Ferrovial and Gamuda Australia to build $1.5bn Coffs Harbour Bypass in Australia


Ferrovial, in a consortium with Gamuda Australia, has won a contract to construct the Coffs Harbour Bypass in New South Wales of Australia.

The contract carries a reference value of $1.53bn (A$ 2.2bn).

Ferrovial secured the contract through its construction subsidiary.

The contract will see construction of 14km of road and improving the four-lane divided motorway passing from south of the Englands Road roundabout to Sapphire in the north.

Three new tunnels and a service road linking Solitary Islands Way with James Small Drive and the current Pacific Highway are also included in the work.

The work is set to begin in December this year.

Expected to cut down travel times and boost safety for road users, the Coffs Harbour Bypass forms the last leg of the Pacific Highway, which runs from Newcastle suburb Hexham to the Queensland state border..

Earlier this month, Webber, the US subsidiary of Ferrovial, secured a contract to broaden a 15km section of the Dallas North Tollway in Texas, US.

The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) chose Webber for this contract worth $127m (about €119m).

The work is set to start in September this year, and is estimated to take 40 months to complete.

It will boost the road’s capacity and help reduce congestion in north Dallas, while enhancing connections to Collin, Denton and Grayson counties.

Webber will be responsible to broaden the current toll road from three lanes to four in each direction.

The work will include widening 22 bridges, upgrading overpasses and constructing new ramps.
