CIMIC selected for $380m Queensland road project

CIMIC subsidiary CPB Contractors has been selected by Transurban Queensland as the preferred contractor to design and construct the US$380m Logan Enhancement project in the southeast of the state.

Transurban manages and develops urban toll road networks in Australia and the US.

The works include upgrading three interchanges, widening the Logan Motorway to six lanes from Mount Lindesay Highway to the Wembley Road ramp and widening the Gateway Extension Motorway from four to six lanes between Compton Road and the Logan Motorway.

The Logan Motorway and Gateway Extension Motorway are described by CIMIC as "vital transport links that connect Logan with Ipswich in the west and the Gold Coast in the south, as well as the Port of Brisbane, Brisbane Airport and Australia Trade Coast commercial development precincts in the north".

Adolfo Valderas, CIMIC’s chief executive, said: "The Logan Enhancement project is a modern and sustainable infrastructure solution that will ease congestion, improve travel times and enhance motorists’ safety on one of Queensland’s busiest motorways." 

Román Garrido, managing director of CPB Contractors, said: "Delivering new and upgraded transport infrastructure within live traffic conditions is a core capability for CPB Contractors, and we will be working closely with Transurban Queensland to ensure our design and construction methods achieve the project’s objectives.   

Construction is expected to commence in mid-2017 and be completed by 2019.
