Contract awarded for $400m Queensland motorway upgrade

The first stage of the upgrade of Ipswich Motorway in Queensland, Australia, is set to start following the award of a design and build contract.

The AU$400m (£235m) project contract had been won by Brisbane based Bielby Hull Albem Joint Venture. The team will now start detailed design of the upgrade, and will be on site to begin works later this year.

“I'm pleased to announce Stage 1 of the Ipswich Motorway upgrade between Rocklea and Darra is one step closer to construction,” said Queensland premier Annastaci Palaszczuk. “The Ipswich Motorway is currently a major source of frustration for more than 85,000 motorists who use this section of the motorway daily, including up to 12,000 trucks. This project will not only improve safety and travel times for motorists, it will support 470 direct jobs which is great news for local workers and business.”
