CPB Contractors wins $175m final contract for NorthLink WA project

Monica Gameng   |   January 29, 2017

CPB Contractors has been awarded the third and final contract – worth $175 million – for the design and construction of the northern section of the NorthLink WA project – from Ellenbrook to Muchea.

“NorthLink WA is a vitally important project, generating about 1,000 jobs and demonstrating the Liberal National Government’s commitment to transport infrastructure and West Australians.

“The final section involves construction of a free-flowing dual carriageway between Ellenbrook and Muchea, with new interchanges at Stock Road, Neaves Road and Brand Highway,” said Transport Minister Bill Marmion.


Mr Marmion stated that this stage of the project will vastly improve traffic congestion, with drivers able to bypass about 16 sets of traffic lights as well as two railway crossings. This project will also be able to address safety issues at four of Western Australia’s most dangerous intersection by adding over 150-kilometres of road safety barriers which will protect vehicle occupants and, at the same time, separate oncoming traffic.

“This project will not only create safer communities by reducing traffic on local roads, it will connect those communities through the inclusion of separate pedestrian and cycle paths,” Mr Marmion said.

Once NorthLink WA is completed, it will be able to provide a continuous connection from the Perth Airport area all the way to Muchea. The $1.12 billion NorthLink WA project will also be a part of a high standard freight connection to Fremantle Port, together with the Gateway WA and Perth Freight Link projects.

“Construction is already well underway on Stage 1, Stage 2 is commencing and Stage 3 will begin by mid-2017, so we are certainly on target for project completion in 2019,” Mr Marmion said.
