BMD awarded contract to improve Kumarina and Munarra Floodways in WA

Sophia Rostron   |   September 25, 2016

Main Roads WA has named BMD Constructions as the successful tenderer to build two bridges at Kumarina and Munarra on the Great Northern Highway in the Shire of Meekatharra. Building on their bridge construction capability in Western Australia, BMD said in a company statement that "the project will provide necessary flood mitigation infrastructure along the highway for Main Roads Western Australia."

"The two site locations are approximately 146 kilometres apart, with the Kumarina floodways component involving the construction of two precast, prestressed Main Roads Western Australia standard plank bridges and the realignment of the Great Northern Highway, as well as the construction of a floodway in Munarra." 

Construction is expected to start in September, with the finished flood mitigation project to boost road user safety and minimise disruptions along this vital highway.
