An upgrade to two of Australia's most important international gateways will begin early next year. John Holland today announced they've been chosen by the NSW Government to manage delivery of the $170m East project in Sydney, upgrading roads east of the airport and remove the General Holmes Drive rail level crossing by constructing a road underpass.
“This is a vital hub of economic activity for New South Wales, and we are proud to work with the State Government to ensure vehicles travel through as efficiently as possible,” said John Holland Chief Executive Officer, Joe Barr.
Roads and Maritime Services is delivering the Airport East precinct project, which includes:
- Replacing the General Holmes Drive rail level crossing with a road underpass that links General Holmes Drive, Botany Road and Wentworth Avenue to improve the movement of rail freight and improve access to the Airport, Mascot and the eastern suburbs
- Providing improvements to the Mill Pond Road intersections with General Holmes Drive and Botany Road to support future growth and access to the Airport
- Widening Joyce Drive and General Holmes Drive between O'Riordan Street and Mill Pond Road to three lanes in each direction to improve traffic flow around the Airport and to Port Botany
Regional General Manager NSW/ACT, Scott Olsen, said whilst John Holland had grown and diversified, civil construction remained a key capability.
“Our advanced approach has been crucial when delivering some of Australia’s most complex road projects, such as Westconnex M4 East and the Pacific Highway - Devils Pulpit in New South Wales,” he said.
