BMD wins Northshore Hamilton precinct road upgrades

Sophia Rostron   |   January 9, 2017

Following a public competitive bid process, the Queensland Government has named BMD Constructions as the successful tenderer for the Northshore Hamilton precinct road infrastructure upgrades in Hamilton, Queensland

Increasing traffic and visitors have made infrastructure upgrade works necessary to transform the current industrial access roads into roads that serve the new residential, retail commercial and recreational uses at Northshore Hamilton. 

The $26 million project has been split into two stages, with both to be carried out by BMD Constructions: 

  • Project 1 will see Theodore Street extended to create a direct link through to Barcham Street and Cullen Avenue West at a cost of approximately $2 million. These works are programmed to run November 2016 to March 2017.

  • Project 2 which is scheduled to take fifteen months to complete, will involve a $24 million upgrade to Remora Road, MacArthur Avenue, Hercules Street and Harbour Road, including new footpaths, new dedicated cycle lanes, and new traffic lights installed on Remora Road and MacArthur Avenue to improve traffic flow and connectivity along Finnegan Street and Wharf Close.

Having "almost completed works on the first stage of the upgrade", Project 2 will see BMD deliver road widenings, resurfacing, new footpaths, new dedicated cycle lanes, and new landscaping, ensuring safer traffic flow and integration between vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. 

The second stage of the project will commence this month and is due to be completed by mid-2018, weather permitting.

Project 3, significant upgrades to the park at Hercules Street, Remora Road and Kingsford Smith Drive, are currently planned to begin in mid-2018 with community input to be sought in 2017.
