John Holland, who was awarded the $176m construction contract for Stage One of the $1.12b NorthLink WA roads project, is teaming up with engineering and construction firm Valmec to deliver the contract.

Valmec have been awarded a $13.3m contract to provide bulk earthworks and drainage work for stage one. Work will begin immediately and is expected to be completed by October 2017.

Stage Two of the contract was recently awarded to a Joint Venture comprising BGC Contracting and Lang O'Rourke. Construction work is expected to start in late 2016 and finish in mid 2019.

A preferred bidder for stage three, the northern section, from Ellenbrook to Muchea, is yet to be announced. Construction work is planned to start in mid 2017 and finish in mid 2019. 

Expect to see plenty of equipment around including excavators, rollers, graders, trucks, and cranes – just to name a few.
