Dingley Bypass


In late 2011, EPH began contract work for the now-complete $156m Dingley Bypass project. The project covered a 6.4km stretch of road linking Warrigal Road at Moorabbin and Westall Road at Dingley Village. Fulton Hogan hired a fleet of EPH trucks, enabling the transport of material between the quarry and project site. EPH was responsible for sourcing and supplying over 200,000m3 of suitable re-use material to the project. In support of supply operations, EPH was heavily involved in loading and carting re-use material from the Boral quarry at Lysterfield. EPH also assisted in providing extra cost savings to the project through sourcing re-use options for the excess of topsoil at the end of the project.

South Morang Rail


From August 2010 through to early 2012, EPH were involved in the major $650m South Morang Rail Electrification Project with John Holland in Victoria. In addition to supplying a fleet of machinery on hire, EPH were the primary cartage contractor for all material disposal and supply. The major South Morang Rail project, which opened in May 2012, saw improved safety and access for public and road transport in areas around railway developments in South Morang and Plenty Valley. Typically running in excess of 100 trucks a day, this $650m project saw EPH dedicate a full-time representative to coordinate and monitor both the client’s and subcontractor’s requirements throughout such a critical operation. This project saw EPH utilise their reliable Imarda 360 GPS system to assist in managing productivity and enhancing efficiency.

Nagambie Bypass


In 2010, EPH was involved in major work with AbiGroup for the 13.5km main freeway section of the $188m Nagambie Bypass. Eastern Plant Hire supplied a fleet of quality trucks and equipment sets to the project. In addition to supplying hired trucks and equipment, EPH also undertook the stripping and blending of material from the GVR quarry to meet VicRoads Type A and Type B specifications, which produced over 600,000 tonnes worth of material. In an industry first, Eastern Plant Hire purchased the only certifiable portable weighbridge available in Victoria, which allowed EPH to guarantee that every load that was loaded, weighed and delivered was done in a safe and legal manner, with not a single load leaving site overloaded.

M80 Ring Road Upgrade

Our Work On The M80 Ring Road Upgrade

In December 2009, we mobilised a fleet of trucks for the major $647m section upgrade of the M80 Ring Road project in Victoria. There we undertook extensive contract work, from the Calder Freeway to Sydney Rd, with the Tulla Sydney Alliance. Over the course of the upgrades, EPH became the primary supplier for trucks to the $647m project. We also established a committed network of local material reuse, disposal and supply options to ensure the lowest environmental impact and best outcome for the client and project. Furthermore, EPH subcontractors were used in a variety of jobs over the duration of the project; ranging from detailed to bulk earthworks, to road profiling, quarry material delivery, general on-site cartage and many more.
