An Australian alliance formed of Cimic Group subsidiary CPB Contractors, engineer Aurecon, and GHD will work with Australia’s Department of Infrastructure and Transport on a duplication works project in South Australia.
The Fleurieu Connections Alliance will reduce congestion and improve road safety and economic growth in the Southern Fleurieu region.
Some 10km of Main South Road will be duplicated along with 5km of Victor Harbour Road.
CPB Contractors has said in a press release the contract is worth US$220m to the company.
Juan Santamaria, Cimic Group’s chief executive, 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 minimising impacts on the community.”
Construction on the project is due to start in early 2022 and be completed in 2024.
