Contracts awarded for 118 new bridges

Posted On July 24, 2017

Contracts have been awarded to construct 118 out of the 166 bridges being built as part of the Woolgoolga to Ballina section of the Pacific Highway upgrade.

The following contractors were announced for the project:

  • Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd will build bridges at 20 locations between Glenugie and Tucabia
  • BMD Construction will build bridges at nine locations between Tucabia and Tyndale plus the new bridge across Shark Creek
  • Bielby Hull Albem will build bridges at 19 locations between Maclean and Iluka Road, along with the contract to build bridges at 12 locations between Trustrums Hill and Broadwater

BGC Contracting Pty Ltd has also been awarded a contract to undertake major works on the Tyndale to Maclean section of the Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade, which is about 13 kilometres in length.

New South Wales Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Melinda Pavey said new bridges were being built at 109 locations between Woolgoolga and Ballina, along with new or replacement creek crossings, underpasses and overpasses.

“Bridge building work has been contracted separately to other works in order to speed up delivery of the upgrade, which remains on track for completion by 2020. I'm pleased to see a range of experienced companies selected to deliver this latest package of bridges,” Mrs Pavey said.

Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the contract awards would continue as the Australian and New South Wales governments continue to invest in the project.

“Almost 2,300 people are now working on Pacific Highway projects between Port Macquarie and Ballina, providing a substantial boost to the north coast economy,” Mr Hogan said.
