    The Civil Contractors Federation South Australia (CCF SA) has forecast a robust future for the sector as they welcome the State Government’s commitment to a record $17.9 billion in today’s budget for infrastructure projects that will deliver jobs and improvements to the lives of all South Australians.

    Federation Chief Executive, Ms Rebecca Pickering said it was now time to get the jobs moving and maintain the momentum in the State with a slate of projects that have been on the table for a while, and are now funded with a four-year forecast of investment.

    “We are ready, across a range of industries in our sector, and we have the expertise right here in SA to take these budget commitments, along with unlocked Federal support, to deliver tremendous value to our community,” she said.

    She said the fact the government was making the largest commitment to infrastructure spending in the State’s history was evidence of how important building, maintaining and developing infrastructure was to the state’s economy and the fabric of life across South Australia.

    Ms Pickering pointed to the large number of road upgrades and projects earmarked in this budget as evidence of the inadequate focus on roads in the past causing a backlog, that in some cases requires complete reconstruction due to years of poor maintenance.

    “Our priority remains to push both Federal and State Governments to maintain this significant infrastructure with appropriate levels of annual funding.

    “Although 2021-2022 road maintenance increases in some areas, we are still some way from the $1 billion per annum required to maintain our roads,” she said.

    “We are eagerly awaiting the finer detail now that the Government has boosted confidence and shown they are listening to our recommendations as we advocate for current and future projects that help make South Australia one of the greatest places in the world to live,” Ms Pickering said.

    CCF SA will support the pipeline of dozens of projects, as thousands of jobs are created, by helping collaborate across the many essential trades and businesses that will be required to deliver these projects.

    “We are excited that the local civil industry, including road constructors, pipelayers, traffic management, civil suppliers, quarries, resource recovery centres, mobile plant, transport operators, to name just a few, and their workers can start gearing up now for the mountain of work coming their way.

    Next week, 22 June 2021, we will see the release of the South Australian State budget. We are excited about the 2021/22 infrastructure commitments and how they will translate into project starts. Over the last several months, we gathered your feedback and developed your ‘Digging Deep for South Australia’ document; highlights include:

    Civil Workforce and Apprentices

    “The State Government has a once in a generation opportunity to create a sustainable South Australian civil construction workforce. This requires meaningful funding and creative reform of skill development, training approaches and worker engagement supporting the whole of population activation.

    “CCF SA seeks State Government support for youth entry into the civil industry via a fully funded Civil ‘Flexible Industry Pathway’ in Schools (Civil Industry Cadetships via Stackable VET). To date, the civil industry has not had a funded pathway in schools, it does not attract Training Guarantee for SACE Students (TGSS) funding or new 2022 Flexible Industry Pathways funding which has been recently released. A billion dollar industry, providing secure, long-term and lucrative civil careers, and today, it stands with a new innovative cadetship in schools but with no funding.

    “The civil industry is a critical workforce. It builds essential public structures and services – roads, bridges, pipelaying, traffic, tunnels, foundations – for our South Australian community. Unlike other trades, there is a unique opportunity for direct Department of Infrastructure hosting of civil apprentices via industry backed Group Training Organisations. This direct hosting not only eases financial and commercial pressures on small and large civil businesses working to deliver state infrastructure projects, it also supports improved apprenticeship outcomes.  

    “Increased civil industry focused training incentives for workers and civil businesses. With SA’s tunnel project set to commence, funding is also needed to complete a civil industry workforce capacity and capability report to identify training needs.

    “Civil Apprenticeships should receive fair and equitable distribution of funding in comparison to other traditional trades, but employers of Civil Apprentices receive $4k less than other traditional trades.”

    Infrastructure Project Planning, Accountabilities and Small/Medium Enterprise (SME) Opportunities

    “CCF SA seeks a budget that supports the commencement of projects (both Federal and State funded) already committed/announced and that these projects are awarded to industry in a manner which benefits whole of industry across all Tiers – smallest to the largest.

    “Achieve a sustainable future works programme, supported by industry led robust bipartisan planning, including new and maintenance projects. Including early identification and prioritisation of projects including regular State submissions to Infrastructure Australia.

    “Independent monitoring and reporting on Government Facilities Manager Partners, including industry engagement, with a primary focus on greater small business participation and opportunity.

    “Obtain consistent and adequate annual budget and forward estimate allowance to maintain roads, services, bridges, and other public infrastructure. South Australia investment to be above the Australian average infrastructure investment per capita.

    “Fund Industry undertakings to support the determination of South Australian infrastructure priorities – including the facilitation of direct submissions to Infrastructure Australia.

    “State Government develops a policy that is very deliberately designed to ensure government work is made available to local SME businesses. Further, Government agencies are compelled to comply with such a policy. A % of works allocated to SMEs.”

    Civil Contractors Federation SA (CCF SA) commends the $3.2bn of Federal funding towards local infrastructure projects announced last night, with the focus now turning to our State Government who are responsible for the delivery of these projects into South Australia.

    Federation Chief Executive, Ms Rebecca Pickering said there were a number of wins in the Federal budget along with some stark omissions especially in regards to South Australia’s 5 to 10 year project trajectory.

    “Disappointingly there appears to be no upcoming allocation for the Major Project Business Case Fund for SA. This funding supports Business Case development which in turn determines future South Australian projects. Without this commitment we have serious concerns for South Australia’s project forecast and pipeline in the near future.

    “On the flipside it was terrific to see a Federal commitment to strengthen pathway services for 5,000 women to start non-traditional trades. Given that our industry aims to broaden its inclusivity and diversity commitments, this funding will assist us in reaching these goals,” Pickering said.

    Other wins included the extension of the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements Program.

    “Along with Civil Apprenticeships and Careers Ltd we are pleased with this extension - we just hope civil apprentices are included, unlike other funding programs that historically only service traditional trades.

    “This segues into new civil businesses being developed through self-employment. The Self Employment Federal funding commitment is exciting, as one of our new strategies seeks to encourage and support new civil businesses entering the South Australian market. We will seek to maximise this opportunity for our local community and those wanting to start a new civil construction business in this state,” Pickering said.

    Pickering noted that of the announced $3.2bn for major infrastructure projects, including the next part of the North-South Corridor, only $130.8m is allocated in the 2021/22 budget and that in regards to the Road Investment Component, there were significant increases, which is good news, but there is nearly $1B in road repair work currently outstanding.

    “Investing in civil infrastructure projects generates jobs, boosts business confidence and underpins economic growth and our primary focus is seeing that these projects start and are completed in suitable time frames.

    “Greater transparency is needed across all of our local infrastructure projects, from start to finish, to ensure the best outcomes for everybody. This includes planning studies, design, business case development, maintenance, procurement and project starts.”

    Recently Civil Train SA met with the Project Manager, Traffic Services and Road and Marine Services from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT), to discuss the extension of our current Deed as an approved training organisation. Civil Train SA would like to clarify some confusion with the current training requirements as they may differ to what you may have previously experienced in South Australia. The key areas often queried is the renewal process of gaining re-accreditation; please see below for information sought.

    • All South Australian Work Zone Traffic Management (WZTM) cards are valid for three years from the date of successful completion of training. Cards produced in more recent years display a ‘Renewal Date’. A course must be conducted prior to the renewal date expiring; if your card has expired, you will need to requalify by completing a full WZTM training course – the full two-day WZMT course.

    Unfortunately there is no leeway with course bookings, you cannot book a refresher course after your expiry date; it needs to be completed prior i.e. in South Australia, there is no leeway on vehicle licence expiry. If you drive at 1 minute past midnight the day after it expires, you will get fined if caught.

    • ·         If your renewal date has not passed, you will be required to attend a WZTM Refresher course to gain your next three-year accreditation.

    ·         INTERSTATE QUALIFICATIONS – a bridging course is required for people moving from other regulatory jurisdictions to enable them to be accredited within South Australia and to ensure they are compliant with the different workzone traffic management rules and conditions applied across South Australia. To complete this bridging course the learner must show they have successfully completed the units listed below and that their WZTM card is current. It should be noted training providers may have specific entry requirements to the one-day refresher including current industry experience. If a learner is unable to meet the requirements they will need to complete a full WZTM training course.

    • o   RIIWHS205E – Control Traffic With a Stop/Slow Bat, and
    • o   RIIWHS302E – Implement Traffic Management Plan

    Currently DIT is reviewing the Interstate Bridging Course delivery method and are researching the possibility of online processes instead of a face-to-face course requirement. The bridging course will be designed to cover the subtle differences in legislation and signing in South Australia.

    Please be vigilant of your team’s traffic WZTM renewal dates and if you need any further assistance in clarifying your requirements or obtaining your renewal please contact our Civil Train SA team for more information

    About the Heysen Tunnels

    Named after artist and benefactor Sir Hans Heysen, the Heysen Tunnels were constructed as part of the $151 million Adelaide to Crafers Highway Project.

    These tunnels carry the South Eastern Freeway (part of the National Highway network linking Adelaide to Melbourne and signed as National Highway M1) under Eagle On The Hill in the Mount Lofty Ranges in South Australia.

    In 1998, the tunnels were excavated through a steep hill using a 50 tonne SW200 tunnelling machine, which was a first for South Australia. Approximately 100,000 cubic metres of rock was excavated from each 500 metre long tunnel.

    Costing a total of $151 million, it was funded by the federal and state governments.

    The tunnels were opened on Sunday, 5 March 2000, with each constructed to carry three lanes of traffic.

    The maximum height of vehicles permitted in the tunnels is 5.3 metres, the same as the Crafers and Mt Osmond interchanges. Laser height detectors monitor traffic to provide warnings to drivers before they attempt to enter the tunnel.

    As of 2018, more than 50,000 vehicles pass through the tunnels daily.

    In June 2020, it was announced that as part of the Marshall Government’s $1 billion economic stimulus package, $15 million has been allocated to refit and upgrade safety for the Heysen Tunnel. At the time of the announcement, the completion date for the project would be in late 2021.

    One of South Australia’s most influential industry lobby groups has called for greater transparency and collaboration between industry, government and the peak infrastructure agency to ensure the State maximises future opportunities to have major construction projects listed for priority funding in State and Federal Budgets.

    The appeal was made today by the Civil Contractors Federation (SA) and followed the release this morning by the Federal Infrastructure Australia (IA) group, of its latest priority list of projects and initiatives around the country recommended for future Budget funding considerations.

    Federation Chief Executive, Ms Rebecca Pickering, said the CCF (SA) welcomed the recognition by Infrastructure Australia in its 2021 list of the largest number of new proposals for South Australia in the list’s five-year history.

    The CCF (SA) made a direct submission to Infrastructure Australia and says it is p0leased a number of projects nominated by it have now been included in the latest Priority List.

    “In parallel with that, however, the CCF (SA) is a strong advocate for transparent future collaboration with industry, State Government and the independent advisory body, Infrastructure SA, to ensure new South Australian infrastructure projects are continually identified, submitted and shared with every South Australian,” Ms Pickering said.

    “This will reverse the trend of recent years where SA projects received insufficient attention by IA.

    “In order for today’s six identified SA initiatives to be transformative for South Australia, government agencies must engage with industry immediately to plan the delivery of these projects and those already listed as part of the record $16.8 billion committed in principle by government to SA’s future infrastructure needs.

    “Today’s announcement of State Government $100m in road upgrades to commence immediately, including sections of the Horrocks, Riddoch, Eyre and Augusta Highways, is positive.

    “However, a reliable and steady project release to market is critical during these unparalleled times. SA’s civil industry is mobilising to support current and future needs of our great state and it needs reliable projects to be released to maintain momentum and support growth.”

    Ms Pickering said it was pleasing that SA’s road maintenance backlog (estimated to be worth at least $700m+) has now been recognised as an IA High Priority Initiative.

    “The Federation has been advocating for this for several years and future Budget allocations could see a large improvement in SA’s road safety, while creating jobs in our State and building our local economy,” Ms Pickering said.

    “Earthmovers, road constructors, pipelayers, road maintenance, traffic control, mobile plant operators and other civil business are digging deep for South Australia to deliver these projects, and the industry’s uptake of new Civil Apprenticeships is evidence of this.

    “We celebrate today’s good news but promises need to translate into tangible, well planned projects. The CCF (SA) is committed to work with all stakeholders to ensure new projects and opportunities are continually presented to funding bodies.”

    An experienced executive in the construction sector and industry lobbying, Ms Rebecca Pickering, has been appointed the new Chief Executive Officer of influential South Australian lobby group, the Civil Contractors Federation (SA).

    Ms Pickering’s appointment follows an extensive national search, following the resignation, after nearly nine years, of its well respected CEO, Mr Phil Sutherland.

    Ms Pickering comes to the position with considerable experience in both the construction sector and industry association work. This has included several years with the Master Builders Association in SA, and more recently the CCF (SA) as Director Apprenticeships, Group Training, and Industry Employment.

    The President of the CCF (SA), Mr Paul Davison, said today that the CCF (SA) Board had every confidence that under Rebecca’s leadership, the Federation will continue to strongly represent the interests of the State’s civil contractors and deliver services of benefit to its membership.

    “Pleasingly, we had a large field of high-quality applicants, but Ms Pickering was the stand-out candidate who was able to set out a very clear pathway forward,” Mr Davison said.

    “We are confident that under her leadership, the CCF (SA) will maintain our position as the peak body representing civil contractors.

    “Given Rebecca’s unique skills set and experience, we will see our very significant training operation, Civil Train, and our interest in Apprentices through our Group Training Organisation, continue to grow and develop.     

    “Over the years, the CCF (SA) has achieved many successes. Appointing a woman to be the CCF (SA) CEO sends a valuable message to our industry about the contribution women can make at all levels of SA’s civil construction industry.”

    For clients in South Australia, today’s news of a full lockdown has come as a shock. For businesses, questions arise as to what this means for employees.

    Note: the below information is general in nature and relates solely to the ‘default’ stand down provisions set out in the Fair Work Act 2009. Employees who are covered by a contract of employment or enterprise agreement that provides differently may have different entitlements.

    An employer may stand down an employee in circumstances where they are not able to be usefully employed – relevantly – due to causes beyond the employer’s control. A government enforced total lockdown affecting a business comfortably meets the test of a cause beyond the employer’s control. However, before making the decision to stand a person down, consideration must be given to whether or not the person can be “usefully employed”. This is an area that requires some consideration.

    There is limited case law on what is meant by ‘usefully employed’ although the general rule of thumb is that the benefit received from the work must be more than the cost of paying the person to do so. Similarly, an employer is not required to substantially reorganise their workplace to create useful work. In most cases, this assessment will be obvious. For example, the closure of building sites makes it unlikely that on site workers would be able to be usefully employed. However, where work from home is available, consideration needs to be given to whether and, if so, how much, valuable work a person can perform. An employee required to process payroll may be able to be usefully employed to do this but if no work is performed, the following week may not be able to be usefully employed. A case by case assessment is required for unilateral stand down.

    Employees are taken to not be stood down when they are on a period of authorised leave or other absence. It is generally accepted that an employee should be able to access accrued annual leave, long service leave or rostered days off unless there is good reason for them not to. Note that subject to specific provisions in awards/enterprise agreements or contracts of employment, an employee cannot be ‘forced’ to take a period of leave – it must be by agreement. Specific advice should be sought before issuing any direction to take leave or any refusal to grant a period of annual leave. Access to sick leave is generally not available although this is complicated, and specific advice should be sought.

    Where there is an agreement between employees and employers (eg. an agreed stand down, or period of leave), many of the complexities outlined above can be overcome or minimised. As a result, it is strongly recommended that clients aim to work cooperatively with staff to make suitable arrangements, especially for the next 6 day period. For the most part, employees will have similar concerns such as child minding etc. which they will need to accommodate. These arrangements should be recorded in writing, such as a brief email. Although there is the ability to reach agreement employers should bear in mind that this is not ‘carte blanche’ and employment laws still apply. Accordingly, advice should be sought in relation to any specific agreement.

    Employees who are stood down are not entitled to be paid, but will continue to accrue leave entitlements as usual. Employers who engage daily hire employees may consider terminating daily hire engagements although specific advice should be sought before taking this step as it is a termination of employment.

    It is hoped that this is the end of the process but no-one can predict the future and should lockdown continue to affect your business after that time, it is also strongly recommended that employers revisit these arrangements regularly – perhaps weekly, or sooner if circumstances change.

    Note that for employers who are currently on Jobkeeper, an employer would also need to pay the Jobkeeper amount. It is also noted that the effect of this lockdown may also entitle employers to Jobkeeper amounts and it is recommended that businesses discuss this with their accountant.

    Disclaimer: the information above is general in nature only and specific advice should be sought in relation to a business’ specific circumstances. It is noted that awards, enterprise agreements and contracts of employment can impact on the above matters.

    Today Treasurer Rob Lucas delivered the 2020/21 State Budget, and CCF SA believes the Treasurer has struck an appropriate balance between a government being fiscally responsible and providing the necessary stimulus to resuscitate the economy during and following the fires and the pandemic, while also providing long term sustainable growth. 

    This budget makes some in roads into a large road maintenance backlog and upgrading road networks that are very much out of date.  This also includes money for the states bridges, many of which are over a hundred years old and in urgent need of repair. 

    It's also pleasing to see the budget acknowledges the importance of our regions and coastal precincts including jetties and road maintenance.

    Small business, VET and tradies also receive additional incentives which will see a positive difference to the industry.

    To view the overview of the budget, click here

    The South Australian Government has also announced that the hybrid option is the preferred way to deliver the T2D Project, which will see a combination of tunnels, lowered and ground-level motorways, as well as overpasses / underpasses at key intersections to successfully complete the free-flowing transport route.

    Upgrades to one of Adelaide’s most renowned retail routes, a century-old waste dump site and one of the city’s most heavily trafficked rail intersections have dominated the winners’ list at the 2020 South Australian Earth Awards.

    The honours represent excellence in civil construction across the State and were achieved this year despite the unprecedented challenges for the sector imposed by COVID restrictions on contractors’ movements and supply chain disruptions.

    The Awards were announced at a ceremony in Adelaide last night (Friday 16 Oct).

    Civil Contractors Federation (South Australia) Chief Executive, Mr Phil Sutherland, said the outperformance evident across the project winners is testimony to the skillsets retained within the sector and now on offer to drive Australia and South Australia’s post-COVID economic resurgence.

    “At every political level, shovel-ready infrastructure works are being seen as a cornerstone for the pace and scope at which regional and state economies recover from the lingering impacts of COVID,” Mr Sutherland said.

    “In SA, where the CCF (SA) has lobbied hard for higher State and Federal funding for priority projects, we have an opportunity to employ hundreds of additional people over the next 12-18 months.

    “The Earth Awards mirror how good this sector is in SA – now it is time to capitalise on the richness of this immediately available resource within our broad civil construction community.”

    This year’s winners, and a brief project description of each, are as follows:

    and Transport, McConnell

    Dowell, Mott Macdonald,

    Arup   

    Mangrove Street Rail Upgrade - Salisbury

    The Mangrove St Rail Upgrade at Salisbury upgraded exhausted road-pavement, poor drainage and an at-risk section of railway track traversing through Mangrove St. The City of Salisbury, Downer and WGA went through a vigorous design process to come up with an innovative and sustainable solution that met all design objectives and budgetary requirements. The pavement design differed from traditional construction methods, building up the road level by utilising the existing pavement as a base and constructing on-top new kerb and gutter and asphalt layers enhanced with pavement reinforcing technologies. The rail design consisted of a re-alignment of the track to increase the safety of the bend through the level crossing.

    King William Road Upgrade - Unley

    The transformation of the iconic King William Road, saw BMD preserve the precinct’s unique village identity while delivering a flexible and functional streetscape. The popular retail and restaurant precinct has more than 240 stakeholders including 109 traders, and hosts up to 5,000 visitors, and close to 15,000 vehicles within the precinct each day. Strategies to minimise inconvenience were integral to both planning and delivery. BMD constructed the project in four stages, involving complex service relocations, intersection upgrade works, new segment paver traffic lanes with deep lift asphalt base courses, new roll kerbs and segmental paver shared use areas, landscaping, street furniture, electrical works and smart lighting.

    Katarapko Floodplain Inundation Measures - Riverland

    The South Australian Riverland Floodplains Integrated Infrastructure Program (SARFIIP) is a Commonwealth-funded program consisting of a number of priority construction projects involving infrastructure at the Pike and Katarapko floodplains between Loxton and Renmark in the Riverland. The projects were managed by the South Australian Department for Environment and Water (DEW) and delivered in partnership with SA Water, with Fulton Hogan as lead contractor. The works improved the area’s ecological health by maintaining a more natural pattern of flooding frequency, facilitating targeted management of surface water for environmental outcomes, reducing floodplain salinisation and managing salinity impacts on the River.

    Port River Rail Bridge - Ethelton

    The Department for Infrastructure and Transport engaged Coleman Rail to undertake the remediation of 144 square concrete piles supporting the Port River Rail Bridge originally constructed in 1910 and adjacent Bower Road at Ethelton. This was a challenging and complex project requiring works over water and a sensitive dolphin sanctuary and under the live Outer Harbor rail line with no disruption to train services. Works included inspection and verification of the required repairs, water blasting of the piles, engineering of a suitable remediation system that would provide the piles with an additional 50 years of design life, and development of a suitable system to access the worksite, which required working over and in a tidal waterway.

    Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation – Oaklands Park

    The Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation project grade separated the road and rail networks to improve operation and safety of the traffic and rail network and public transport and passenger access. The project was designed and constructed by the Public Transport Projects Alliance, PTPA, comprising McConnell Dowell, Arup, Mott MacDonald and Department for Infrastructure and Transport. Project delivery within a compressed 16 month timeframe incorporated an offline construction methodology minimising road and rail disruption and showcasing the successful integration of urban greening, people connectivity and sustainability within a typically hard engineered infrastructure project, for a safer and more inviting station precinct.

    Hamilton Hill - Woodforde

    The project transformed a 100-year-old waste dump into a new master planned community in Adelaide’s foothills. McMahon Services in partnership with environmental and geotechnical consultants, developed an achievable and realistic construction management plan and a detailed profile and map of all the waste across the site. These thorough and upfront investigations allowed McMahon Services to develop programs, staging and methodologies that mitigated or managed onsite risks, and allowed for a delivery schedule that effectively eliminated double-handling of materials. The Company crushed, sorted and segregated 500,000 tonnes in waste streams within the old dump site so that they could be repurposed and reused as geotechnically suitable materials to allow the bulk earthworks and reshaping of Hamilton Hill to make it suitable for residential construction.
