Laka Earthmoving Contractors Pty Ltd were awarded the contract for the upgrade of the Freeling Lagoons A & B for the Light Regional Council. The project involved the enlargement of both lagoons on compacted clay base, lining with HDPE liners as well as ancillary electrical and plumbing work to pump stations. The construction of perimeter lagoon access roads.

The project presented a range of challenges, which included a very limited space in which to operate machinery, the presence of overhead high voltage power lines, a high ground water table and a very wet winter and spring period.

Despite these considerable challenges we were able to work with Council and consulting engineers to solve problems and move the project forward. Our experienced plant operators were able to work in severe and adverse conditions and still meet all engineers test requirements.
