John Holland awarded first contract for NorthLink WA

John Holland has been awarded the contract to deliver the first section of NorthLink WA.

The Southern Section from Guildford Road to Reid Highway will deliver new bridges and interchanges at the intersections of Collier Road and Morley Drive, a flyover to take Benara Road over Tonkin Highway and upgrades to Tonkin Highway north of Guildford Road.

Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Palin, said John Holland had industry leading expertise in highway upgrade projects and was proud to be partnering with Main Roads in delivering this important infrastructure for the local community.

“This project will deliver key benefits for the community by increasing road capacity to reduce congestion on local roads and improve journey times. It will also provide significant safety and productivity benefits for Perth,”
he said.

“Tonkin Highway carries more than 70,000 vehicles per day and the upgrade from signalised intersections to freeway style interchanges will improve traffic flows.”

Construction work on Tonkin Highway is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2016.
