Seymour Whyte Wins $59 million Narellan Road Upgrade Stage B Contract.


$59m Narellan Road Upgrade Stage B to go to Seymour Whyte.

Seymour Whyte Limited recently announced that Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) have awarded the company the contract for the $59m upgrade of Narellan Road (Stage B).

iSeekplant helps Seymour Whyte source plant rates and high quality suppliers for the majority of their tenders across New South Wales & Queensland. The Narellan Rd project was tendered through iSeekplant by a number of contractors during the bid process, and went to a handful of highly suitable local plant hire companies to price.

Narellan Rd Stage 1, which is currently nearing completion of construction, is being undertaken by BMD - who also tendered the project using iSeekplant and also priced the live plant requirements through the system when they won the project - meaning real long-term work opportunities for our members.  Narellan Road will be one of the many major civil project examples of how is changing the way plant is hired in the civil construction industry.

The win, which comes off the back of Seymours being appointed to a raft of meaty roadworks jobs recently such as the Coomera Interchange in Queensland -  expands Seymour Whyte’s transport infrastructure portfolio in New South Wales and demonstrates the company’s position as one of Roads and Maritime Services contractors of choice.

Acting Managing Director and CEO David Wilson said that Seymour Whyte has a stable and fully established presence in NSW. He also said the company has experienced significant growth and won repeat business in the NSW market by “…consistently delivering projects successfully, safely, and on time.”

The contract is in addition to a number of Roads and Maritime Services projects which are currently in delivery in Maitland and on the Central Coast and Great Western highways, along with other utility and airport projects for clients Sydney Water and Sydney Airport.

Mr Wilson said that the company is encouraged by the number of active tenders within NSW and other states and will continue to pursue opportunities for utilities and combined transport infrastructure businesses.

Stage B of the Narellan Road upgrade includes:

  • 6km of road and bridge construction
  • Earthworks
  • Widenings
  • Drainage
  • Pavements
  • Associated road infrastructure

Construction will begin this year, and the contract is expected to be completed by mid-2017.
