FKG-McIlwain Civil JV wins $115m worth of contracts on Warrego Highway project


Posted by Monica Gameng

The FKG Group and McIlwain Civil joint venture has been awarded contracts amounting to $115 million for works on the Warrego Highway Upgrade through Dalby.

The contract award is part of the $635 million Warrego Highway Upgrade Program and scope of works will include the construction of extra turning lanes as well as safety features.

According to Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud, this project will cover approximately seven kilometres from Dalby West – between Nicholson and Watts Streets – and Dalby East – Between Winton and Nicholson Streets.

“As part of works, there will be a new four-lane section between Dalby – Cecil Plains Road and Orpen Street, along with a new four-lane section between Moonie Highway and Black Street. There will also be upgrades to the existing four-lane section between Orpen Street and the Moonie Highway including a centre median strip, new kerbs and improved street lights.

“Roughly 7,000 vehicles use this route each day, so the addition of new lanes and traffic signals will make a big difference in managing the increasing amount of traffic and keeping all drivers and pedestrians safe,” Mr Littleproud said.

The Warrego Highway Upgrade Program consists of 15 projects, funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments on an 80:20 agreement.
