Item 1 of 10






 6 months


 ACT Government

Project Overview

The Federal Highway is a major arterial motorway servicing the majority of traffic between ACT and Sydney. The highway previously linked with the minor collective route of Old Well Station Road in an un- signalised four-way intersection, servicing residents of an adjacent apartment block and heavy vehicles, buses and cars accessing Mitchell, Canberra Park Resort and EPIC. To improve safety and facilitate future development, signalisation was introduced and the geometry of Old Well Station Road changed. Complex was awarded the project in March 2018.

The works included extension of the Federal Highway turning lanes, central traffic islands, road widening, stormwater culverts extension, watermain realignment and reconstruction of 200 metres of Old Well Station Road. Management of the adjustment and realignment of several existing services, and working in areas of dense existing services, including HV electrical and a 450mm gas main was a challenging aspect of the project. The works were completed in the expected timeframe and met high regard from the client and Principals Authorised Person.
