The Roe Highway extension is just one portion of a three-part upgrade for the new Perth Freight Link, making the total project worth a massive $1.6 billion.
By 2031, between 45,000-75,000 vehicles will use the Roe Highway on a daily basis, providing easier access points for not only freight trucks, but residents who live in the area.
After the Roe Highway extension, travel time will be cut to just sixteen minutes for travel between the Reid Highway and Freemantle Port – saving precious time for not only regular road users, but freight traffic too.
The completion of this project will provide essential access for a number of people, therefore contractors procuring the right equipment and staff to get the job done is of paramount importance.
After expressions of interest for the Perth Freight Link packages 1 and 2 close, Main Roads WA will shortlist companies to tender, with an expected start time in early 2016.
We have worked closely with a number of the companies that have made us aware of their intention to get involved and we are excited to continue our partnerships should they win the contract.
We have every intention of following up with these companies who have been shortlisted and are enthusiastic to assist with work procurement for such a large-scale project.
Our experience in dealing with these companies means we have the ability to cater for all needs – including wet and dry hire.
Reliable plant and preparation is the key
While the Roe Highway is the first part of the project, other extensions and constructions for the Perth Freight Link will commence soon after, providing extensive opportunities for hire companies to fill gaps where equipment is needed fast.
While expressions of interest have now closed, it’s never too late to look at what we have to offer, so you can put forward a successful bid for the Roe Highway and other packages.
