CIMIC Group’s CPB Contractors has been selected by the South Australian Government, as part of the Fleurieu Connections Alliance with the Department of Infrastructure and Transport, Aurecon and GHD, to deliver duplication works on the Main South Road and the Victor Harbor Road in South Australia.
The Alliance contract will generate revenue to CPB Contractors of approximately $314 million.
The duplication works are funded by the Federal and South Australian Governments and will reduce traffic congestion, improve road safety and connectivity, and support economic growth in the Southern Fleurieu region.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to deliver these important projects in South Australia aimed at reducing travel times and increasing safety for the local community and visitors to the Southern Fleurieu region. CPB Contractors will deliver the works with a strong focus on safety, quality, the environment and on minimizing impacts on the local community.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “We are currently delivering the Port Wakefield to Port Augusta Alliance in collaboration with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport, including works on the Copper Coast, Augusta and Port Wakefield Highways and the Joy Baluch AM Bridge. We’ll apply this experience to efficiently deliver these duplication works and maximise economic opportunities for South Australian people and businesses.”
The Main South Road duplication involves duplicating approximately ten kilometres from south of Griffiths Road, Seaford to Aldinga. The Victor Harbor Road duplication involves duplicating approximately five kilometres between Main South Road, Old Noarlunga and Main Road, McLaren Vale.
Construction will start in early 2022 and is scheduled for completion in 2024.
