South Australia / Victoria (Border)

About This Project

In February 2019, GREENHILL was engaged by Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA) and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to review the current quarantine station arrangements at Yamba.

GREENHILL was the original designer for the Heavy Vehicle Inspection and Fruit Fly Station when the site was first redeveloped in 2011. The upgrades then included a new rest area, a new weigh station and an upgraded quarantine facility. 

As the first point of entry into South Australia from the eastern states it was important to have an impressive yet effective gateway to the State. 

The most recent upgrades were required due to the increased number of vehicle inspections, traffic congestion, queuing and staff occupational safety.  

  • The following alterations were undertaken;
  • Alterations to vehicle access west of the station
  • Removing the existing heavy vehicle egress and installing a new egress for heavy and light vehicles 
  • Installing a new ingress for light vehicles for access to a newly created inspection area
  • Additional truck parking to the south, line marking modifications, barrier installation and redesign of existing stormwater retention basin 

GREENHILL provided the detailed drawings, a traffic impact statement, design report, DPTI checklists and certificates for the detailed design approval and a traffic management plan for construction staging.
