Decmil secures new QLD Bruce Highway upgrade works contract

Monica Gameng   |   March 22, 2021

Decmil Group will be delivering upgrades to the Bruce Highway between Gin Gin and Benaraby in Queensland following the award of a $25 million contract from the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR). 

The project site is located approximately 90 kilometres south of Gladstone and scope of works will include road widening works as well as safety improvements on the Bruce Highway. 

For this project, Decmil will deliver earthworks, minor drainage repairs and enhancement, pavement, line marking, signage, safety barriers and landscaping. The contractor is also going to be responsible for streetlighting works. 

“Successfully delivering numerous projects for the DTMR and our successful progression of another Bruce Highway contract was a key factor behind Decmil winning this contract. 

“It demonstrates our operational efficiency and our growing ability to capitalise on the buoyant pipeline of infrastructure projects in Queensland and Australia more broadly, as our business revitalisation strategy progresses,” Decmil CEO Dickie Dique said. 

Construction on this project is set to commence this month and is due to be completed by late 2022. 

This contract award is on top of the $13.5 million contract for upgrades on the Bruce Highway between Calliope River and Mt Alma, which construction is already underway.
