TOWNSVILLE RING ROAD
Georgiou Group has been awarded the design and construct contract for the Bruce Highway-Townsville Ring Road Stage 5 project, by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DMTR).
The $230 million project involves the duplication of the remaining 5.2km, two-lane undivided section of the Townsville Ring Road between Vickers Bridge and Shaw Road.
Aside from duplication the remaining 2-lane section of the Townsville Ring Road, the team will complete the appropriate bridges and drainage for flood mitigation, lighting, intelligent transport systems, noise mitigation measures and environmental protections.
When complete, the entire 36km Bruce Highway link through Townsville will be a 4-lane standard. Design will commence immediately, with construction underway by mid-2021. Expected completion is set for early 2023.
