Main Roads Western Australia has awarded a contract for the NorthLink central section to the Great Northern Connect (GNC) Joint Venture of Laing O’Rourke and BGC Contracting.

The GNC team will design and construct more than 20km of highway and four interchanges, including 14 road bridges, three footbridges, and new cycling and pedestrian facilities.

The NorthLink WA central section is the second package of a programme of works to upgrade the Tonkin Highway to freeway standards and extend the link north connecting with Great Northern Highway and Brand Highway at Muchea.

The highway will provide the northern link into Perth for heavy freight traffic and create direct access for growing suburbs such as Ellenbrook.

Laing O’Rourke’s Australia hub MD – Cathal O’Rourke said, “We are extremely pleased to be playing a major role on another significant project for Western Australia. This project builds on our growing portfolio of national road infrastructure projects and marks an important stage in our growth as a delivery partner of choice in the sector.”

BGC Contracting – CEO Greg Heylen said the company was particularly pleasing to be building on an existing strong relationship with Laing O’Rourke to deliver such a vital infrastructure project.

Construction is expected to start in mid-2017, and is scheduled to be complete by mid-2019.
