Scot MacDonald, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast has announced that Seymour Whyte Constructions has been awarded the contract for the upgrade of the Wyong Road and Pacific Highway intersection at Tuggerah.
The NSW Government had allowed $84 million for the intersection’s upgrade, which will involve replacing the roundabout with traffic lights - improving traffic flow and safety.
Work is due to start in early 2016, and the aim of the project is to reduce congestion along both Wyong Road and the Pacific Highway, while providing more reliable travel times for the 55,000 people who use the intersection each day.
A new bridge will be built for eastbound traffic next to the existing railway over-bridge and Wyong Road will also be widened, providing three lanes on each side. Mr MacDonald also said that the current pedestrian underpass will be extended as well.
Roads and Maritime Services began early work this year, including road surface repairs, utility relocation, removal of vegetation, installation of storm water drainage, new guttering and kerb.
Seymour Whyte Constructions won the tender over two other pre-qualified contractors who were invited to submit tenders in April. We assist Seymour Whyte with their tender applications regularly, helping them to find high quality plant hire suppliers. Seymours are coming to the end of a large project in the Central Coast Area and will likely be able to leverage their suppliers and infrastructure into this new project.
