During all of our larger projects, Webby’s continues to provide outstanding service to our smaller customers proving no project is too large or small for the team at Webby’s.
We take pride in the recognition from our clients and peers that Webby’s offers the best cable hauling and installation services in the industry. Next time you have a cable installation project, get a Webby’s qualified professional contractor on board and see the difference in cost and quality for yourself.
May 2015 saw Webby’s Pty Ltd complete one of our largest and most rewarding contracts being the supply, installation, termination, testing and commissioning of fibre optics for the Legacy Way Tunnel project in Brisbane. This involved the supply and installation of over 150 kilometres of cable in tight time frames and in some very difficult sections of the tunnel, working around other contractors and a maze of other cables and equipment was a challenge we thoroughly enjoyed. One install in particular was over 6500m in length with no joints allowed for and literally starting outside of the eastern end and finishing outside on the western end, no easy task but well within the abilities of the team of installers handpicked specifically for this project by the management team at Webby’s. It is humbling to look back through the projects we have completed over the past 13 years and exciting to look forward at what projects lay ahead of us, one thing you can be assured of is each and every one will be tackled with the same professionalism and ethics as the previous no matter the size.
Webby’s along with PSG Electric are the installers of just over 75 Kilometres of HV and LV power cables for the expansion project underway at the Port Of Brisbane. This project will see Brisbane become a major player in the import and export fields within Australia and across the globe. The system being built on site is utilising the latest in vehicle and container freight identification along with automation upgrades that will see the completed project as one of the most advanced and efficient systems on the planet.
Webby’s were one of the very first companies in Queensland to be signed as a contractor to build Australia’s largest project, the National Broadband Network. Along with two major Principal contractors this will see fibre rolled out to the door or every Australian residence by 2020. The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an upgrade to our existing telecommunications network. It provides the infrastructure for affordable, high-speed internet and phone access for all Australians, regardless of where you live. With incredible wholesale speeds of up to 100Mbps for downloads and 40Mbps for uploads, the NBN offers high-speed internet even if you live a long way from the exchange or have multiple devices connected.
Webby’s was responsible for a large part of the fibre recovery and installation for the latest road building projects in Queensland. Airport Link, Clem 7 and now Legacy way are all projects that Webby’s have been involved with from some small rolls to major fibre builds.
The Airport Link
Is a tunnelled, motorway grade, toll road in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It connects the Brisbane central business district and the Clem Jones Tunnel to the East-West Arterial Road which leads to the Brisbane Airport. It was built in conjunction with the Windsor to Kedron section of the Northern Busway in approximately the same corridor.
The Airport Link and busway project involves 15km of tunnelling including the road (6.7km of twin tunnels), busway tunnels and connecting ramps, as well as 25 bridges and result in over 7km of new road. The Airport Link is Australia’s longest road tunnel.
The Clem 7
Brisbane’s Clem Jones Tunnel (CLEM7) is a faster, safer, more reliable choice for significant time savings in cross-city travel.
The 6.8km tolled motorway links five major Brisbane roads, including the Pacific Motorway, Ipswich Road, Lutwyche Road, Inner City Bypass and Shafston Avenue at Kangaroo Point.
The CLEM7 is operated by Queensland tollway company, RiverCity Motorway Group. Tolling is managed by FLOW Tolling, which ensures tolls are collected electronically through either a tag fitted inside motorists’ vehicles, or through number plate recognition technology.
The CLEM7 forms the first part of Brisbane’s new M7 motorway, to be completed in 2012 when the Airport Link tunnel opens. The M7 will provide a much-needed motorway link between Brisbane’s southern suburbs to the Airport and the fast-growing northern suburbs.
S.R.W.P. stands for the Southern Regional Water Pipeline and Webby’s where the successful contractor awarded the project to build from the Ipswich region to the Gold Coast. This project consisted of the supply and installation of over 110,000m of Fibre cable and the splicing, testing and commissioning of the completed network. We are now working with Linkwater and Sage Automation to complete the next stage from Molendinar to Tweed Heads, another 35,000m. This project involved very difficult terrain and very tight time frames due to the water crisis brought on by drought but we where more then up to the challenge and our staff thoroughly enjoyed getting out of the city for a few months!
Leighton Bilfinger Burger Joint Venture is the group mainly responsible for the South East Freeway and Woolloongabba sections of the new City Bypass Tunnels. Webby’s have been awarded the relocation and subsequent new build of the fibre optic cables within this area as well as the Copper Cable works on the North side at Kedron with Visionstream. This project requires flexibility due to the difficult traffic delay situations and limited work hours. The team at Webby’s is very proud to be associated with the construction of the largest road works project in QLD in recent times and look forward to being one group responsible for relieving Brisbane ever growing congestion.
Gateway Bridge 2
Webby’s have been largely involved with the construction to date of the new Gateway Bridge, from fibre for the Variable Message Signs through to copper for the street lighting we have all bases covered. This project is well underway and is looking like it will be completed much earlier then the construction deadline.
Gatton University has just gone through major renovations and new construction of buildings to take it into the next decade of education. Webby’s along with SDF Electrical where awarded the project to construct the HV, LV and fibre components in both new and existing conduits. We worked closely with many other contractors on site to deliver the project ahead of schedule and within budget.
Brisbane City Works
Webby’s Pty Ltd started working with Brisbane City Works as a cable installer at the Stafford depot in September 2002 under CQO17-2002/2003. During this time we have been involved in many large projects including the installation of Fibre Optics and Copper for the Waterworks Road upgrade, Kingsford Smith Drive Fibre Optic link and the Gympie Road Fibre Optic link for Brisbane City Works and Road Tec.
Webby’s installed the underground power cables in Melbourne Street, East Brisbane as part of the suburban improvement program for the Queensland State Government and Brisbane City Council. The project required Webby’s to collaborate with Bulimba Electrical who where doing the fit out. In a busy Café area like Melbourne Street, work hours were restricted and parking for work vehicles was near impossible. Webby’s completed the project on-time and within budget, much to the approval of all the local businesses.
RoadTek North Coast
Earlier this year we completed a build from the Bruce Highway into Mooloolaba of fibre cable for the North Coast region of RoadTek. With the success of this project Webby’s are now in negotiations to continue this run further north to Noosa. This project is expected to commence late 2009, this will deliver a system of Camera’s and Variable Message Signs and can only lead to a safer and more comfortable trip from Mooloolaba to Noosa.
Webby’s worked with both QMC and United Group on the new Substation constructed at Brendale on Brisbane’s North. Some 4 kilometers of HV and LV cables where hauled in both conduits and cable trenches and in some very difficult areas. This work proved to be very rewarding also as it allowed us to work with some great guys and to learn some new skills while being hands on.
Shand Street Cable Relocation
Working with Visionstream and LBBJV in late 2008 we where involved in the installation and then removal of over 55 kilometers of cable on the Southern Side of the Storey bridge in Shand street. This allowed for the road construction and tunnel entrance for another of Brisbane’s new tunnel projects. These projects are particularly rewarding as the work that we complete today will be there for generations to come.
CCTV Logan involving the installation of Multi Mode Fibre Cable for security cameras is another project that we have been involved with, involving the linking of security buildings in suburban Logan to the main Logan Council Building. This project involved underground hauling as well as internal hauling up three levels; Webby’s was also involved in the initial consultancy on the best way to achieve this in the most cost effective way.
Data Center Fibre Optic Project
The Data Center Fibre Optic project totaling 36 kilometers of 96 Core Fibre from the Brisbane CBD out via Annerley, across to Mt Gravatt and return to the city was one of the more challenging projects that Webby’s has been involved with, but gratifying none the less. Time constraints meant that working hours needed to be flexible to allow night work and often weekends were required, done with no change to original costing and no disruption of the rollout.
Webby’s completed a fibre optic link across the Brisbane River from the Fortitude Valley to South Brisbane via the Storey Bridge as part of the Brisbane City Works data project. Webby’s was involved in the design and planning of the project as sensitivity needed to be given to the Storey Bridge’s heritage status. The decision was to install the 2200 meters of fibre optic cable in one piece through the hand rail so as would not be visible and would also not require any new construction on the bridge. The Webby’s team was given three days to complete the link due to the urgency of the project. Webby’s completed the project in two days, well ahead of schedule.
Traffic Signals and the installation of their relevant cables have been an activity that Brisbane City Works has relied on their own staff to install for a very long time now. Webby’s have installed the cable for a number of intersections around Brisbane over the past two years as well as the power cables for the directory signs erected around Lang Park and the Gabba. Feed back on our installations has been very positive and we offer this service as a back up to BCW when workload restricts the time frame of completion.
Webby’s recently worked with Brisbane City Works installing 96 Core fibre in the recent upgrade of Waterworks Road from Red Hill to The Gap to provide links for traffic controls, cameras and new digital bus stops. Our team also installed power cables for some intersection upgrades and light upgrades.
Webby’s worked with Brisbane City Works and Energex to install the 240LV and 11KV power cables on Days Road, The Grange. Webby’s teamed up with Brisbane City Works and Energex jointers to complete the project. This proved to be an excellent exercise in cooperation and coordination as each team member had the chance to witness the skill and expertise of the other crews. Although one of the smallest projects undertaken by Webby’s it proved to be one of the most rewarding.
In 2004, Brisbane City Works and Road Tec worked together to run a fibre from the Emergency centre on Gympie Road to a termination point at Webster Road on the northside of Brisbane. As one of the busiest roads in Brisbane, the Gympie Road project was sure to encounter problems. The requirement was for the Webby’s crew to work nights on restricted hours to meet a two week deadline including time taken for blockage repairs and splicing. Webby’s was engaged from the design phase through to the installation to ensure the project ran smoothly.
Webby’s commenced the work on a Sunday afternoon and worked split-shifts to complete the project within five days, including loops at all intersections and safely overcoming some very precarious set up positions! All work was undertaken with assistance from Traffic Control Services ensuring that crew safety was not compromised.
