Fulton Hogan awarded Mount Ousley contract

Fulton Hogan has been awarded a major contract to design and build the new Mount Ousley interchange, expected to deliver faster and safer journeys for 50,000 motorists.

The $390 million project is jointly funded by the Australian Government and NSW Government, with $240 million and $150 million contributed respectively.

The project will enhance safety outcomes by providing northbound access from Mount Ousley Rd to the motorway via an overpass and better separation of cars and heavy vehicles.

When complete, the total scope of the project includes southbound heavy vehicle bypass lanes and safety ramps, a commuter carpark, and a shared path and vehicle overpass for improved access between Mount Ousley Road, M1 Princes Motorway and the University of Wollongong.

Transport for NSW and Fulton Hogan will work collaboratively in the detailed design stage which is set to commence early this year ahead of survey and geotechnical investigations, utility relocation and vegetation clearing.

Major works are expected to take place in late 2024 with an estimated completion time of four years.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King said the project will benefit road users through safer and quicker journeys.

“We are one step closer to starting major work on this critical piece of infrastructure, which will not only improve travel times for motorists but also provide safer journeys and support growing freight movements to the south coast,” Minister King said.

“This stretch of road is known for traffic queuing and delays during peak periods. Separating cars and heavy vehicles travelling southbound is a unique feature that will provide a safer environment for everyone using the road.”

Roads Australia would like to congratulate Fulton Hogan on being awarded a contract to deliver another significant piece of transport infrastructure.
