Fostering local jobs
Rail Projects Victoria, delivering the Gippsland Line Upgrade including the replacement of the Avon River Bridge in Stratford, are growing local jobs in the process.
OnePlan Land Development Group were brought in to survey the land around the bridge, ensuring that new boundaries were established for an area that changes often with the weather, namely floods.
As a result of this project, OnePlan were able to educate their young team and develop their skills, with one apprentice using the experience to work towards completing a land surveying license. The business can also look into employing more people and purchasing extra equipment, expanding their works.
By relying on expert local knowledge, the project can be completed faster and include local people, inspiring the Gippsland workforce.
