Our RoleSMEC was engaged to develop a study of urban infrastructure, which comprised:
- Production of innovative solutions for surface water drainage for the flat low lying areas
- Field testing of existing pavement
- Traffic surveys including intersections, accidents, and network flow patterns; verification of the topographic grid control benchmarks
- Examination of existing service networks including water supply, electricity and telecommunications
- Production of all designs and drawings
- Recommendations for future development of the capital's infrastructure
The capital of Tonga, Nuku'alofa, had suffered from severe traffic congestion and a poor surface water drainage system, due to an inadequate urban road infrastructure.
This project comprised a detailed study of existing urban infrastructure in order to prepare a comprehensive report for future development.
Project scope of work included:
- Concept design urban drainage
- Detailed designs for 20km of urban roads including pavement, intersections, traffic management systems and underground drainage
- Detailed plans of existing public services including water supply, electricity supply and the telecom.
- Technical Area:
- Ministry of Works
