Iconic Projects from ICL – Peninsula Link Freeway
The Peninsula Link Freeway is a 27 km freeway that connects the south end of EastLink to the north end of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway (that runs from Mt Martha to Rosebud), hence providing nearly 100 km of motorway with no traffic lights from Collingwood to Rosebud. The freeway opened in January 2013 and has since slashed travel times for commuters by up to 40 minutes at peak times.
Independent Cement and Lime, through our client Downer EDI contributed significantly to this development through the supply of our cement.
The cement supply included;
- 3,300 Tonne of ICL’s Ecoblend cement 65/25/10 (cement, slag, fly ash)
- 500 Tonne of Roadmaker 334 (30% cement, 30% slag, 40% Lime), and
- 700 Tonne of Roadmaker 262 (20% cement, 60% slag, 20% Lime)
Cement blends were used to generally reduce the moisture susceptibility of the soil, giving enhanced volume and strength stability under variable moisture conditions. The blended cements were also used to develop the interparticle bonds in the host material, endowing the material with tensile strength and high elastic modulus.
Independent Cement is a specialist supplier of cement and cement blended products to a wide variety of industries and major retail outlets throughout Victoria and New South Wales.Learn more
