Civilex has been awarded the contract to deliver works on the $1.8 billion Western Roads Upgrade that aims to improve eight key arterial roads in Melbourne’s western suburbs, with project design and construction lead WBHO Infrastructure.
With Civilex delivering works on Dunnings and Palmer Roads – between Point Cook Road and the Princes Freeway, the scope of works will include widening the bridge at Skeleton Creek, intersection upgrades, construction of pedestrian and cycling paths, an additional lane, and a dedicated bus lane in each direction from Wallace Avenue to Dunnings Road.
Motorists in Melbourne’s western suburbs will be able to experience safer, less congested and more reliable journeys across the eight arterial roads included in the Western Roads Upgrade package of works, upon completion of all the upgrade works.
The entire Western Roads Upgrade is anticipated to be completed in 2021. Also, an estimated 1,200 jobs opportunities are expected during the delivery phase of the upgrade.
