Bridge improvements set for Brand Highway

Transport Minister Dean Nalder today announced that WBHO Civil Pty Ltd had been awarded an $800,000 contract for bridge works on the Brand Highway, between Dongara and the intersection of Brand Highway and Midlands Road. 

The work will involve strengthening bridge 1026 over the railway with reinforced concrete overlay, construction of new road pavement and kerbing, and installation of new traffic barriers. 

“These works will improve the safety and serviceability of the road network and enable growing numbers of heavy vehicles to use this vital link in the Mid West Gascoyne region,” Mr Nalder said. 

The contract is scheduled to commence in March 2015 with work estimated to be completed by June 2015. 

The project will be managed by Main Roads Western Australia’s Mid West-Gascoyne Region.
