Osborne Park-based BGC Contracting has been chosen to deliver the main civil construction work on part of a $4.4 billion highway upgrade project in NSW.

BGC said this morning it would work on a 13-kilometre section of the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade for the NSW government.

BGC will provide bulk earthwork, road and pavement construction, and bridge work and finishing work under the contract, with operations to begin from next month.

The value of the contract was not disclosed, but Business News understands is in the range of about $100 million.

About 155 kilometres of highway infrastructure is being upgraded under the whole project.

BGC chief executive Greg Heylen said the company would be working closely with other contractors, Roads and Maritime Services and its delivery partner Pacific Complete to build the section of the highway.

“In 2016, as a part of our diversification strategy, we established new offices in both Sydney and Brisbane to extend our services to clients across the east coast of Australia. We believe NSW offers significant potential in public infrastructure,” he said.

“The contract award is further encouragement for the company’s heightened strategic focus on public infrastructure projects and other opportunities in resources on the east coast.

“Although there have been encouraging signs in the commodities sector, particularly coal, the downturn required us to refine our growth strategy by diversifying revenue streams through a broader geographic and commodities mix.”
