Symal wins new contract to deliver Hallam Road project.
2021 is shaping up to be a big year for infrastructure projects.
Partnering with Major Roads Projects to build better roads, Symal has been awarded the Hallam Road and Heatherton Road project under a collaborative style Design and Construct model for MRPV.
The government’s move to create shovel ready projects is a part of the economic recovery including a $3 billion pipeline of future road upgrades and a more collaborative procurement model, creating more immediate jobs, and greater certainty into our future industry.
The Hallam Road upgrade is one of four vital road projects to tackle congestion on Melbourne’s busiest suburban thoroughfares.
Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan says, “The local construction industry is crucial to our economic recovery and that’s why we’re doing everything we can to create jobs and get shovels in the ground as quickly as possible.”
“These vital upgrades to some of our busiest local roads will slash congestion and improve traffic flow for the thousands of drivers who rely on them every day.”
It’s a big job – duplicating Hallam North Road from two to four lanes over 1.5 kilometres, signalising key intersections at Heatherton Road and Thomas Mitchell Drive and installing new drainage and utility service upgrades and new continuous safety barriers.
Not only will the upgrade help to improve traffic flow, but the community will also enjoy new shared use paths along both sides of the project.
Early works are now underway with labour force expected to hit the ground in February.
Well done team!
