We care about building safer roads that get you home as safely and quickly as possible no matter where you live.

We have delivered solutions for some of Australia’s most complex road projects by harnessing the expertise of our people to help cities grow and stay connected.

We use world-class technology to minimise environmental impacts, recycle materials on projects wherever possible and deliver to modern construction requirements.

  • Our work includes some of Australia’s largest – like the Brisbane Airport Link, and Westconnex in Sydney, South Road Superway in SA, and West Gate Tunnel in Victoria.
  • Complex roads often include bridges as part of their design, and we have delivered conventional bridges, balanced cantilevers, launched structures and cable-stayed bridges. We were involved in strengthening Melbourne’s iconic West Gate Bridge to increase its longevity, which was one of the most complex, high risk engineering projects undertaken in Australia.
