BMD Constructions awarded contract to construct 16 bridges for the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade

BMD Constructions has been awarded the contract to build bridges between Glenugie and Tyndale plus at Shark Creek as part of the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade on the New South Wales north coast. The package of work involves building 16 bridges at 10 locations including the construction of the bridge over Shark Creek which is more than 870 metres long. The BMD team will work closely with Roads and Maritime Services, its delivery partner Pacific Complete, and a number of other contractors who will be carrying out the main civil work, piling work, access roads and supply of precast concrete.   BMD Constructions is also delivering diversion roads which is an early work package for the Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade. This project involves building temporary and permanent diversion roads at six locations, as well as local road treatments, property demolition and utility relocation. The Australian and NSW governments are jointly funding the $4.36 billion Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade. The upgrade is expected to be completed by 2020. The award of the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade package builds on BMD Constructions’ strong bridge construction capability, with the team successfully undertaking a range of major road, highway interchange and bridge projects throughout Australia.
