GORDON CREEK GRS ARCH INSTALLATION
- Engineering & Construction
Peace River Coal
Landmark was retained to construct a 12 m, GRS supported arch over Gordon Creek in Tumbler Ridge, BC. The arch was chosen as the most economical option for the design vehicle, a 1,200,000 pound shovel. The typical haul design was for a two lane crossing supporting 850,000 pound haul trucks. To comply with mining regulations, this structure was built to 3 times the width of the typical vehicle. The final road width, between barricades, was 20 meters with the running surface approximately 14 meters above the creek.
Another successful project done in collaboration with Terratech Consulting Ltd.
