Cimic adds $276m to Australian contract

10 May 17 Renegotiations on the Roe 8 freight link contract have resulted in a Cimic-led alliance being awarded AU$276m (£157m) of new work.

Cimic subsidiary CPB Contractors, with its alliance partners, will deliver three new projects for Main Roads Western Australia following the renegotiation. CPB’s alliance partners are Georgiou Group, WA Limestone, GHD, Aecom and BG&E. The contract had been announced in October (link opens in new tab).

CPB Contractors managing director Román Garrido said: “The new projects are significant in that they will enhance Perth’s road network operations in the northern, eastern and southern suburbs of Perth, as well as create important opportunities for the participation of local workers and businesses.”

he three new projects included in the Roe 8 renegotiation include connecting Murdoch Drive to Kwinana Freeway and Roe Highway to provide greater access to the Fiona Stanley Hospital and Murdoch Activity Centre; upgrading Wanneroo Road to a dual carriageway between Joondalup Drive and Flynn Drive; and upgrading Armadale Road to a dual carriageway between Tapper Road and Anstey Road.

The alliance team will also collaboratively manage the rehabilitation of the cleared Roe 8 site in Coolbellup.

Construction on the first of the three projects – the Murdoch Drive connection – is expected to begin almost immediately. Works on the Wanneroo Road and Armadale Road dual carriageway upgrades are scheduled to start in the 2017 – 2018 financial year.
