West Gate Tunnel

Location: Melbourne, Victoria

The West Gate Tunnel project provides for a new alternate route to the West Gate Bridge to be built. It provides a second river crossing which will reduce the city`s reliance on the West Gate bridge.

Tunnelling activities form a major part of this project. We were appointed to manage the marine risks on all the critical shipments for this project.

Pre-shipment risk analysis, reviews, etc. were carried out for all the critical items on the project, including its key item being the tunnel boring machines.

Marine loss control activities were carried out in ensuring the safe delivery of shipments to the construction site. Our involvement extended from the manufacturers’ premises to the construction site using our own local and international Marine warranty surveyors.
