BGER was commissioned by Pilbara Minerals to design the upgrade of a 40-kilometre section of Pippingarra Road in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The objective of the upgrade works was to facilitate the passage of RAV10 vehicles, allowing Pilbara Minerals to transport lithium and tantalum product from its Pilgangoora Project (approximately 120km south of Port Hedland) to Port Hedland. BGER’s design of the horizontal alignment and vertical grade lines minimised earthworks volumes, and the vertical alignment along floodways minimised cut and fill volumes.
