Perth-based contractor Georgiou has added to its portfolio of east coast construction work, winning work on the Pacific Highway upgrade in northern NSW.
The new package involves the construction of a southbound carriageway including demolition and reconstruction of two bridges, earthworks and realignment of a new permanent junction with the Pacific Highway.
It is valued in excess of $40 million and expected to employ 50 people at its peak.
The project is part of the $4.3 billion Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade.
Chief executive John Georgiou said the company was pleased to be associated with the largest regional infrastructure project in Australia.
“Traditionally, Georgiou has built a reputation as a quality roads contractor in Western Australia, however over the past five years our focus has been on building a national reputation across NSW and Queensland,” he said.
“This project is a great opportunity to showcase our capability in the transport market within NSW while building on our relationship with Roads and Maritime Services.”
Georgiou is currently delivering NSW’s Northern Road upgrade ($57 million), along with three substantial Queensland projects – the Warrego Highway upgrade stage 2 ($53m), the Telegraph Rd upgrade in Brisbane ($39m) and the Tinana Interchange project ($18m).
In WA, it is upgrading the Mandurah traffic bridge at a cost of $52 million.
