Acciona in a joint venture with Ferrovial has been selected as the preferred bidder to design and construct the AUD250M ($189.8M) Clarence River Crossing in Australia.
The project will include the construction of a 1.5km four-lane bridge in the Australian town of Harwood, with a vertical clearance above the river of at least 30m.
Two years ago, the joint venture won the Pacific Highway Upgrade project between Warrell Creek and Nambucca Heads — a 19.5km section. The work involved the construction of a bridge over the River Nambucca in Macksville, two bridges across Warrell Creek and two intersections.
Both projects are part of the Pacific Highway Upgrade plan to improve and extend the highway that connects Sydney with Brisbane, financed by the governments of Australia and New South Wales.
