Tiger Brennan Drive Overpass Project – Darwin, NT

As Darwin grows, the team at fission has been supporting the Territory’s investment in critical infrastructure, assisting local contractor Sitzler on the $127m Tiger Brennan Driver Overpass Project. Designed to improve safety for 20,000 daily vehicle users, pedestrians and cyclists, when complete the project will enable the continuous flow of traffic, improving travel times and connections for freight transport.

fission’s Jarrod McHugh outlined the support our team has been providing, “ We have been working with our clients and stakeholders for 12 months on the Tiger Brennan Drive Overpass Project. Our work commenced with the delivery of estimating and planning support services as part of the ECI process, achieving successful completion of the ECI phase in late 2022. On the back of a newly established positive and collaborative relationship with Sitzler, we have continued supporting the project into its delivery phase.”

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing estimating support during the design phase and planning support throughout the construction phase, planner Clarence Lau has recently spent a week on-site working together with Sitzler’s construction team. The site visit has been productive, seeing first-hand the progress made since the submission of ECI and discussing any upcoming major construction challenges.

“It was fantastic to head to Darwin to see the progress being made on this vital infrastructure project,” said Clarence. “The team have recently completed their first major traffic switch, closing the northern leg to Berrimah Rd at Tiger Brennan Drive intersection. This has effectively opened up the area enabling the construction of the overpass to commence.”

“As the design phase is nearing completion, the focus is shifting towards procurement and delivery of construction activities. With the wet season now behind us, the next 6 months will be critical to the project as we aim to deliver much of the critical construction activities during the dry season. As the team deliver the works, we will ensure that our robust planning and project control methodologies will continue to support the project through detailed forecasting and scheduling insights that will facilitate timely decision-making and on-site action,” said Clarence.
