Salt Development Sandpit 2004

2004 – Salt Development was won. This project had many interesting variables from the start. 1 million tonnes of sand had to be pumped 7.5kms to a huge hole at Salt to fill. This was to fill in a huge crater with around 700,000m3 of sand with very tight deadlines. By pumping the sand from a sandpit in the Duranbah Hills with 3 pump stations saved around 40,000 truck movements along local roads which would have caused some damage. Many innovative ideas came to life by Brian Turner from the Salt Development project.
