DownerMouchel to upgrade Victoria Highway in WA's North West


Posted by Sophia Rostron

DownerMouchel, a joint venture between Downer EDI Limited and Mouchel, has been given a $3.5 million contract to upgrade a 10 kilometre section of the Victorian Highway, west of Kununurra in WA. 

The project includes works to widen the existing seven metre seal to nine metres, culvert widening and installation of audible edge lines. 

DownerMouchel is part of Main Roads' Integrated Services Agreements that provide operational asset management, network operations, minor capital improvements and maintenance services as required on the State's road network. 

Western Australia Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the project should boost efficiency for North-West road users. 

"The widened road will improve safety and reduce maintenance costs as a result of less edge wear to the road," Mr Nalder said.

The upgrade will be managed by Main Roads Kimberley Region and finish by November 2016.
