McConnell Dowell is pleased to announce that an alliance including McConnell Dowell, the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure, and designers Mott MacDonald and Arup has been awarded the major works contract on the North-South Corridor, Regency Road to Pym Street Project in Adelaide, South Australia.

The alliance will work together with industry partner Bardavcol on the design and construction of the new 1.8-kilometre motorway along South Road, connecting the South Road Superway to the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project.

McConnell Dowell’s Australian Managing Director Jim Frith welcomed the news and said the award will see McConnell Dowell continue to play a leading role in delivering safe, smart and efficient infrastructure for all South Australians.

Federal Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population Alan Tudge said…

“When complete, will deliver efficient and reliable travel for up to 53,000 vehicles per day on this section of South Road, by removing the need to travel through two signalised intersections.”

South Australian Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll said...

“We are building congestion busting infrastructure that will cut travel times, make our roads safer and also secure construction jobs into the future.”

The Alliance are currently working together on the delivery of the Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation Project and have previously delivered a number of other large-scale infrastructure projects in the State.

Main construction works are expected to commence in late 2019 and it is anticipated that the project will support on average approximately 210 full time equivalent jobs per year, over the life of the project.
