Our VEC business in a Joint Venture (JV) with Shaw Contracting have won the contract to deliver Tasmania’s $33m Perth to Breadalbane Midland Highway project for the Department of State Growth. 

The project will start early this year, with a practical completion date expected to be in March 2018.

The duplication of the Midland Highway from Perth to Breadalbane forms part of a broader strategy to improve the safety and efficiency of Tasmania’s National Transport corridor. Completion of the project will provide unimpeded overtaking opportunity and improve safety and reliability.

The project will also link with the likely ultimate arrangement required to provide both the southern and western stages of the Perth Link Roads project. The Perth to Breadalbane duplication is designed to complement the future stages.
