SMEC awarded Albion Park Rail Bypass Project

09 October 2018

SMEC: SMEC, in partnership with civil construction firm Fulton Hogan, has won the tender to design and construct the new Albion Park Rail Bypass project for Roads and Maritime Services in New South Wales.

The $500 million project includes a 9.8 kilometre extension of the M1 Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats, bypassing the town and suburb of Albion Park Rail.

SMEC’s Major Projects General Manager Colin Clarke said the team was excited to be working on such a critical project that brought many benefits to commuters and the community.

“The project will complete the ‘missing link’ on the Princes Highway bypassing the last town between Sydney and Bomaderry. It is a major step in improving traffic flow, travel times and safety for commuters while providing improved connectivity and revitalisation opportunities for the local community.

“Working on this project brings great satisfaction to the team and SMEC is delighted to continue our successful partnership with Fulton Hogan in the delivery of important projects on the NSW South Coast and our excellent working relationship with Roads and Maritime Services.”

“This win is a result of the significant contribution and commitment demonstrated by the Fulton Hogan and SMEC teams to the project”

The Albion Park Rail bypass forms part of the Princes Highway upgrade program which is a series of projects to improve safety and efficiency on one of New South Wales’ busiest roads.

Construction is expected to start in early 2019.
