Nuflow Pipe Relining | Pipe Repair Specialists | Kerners Road Case Study

KERNERS RD DEVIATION

Work Performed

Utilising our Blueline technology, Nuflow installed sectional liners in multiple lengths of concrete stormwater pipes ranging from 375mm to 900mm diameter pipes. Pipes located under the recently completed $20 million Kerners Road deviation project in Yamanto were severely damaged during installation resulting in multiple stormwater lines requiring rehabilitation.

The problem

After an investigation of the stormwater pipes, it was discovered there were multiple problems with the various lines ranging in diameters from 375mm to 900mm. This included severe circumferential cracks at joints, this had occurred from the pipes being installed incorrectly.

Results

Nuflow were able to rehabilitate all lines with no disruption to surfaces or essential services, including traffic that utilised the arterial route.

Alternatives

An alternative to relining would have been to excavate the area and replace the pipes. This would have been very expensive, disruptive and labour intensive due to the depth of the problems and number of pipes that would have required replacing. In addition, these works would have caused major inconvenience due to the amount of traffic that utilises the road.
