CMC has been awarded the $37 million Ourimbah Stage 3 Project which will involve widening the Pacific Highway to provide two lanes in each direction.
The fourth major contract awarded to CMC by Roads and Maritime Services, this project continues to cement CMC’s position in New South Wales.
Works largely involve bridge demolition, bridge construction, retraining wall construction, ground improvement works, earthworks, pavements, stormwater drainage, shared footpath, public utility adjustments, street lighting, traffic signals, property adjustments and landscaping.
The project will involve 24 property adjustments and require close consultation with key stakeholders that may be impacted by the works. Traffic management will play an integral part of our delivery methodology and approach with 29,000 motorists travelling this part of the highway each day.
CMC was one of eight tenderers to competitively bid for this project. Works are expected to commence in April 2016 with a construction duration of 27 months.
After a successful Phase 1 submission, CMC has progressed to the final tender stage (Phase 2) for the Port Drive Upgrade. With an estimated value of $101 million, the project includes the delivery of two bridges, earthworks, pavements, and ground improvements. Construction is estimated to start in June 2016 with a project duration of 24 months.
The client’s Expression of Invitation in September 2015 drew interest and submissions from eight contractors. Showcasing the strength of CMC’s team and credentials, CMC was shortlisted to one of four invited to provide a budget tender – and has now been subsequently shortlisted to one of two who will work through the full and final tender phase.
CMC Estimator Matthew Webster is thrilled with the success of Phase 1 and is looking forward to submitting a competitive final submission.
Focused on providing the client with the smartest possible design and construction outcome, Matthew, along with a dedicated CMC team, will be relocating to South Brisbane for six weeks to complete Phase 2 with our design consultant, SMEC.
