Road & Maritime Services (RMS, now known as Transport NSW) approached ModularWalls to design and construct a road noise barrier along Captain Cook Drive, Caringbah, NSW.
The purpose of the noise wall was to protect residents from the ever-increasing traffic from residential developments within Shark Park and heightened semi-trailer activity to Kurnell and the desalination plant.
This project demanded high consultation and synergy between public services and the local community to reach the final proposed solution. Designing custom-engineered foundation solutions around underground high-pressure gas, water and sewer services required multiple meetings with Sydney Water, Jemena Gas and ModularWalls engineers.
Additional group consultations with the RMS and the local communities spanned over two years to ensure the proposed design was in the best interests of all parties involved. The solution was a 2.4m high EnduroMax road noise barrier, with 1200mm of clear acrylic on top to allow light to pass through while blocking traffic noise.
The EnduroMax noise wall panel is an ultra-resilient, high-performance modular noise wall panel specifically designed for the extreme conditions associated with road, rail and civil infrastructure environments. EnduroMax meets or exceeds multiple road noise barrier specifications, including NSW’s RMS R271 (Design & Construction of Noise Walls), QLD’s TMR MRTS15 (Noise Fences) and WA’s MRWA Spec 904 (Noise Walls). In addition, the EnduroMax offers 80% carbon reduction project-wide compared to a precast concrete alternative. Therefore, EnduroMax is the clear choice for enviro-conscious organisations.
