The works comprised of the installation of new / 150 dia. Cat A HD uPVC conduits from Bradshaw Road Casuarina to Lee Point Road, Lyons. Boring under Trower Road and Henbury Avenue and installation of cable joining pits.

The total length of conduit route was 1,900 m on the verge of some of the busiest roads in the Northern Suburbs of Darwin.

Traffic management and pedestrian control were of high importance as conduits were installed on Trower Road and Henbury Ave adjacent to Dripstone High School.

Boring under Trower Road at Bradshaw Terrace was a challenging exercise as the ground was extremely hard and the close proximity to Telstra cables, water mains, sewage services, optical fibre, austar cabling and high voltage cables.
