Minister inspects progress at Bringelly Road Upgrade

BMD Constructions hosted Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, Duncan Gay, at the Bringelly Road Upgrade – Stage 1 project site yesterday where he inspected construction progress. Since Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) awarded BMD Constructions the contract to construct Stage 1, between Camden Valley Way, Leppington to King Street, Rossmore earlier in 2015 the project team has made significant progress on site. Mr Gay was provided a site tour, pointing out the new road alignment between Camden Valley Way and Sydney Water’s Upper Canal that is now evident to see with all clearing and drainage works completed. The Bringelly Road Upgrade – Stage 1 is the flagship project of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan (WSIP) that will see the Australian and NSW governments jointly fund more than $3.6 billion of road projects for Western Sydney. Mr Gay’s visit follows Prime Minister Tony Abbott conducting the official sod turning to mark the start of works at the site in January this year. At the time, Mr Abbot said, “I can’t think of a better way to start 2015 than standing shoulder to shoulder with Mike Baird announcing this very important infrastructure upgrade for the people of western Sydney, for the people of NSW and ultimately Australia because if Sydney is going well, that’s good for everyone.” BMD Constructions has maintained a strong presence in Western Sydney delivering Camden Valley Way – Stage 3 and Narellan Road Upgrade projects on behalf of RMS. Both projects are nearing completion later this year. Craig Smith, BMD’s General Manager – NSW and ACT, said that BMD Constructions is proud of its reputation for achieving project objectives and milestones while working collaboratively with clients such as Roads and Maritime Services. “The work BMD is undertaking aims to increase capacity to handle future traffic growth, ease costly congestion and reduce travel times,” he said. Stage 1 of the Bringelly Road Upgrade is expected to be completed in 2017.
