Fulton Hogan get the Majura Parkway contract

By johnboy - 14 September 2012 9

Champagne corks will be popping in the offices of Fulton Hogan after Chief Minister Gallagher announced she’s giving them the $288 million contract to build the Majura Parkway:

With the awarding today of the construction contract to Fulton Hogan, work on the $288 million Majura Parkway project will soon commence. Tenders for the construction of Majura Parkway were called on 26 May 2012 and closed 31 July 2012.

“I’m pleased to announce Fulton Hogan as the successful company to undertake the construction of the Majura Parkway,” Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Anthony Albanese, said today. “This signifies the next step in this critical road infrastructure project which will deliver 11.5 kilometres of dual carriageway connecting the Federal Highway through to the Monaro Highway.

If you are having a cheap shot at the GDE, do remember that the road, rightly or wrongly was going to be built as a single carriageway first then duplicated later. It’s not like the government ran out of money and changed midway through like you are inferring. What did change however was the time between building and duplicating.

If by “originally” you mean after many decades of planning, mind changing, cutting down trees and several court cases, then yes. Although I define “originally” different to you.

After seeing the standard of many roads in New Zealand, I’m not sure Fulton Hogan was such a good choice after all, bro!

Ok , ACT share is 144 m .. Please remember that figure as it will soon fly out the window when construction starts. There will be variations to contract due to everything you can think of, plus of course rise and fall in general costs ( nothing ever falls by the way ).

Spot on. Watch scope of project change constantly to ensure it remains on budget, and on time. Dual lanes go down to one lane etc.

So, once they get that done will they start work on removing all the sets of traffic lights and round-a-bouts down the Monaro Highway?

Fulton Hogan? Choice, bro.
