Default Wivenhoe Dam Upgrade Construction Time-lapse

Here are some construction time-lapse videos from the Wivenhoe Dam upgrade which occured between 2003 and 2005. The main aim of the project was to flood proof the dam to protect the main spillway during a 1 in 100,000 year flood event along with the protection of ten critical bridges downstream. Another benefit was the temporary increase in flood storage.

Other upgrades were the information centre on the western side of the dam wall, the entrance to Cormorant Bay and other legacy works in the region.

Wivenhoe Dam has two purposes being to provide flood mitigation to protect Brisbane and is the main water store to South East Queensland.

Additional info can be found here at Seqwater, Leighton Contractors and Wikipedia.

All time-lapse was captured using a Canon PowerShot S45 tethered to a notebook. Shooting interval general varied from 5 - 7 seconds with the odd one at larger intervals.


Here is a sample video with a few clips


Earthworks Activities

Various big boys toys were used during the excavation of the spillway chute including dozers, trucks, excavators, graders and a road profiling or milling machine.

Downstream Chute Earthworks


I shall include more over time.

We were 'flood-proofing' a dam which also had a highway running over the dam wall.

I think you linked the embedded video wrong

(It only requires the video ID within the tags, not the whole url)

Edit: Cool video though, pity it isnt a little bit longer with some funky piano solo over the top

I have about 50 sequences. Some are pretty boring but some are good. I was going to go through them and dump out the better ones at 720 and upload them if there was enough interest.

What I found was funny was I'd show some back in our office and there's engineers with years of experience going 'wow... so that's how they lay kerb or install guardrail'

Ta. I was wondering about that. I just figured that it was our interweb playing up but I put the link there just in case. Fixed

Maybe some Benny Hill music?

How are yours not working? I always add some tags but never tested them, just assumed that it worked.

Yeah, I was pretty lucky to be onsite for about a year. I have also done some others on a few other projects and some turned out pretty good. Might see if I can post them too.

And I have just started a long term capture of the Audi dealership next door to us in the Valley as they are building a new showroom.

A Canon PowerShot S45. It was tethered to a notebook. It's also the camera that I have dusted off to do the Audi joint next door. These days I have two (one's works) S80's and an S90 that I have started using CHDK with.

Intervals vary from 5 seconds (that's the minimum that RemoteCapture would allow) up to 7 or 10 seconds. I use Adobe Premiere Pro to compile them.

Okay, here's the first video. Unless anyone has any issues with this, I'll embed videos in subsequent posts and keep the original post updated with links.

I like them.. Really should get into some construction time lapses given I work in the industry ( in the IT field though so not fully )

It will be a good test and I'm bummed that I haven't had a chance to head out there to have a look. If it fails, I never worked on it

The other day I thought I should continue to upload videos. Thanks for the reminder too

Draughtsman. Started in the alliance office in Sep 2003 for three weeks work and walked off the job just on two years later. I spent about 14 months onsite for detail design / construction drawings, RFI's (request for information) and DSN's (designer site notes). While I was out there I photographed and time-lapse construction activities. I walked around site every day I could to see how things were going and how stuff was built.

We even had one of the wages guys parachute into the chute on what he thought was his last day. His contract was extended and we grabbed his footage. Looked wicked.
