$164 million in contracts has been awarded to CIMIC Group’s CPB Contractors. CPB will execute upgrades to two major regional highway projects in Queensland and Victoria.
“Through CPB Contractors, the CIMIC Group has a long track record of delivering high-quality road projects, CIMIC CEO Juan Santamaria said.
"These highway upgrades will provide significant safety and economic benefits for regional communities," he added.
Mackay Northern Access
Located in Mackay, Queensland, the Mackay Northern Access upgrade will be funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments. The project will focus on removing congestion on the Bruce Highway.
The road will be more sustainable to cope with increases in traffic volumes and population growth. CIMIC says this project will improve traffic efficiency by creating additional capacity north of Mackay.
"CPB Contractors continues to play a key role in delivering vital infrastructure for regional communities across Australia," CPB Managing Director Diego Zumaquero said.
"We’re committed to working closely with local communities and the governments of Victoria and Queensland to deliver these important upgrades safely and efficiently," he told the market.
The project is scheduled to be completed by 2022.
South Gippsland Highway
The South Gippsland Highway upgrade is located between Meeniyan and Koonwarra in Victoria.
The works will involve an extensive highway realignment to improve driver safety and provide more reliable journeys to Victorians.
Funded by the Australian and Victorian Governments, the project is scheduled to be completed by 2022.
