Transport for New South Wales has awarded Vinci’s Australian subsidiary Seymour Whyte two projects with a combined value of A$385m (€240m).

One sees the company building a 5km section of highway to bypass the town of Heatherbrae as part of the project to extend the M1 Pacific Motorway by 15km to address its missing link between Sydney and Brisbane.

The design and construct contract is targeting an ‘Excellent’ Infrastructure Sustainability Design and As-Constructed Ratings with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia and New Zealand.

In Western Sydney, Seymour Whyte will take part in the overall 6.5km upgrade of Mulgoa Road in an alliance with Turnbull Engineering.

Mulgoa Road carries 52,000 car trips a day connecting Penrith to Greater Sydney.

The works involve upgrading a section of Mulgoa Road to a six-lane divided road and creating priority public transport lanes.
