The AUD $342 million Nowra Bridge was identified as one of the Priority Projects in the Infrastructure Australia 2020 Priority List.
The Princes Highway is the main link between Sydney and southern New South Wales, with over 51,000 vehicles using the existing crossings each day. The project is vital to improve safety for all road users, reduce congestion and support future growth.
SMEC was recently awarded the Project Verification role on the Nowra Bridge project under a tripartite agreement with Transport for NSW and Fulton Hogan. Fulton Hogan is currently undertaking the design and construction of the new, incrementally launched, four-lane bridge over the Shoalhaven River. The project also includes upgraded intersections and additional lanes on the Princes Highway.
As the Project Verifier, SMEC is providing design verification services for the project. We will also provide construction verification services once major work commences in the second half of 2020 through to completion in 2024.
The award of this contract follows SMEC’s high level of performance on the verification of the Batemans Bay Bridge project and is further testament to SMEC’s position as a key provider of verification and certification services on major infrastructure projects.
