Client: BMD Constructions & Major Road Projects Victoria
Completed: January 2023
BMD & Major Road Projects Victoria completed an upgrade of Fitzsimons Lane in January 2023. The project included upgrades of four very busy intersections, new priority bus lanes, safer pedestrian crossing points and cycling lanes for active users. As this project was sensitive to community expectations, BMD worked with OmniGrip Direct to install OmniGrip CST – an industry-leading durable, safe and appealing coloured surface treatment compliant with VicRoads Section 431.
This project also delivered fantastic environmental benefits with over 23 tonnes of recycled glass re-purposed for the bus and bike lanes – the equivalent of 115,000 beer bottles.
