Decmil Group has been awarded a $98 million contract for the second phase of the Albany Ring Road project.

This follows the engineering group previous award for the contract of the first phase of the Main Roads project, valued at $55 million.

The Albany Ring Road project aims to construct a 11.5 km freight route extending south from the Menang Drive and Albany Highway intersection, for trucks to bypass local traffic to and from the Port of Albany.

The new road will be constructed around City of Albany in two stages, with the first stage being a new interchange at Albany Highway and extension of Ring Road south to Lancaster Road.

Decmil has been on site in Albany for the first phase of construction since 2020 with the total project expected to be completed by late 2024.

Decmil chief executive Rod Heale said the project had generated significant training and indigenous participation.

“Indigenous participation in the project to date is 10.5 per cent. Aboriginal business spend to date totalled 5.7 per cent of total contract spend,” he said.

The estimated cost of the project was listed as $175 million but an ASX announcement by Decmil said the total value of the Albany Ring Road project was now $154 million.

The federal government contributed $140 million towards the Albany Ring Road project.
