Tunnelling contract awarded for Sydney Harbour link

AUS NEWS | A contract worth AU$722m (£382m) has been awarded for the initial stage of tunnelling for the Western Harbour Tunnel in Sydney, Australia.

Construction will begin within months following the appointment of a joint venture between John Holland and HOCHTIEF subsidiary CPB. The team will build about 1.7km of tunnels from Rozelle to Birchgrove.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said: “This is a critical milestone which will support hundreds of jobs and ensure significant benefits for drivers, including improved travel times and reduced congestion. The tunnel will not only revolutionise how we get around Sydney but also take the pressure off other major roads including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Harbour Tunnel, Anzac Bridge and Western Distributor.”
