The South Australian government has appointed CPB to deliver the next stage of the Augusta Highway Duplication, from Port Wakefield to Lochiel. The contract will generate revenue of approximately AU$132 million to CPB Contractors and is to be delivered under the Port Wakefield to Port Augusta Alliance with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport, Aurecon Australasia and GHD.
The project duplicates the existing Augusta Highway with a new two-lane carriageway, and intersection/junction treatments, between the intersection of the Port Wakefield Highway, Copper Coast Highway and Augusta Highway, and the township of Lochiel. Work will start in 2022 and is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
BHP has picked CPB for the structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation package for the project at Nelson Point, Port Hedland, in the Pilbara region. CPB Contractors managing director Jason Spears said: “This project builds on CPB Contractors’ substantial experience in delivering resources infrastructure. We are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with BHP, to deliver another important resources project in the Pilbara.”
The project involves delivering both greenfield and brownfield works. Work will begin this year and are due to be completed in 2023.
