Improving local, regional and national travel networks
CPB Contractors is working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to deliver Stage 1 of the $497.3 million Mackay Ring Road project in Queensland.
Stage 1 of the Mackay Ring Road project is a quality, sustainable infrastructure solution that will enhance travel efficiency and safety for motorists, and serve as a vital upgrade to the national road network.
We are also focused on maximising opportunities for local employment and delivering a socially-inclusive procurement strategy to broaden the community benefits of this significant roads initiative.
Our strategy delivers innovative and cost-effective projects for our clients, strengthens regional economies and better connects communities.
Stage 1 works include:
- An 11.3km highway to divert traffic from the Bruce Highway at Stockroute Road (west of Mackay) to the Bald Hill Road intersection (north of Mackay);
- 13 bridge structures;
- Two underpasses for local traffic; and
- Two dual lane roundabouts.
The Mackay Ring Road project will reduce the frequency of heavy freight vehicles and hazardous loads travelling through the city centre, and significantly improve the operation of local, regional and national road networks.
Stage 1 construction is expected to commence in mid-2017 and be completed by late 2019.
