Abigroup appointed to build Nagambie Bypass
26 February 2010
Abigroup has been appointed by VicRoads to deliver the $108 million Nagambie Bypass in Victoria.
The project, which is due to open in mid 2012, involves the design and construction of six bridges and 13.5 km of freeway-standard road extending from Mitchellstown Road to Kirwans Bridge - Longwood Road.
The Bypass will complete the missing link in the freeway route through the Goulburn Valley, better connecting Victoria’s fruit and vegetable growing regions and forming part of the national highway network between Melbourne and Brisbane.
Abigroup’s Managing Director David Jurd said, “The award of this project rewards our Victorian engineering team for their extensive tender effort.”
The compound has already been established and the first pieces of earthmoving equipment will be arriving shortly.
In 2003 Abigroup successfully completed the $66.7 million Goulburn Valley Freeway – Murchison East Deviation for VicRoads. The project was delivered 10 months ahead of the contract completion date.
