations in terms of cadastral boundary plans and needed to supply the State with particular lease documentation. The sheer size of the project and volume of work required was a significant challenge.

Our expert survey team were able to advise and carry out these specialised services. Beveridge Williams has a clear understanding of the processes involved in obtaining Office of Surveyor General approval of plans. With more than 50 years providing surveying services, we have developed a broad range of knowledge and skills and a reputation for outstanding service.

Solution

The timeline for our part of the project was approximately two years. As we have the largest surveying team in Victoria we were able to provide all the necessary staff resources to meet the timelines. Late plans could have caused the project to overrun with potential liquidated damages of up to $250,000 per day, so time was critical. Having all plans completed on time and accurately was the ultimate indicator of our success.

Outcome

The Peninsula Link opened on 18 January 2013. Beveridge Williams continues to work on these complex, large infrastructure projects and we are renowned for our specialised skills and knowledge.
