Main Roads WA has awarded a contract to deliver the second stage of the Albany Ring Road Project to Decmil, as Stage 1 nears completion.
The Albany Ring Road is intended to enhance road safety and freight efficiency in the region by reducing heavy vehicle traffic in the Albany CBD, providing a link to existing roads and improving access to the Mirambeena Strategic Industrial Area.
The new $98m contract will see Decmil construct a 11.5 km freight route which will extend south from the Menang Drive and Albany Highway intersection, running parallel to Link Road and connecting to Princess Royal Drive.
Decmil CEO Rod Heale said the Albany Ring Road Project has been a fantastic success to date.
“In addition to delivering quality work within budget and on schedule, the Project has also generated significant training and indigenous participation. Indigenous participation in the project to date is 10.5%. Aboriginal Business spend to date totalled 5.7% of total contract spend.”
