Pacific Highway Upgrade from Hexham, near Newcastle, to the Queensland border near Tweed Heads is a major regional greenfield and brownfield construction project that requires constant interaction with an operational highway environment.
Boral is providing cement, concrete, asphalt and quarry products, logistics and fixed and on site plants for stages awarded to various contractors for works including multi-lane upgrades in both directions, new roads and bridges, intersection upgrades and amendments to local roads.
Boral has been resourcing projects through the existing local and regional networks and has the capacity to increase resources from within Boral if required or source from the local market. We also have embedded chain of responsibility systems to manage the logistical challenges of large regional infrastructure projects.
Our clients include McConnell Dowell, Acciona Ferrovial and Lendlease for the project funded by the Australian and NSW governments.
The upgrade started in 1996 and is expected to be completed by 2020.
