Olympic Hwy & Railway Cased Crossing

Project: Olympic Hwy & Railway Cased Crossing
Client: Riverina Water County Council
Carrier Pipe: DN450 DICL
Spacer Model: HDX 90

Kwik-ZIP provided casing spacers to Riverina Water County Council – through our local distributor Reece Civil – for use on a cased crossing under the Olympic Hwy near Wagga Wagga, NSW.

The project required 70m of DN450 DICL pipe to be installed inside a 700mm steel sleeve under the Olympic Hwy and adjacent Main South Rail line.

kwik-ZIP model HDX 90 spacers were installed at 1.5m intervals prior to the annulus being grouted.

Kwik-ZIP’s unique design enables the HDX spacers to be used on all pipe materials and diameters of 100mm and above.

Each HDX spacer is fitted with Grip-Pads to prevents spacer movement during the pipe installation. A screwdriver is all that is required to complete their installation.

Kwik-ZIP’s spacers have no metal parts and are made from Kwik-ZIP’s engineered thermoplastic blend – a high-grade thermoplastic that is flexible, extremely tough and has a low coefficient of friction.

These properties enable contractors to provide a quick and easy installation whilst protecting their client’s underground assets.

Kwik-ZIP HDX Spacers are approved by WSAA to meet Product Specification PS-324 Casing Spacers.

“kwik-Zip spacers were easy to use and pipe slid through with ease the only tool needed was a screwdriver ” – Stuart Rose : Works Supervisor, Riverina Water.
