Commencing in 2016, Northlink WA was a long-term roadwork project providing an essential state-of-the-art transport link between Morley and Muchea in Perth’s northern metropolitan area. This free-flowing route links to Gateway WA and services regional traffic movement to industrial and commercial areas including Perth Airport, Perth CBD, Malaga, and Kewdale, while reducing travel times, congestion, and driver frustration. It provides significant productivity benefits to our economy, motorists, industry, and the local community.

In December 2017 BUSS was engaged by Monford Group to complete joint sealant works to the concrete panels at the west roundabout area of the corner of Morley Drive and Tonkin Highway. The panels, not designed to be flexible, had cracked due to concrete movement; the location and severity of the cracks were determined by an engineering report. BUSS’ work scope included the installation of ports/packers/flanges, injection of the cracks with repair resin, removal of ports and grinding clean the repair area.
