$40 Million Bunbury Port Access Contract


Macmahon Holdings Limited awarded $40 million contract to construct the new Bunbury Port Access Road in Western Australia

Macmahon Holdings Limited has been awarded a $40 million contract to construct the new Bunbury Port Access Road in Western Australia.

The project, which is scheduled to commence early in 2009, involves the construction of 4.5 kilometres of a new dual lane access road, three new bridges and about 3 kilometres of work to widen existing roads.

The Bunbury Port Access Road Project is designed to improve road safety by reducing heavy vehicle traffic on the existing bypass road and reducing conflict between heavy vehicles, tourists and commuters.

Macmahon Chief Executive Nick Bowen says the contract is another significant project win for the group’s Western Australian construction team, which has worked with Main Roads Western Australia for more than 25 years.

"Through our recent work on the Mitchell Freeway and the current contract for the Reid Highway extension we have developed an excellent community relations process, which will ensure the needs of the many different stakeholders are taken into account," Bowen says.
