About this Project

The M80 Upgrade will widen the freeway, widen on and off ramps and install a new freeway management system along 38km of road from Laverton North to Greensborough. The project will increase capacity, improve safety and create more reliable travel times for the 165,000 motorists who use this road each day.

AsClear abrasive blasted and coated 360 lineal metres of DN350 pipe with an ultra-high build epoxy (Denso Protal), then over-coated with a fibreglass wrap (Fibertec) for the Horizontal Drill String (HDD). AsClear were one of the first companies in Australia to coat pipe with this dual layer system and the coating performed extremely well through the bore.
