Georgiou awarded third NDRRA contract in Gold Coast hinterland
Friday 04, May 2018
Georgiou has been awarded its third contract as part of the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments’ Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) in the aftermath of Severe Tropical Cyclone (STC) Debbie in March 2017.
Georgiou Executive General Manager, Gary Georgiou said the team was excited to begin work on Beechmont Road after the successful delivery of a similar project which was completed in February 2018.
“We recently delivered three major landslip repairs along Lamington National Park Road and our staff have come out the other side with a great experience on slip rectification works,” he said.
“Beechmont Road is our third contract with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) for the NDRRA and we look forward to further fostering our relationship with TMR and the Gold Coast hinterland community.”
Progress to date on key Georgiou NDRRA sites include:
Lamington National Park Road – work to repair three of the most critical sites was completed in February 2018. With the works now complete, the sections of road under give-way traffic control have now reopened.
Gold Coast–Springbrook Road – reconstruction works in progress at 18 critical sites and 35 minor sites within a 10 kilometre closed section.
Beechmont Road – design for repairs to 23 landslip sites is now complete and the contract for reconstruction works was awarded to Georgiou Group in late March 2018. Works on the repairs began in April 2018.
Compared to other natural disasters in recent years, the heavy rainfall totals associated with STC Debbie caused significant landslips as well as road damage, with more than 200 sites requiring geotechnical repairs, some of which were unprecedented in Queensland.

National building construction, engineering and property development company Georgiou Group has been awarded the New England Highway Upgrade by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) at Bolivia Hill in NSW, valued at $40 million.
The project, which will be delivered in joint venture with SRG, involves the construction of 2.1km of new road, a new 320-metre long bridge, wider lanes in each direction and widened road shoulders to improve safety.
NSW Executive General Manager Rob Monaci said the latest award is indicative of the strong relationship between RMS and Georgiou.
“In 2015, Georgiou expanded their operations into New South Wales after more than 35 years’ on the West Coast. In the past two years, we’ve worked hard to build a strong reputation in the transport sector in NSW and this contract is evidence of our strong roads capability,” he said.
“To date, we’ve delivered major infrastructure upgrades on Northern Road, Grong Grong Realignment and are currently delivering major upgrades on the M1 and the Pacific Highway network.
“The depth of our team, strong knowledge of roads and bridges and ability to work with our client to achieve best-for-project solutions has stood us in good stead and we look forward to delivering another great infrastructure project for the people of New South Wales.”
Located 35km south of Tenterfield, construction will commence immediately with expected completion in March 2020.
The project is expected to improve road safety, improve road transport productivity, efficiency and reliability of travel and minimise the impact on the natural, culture and built environment.
