Hallam Road Upgrade contract awarded to BMD Group
By Lynton Balia on 28 September 2018
BMD Group was awarded with the contract to deliver the vital upgrade to the key arterial road – a new milestone by the $38.4 million Hallam Road Upgrade in Victoria. The project is aimed at improving the 1.2-kilometre stretch of road between Ormond Road and South Gippsland Highway in Hampton Park.
Works include construction of a new walking and cycling path on both sides of the road for better access to bus services, reopening of Evans Road in the City of Casey to reconnect the communities of Lyndhurst and Lynbrook, additional lanes for better traffic flow and installation of traffic lights at the South Gippsland Highway intersection and at the SUEZ Hampton Park Resource and Recovery Centre.
With more than 40,000 vehicles relying on the busy intersection at Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway, the project is vital for the region as well as for over 10,000 vehicles travelling along Hallam Road each day.
Construction is set to begin by late 2018 and due to be completed in early 2020.
