Monica Gameng   |   November 28, 2019

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to design and build the $180 million Townsville Ring Road Stage 5 project has been released to market, keeping the ‘road boom’ rolling in the region.

The multi-million dollar project will focus on providing opportunities for local workers and businesses, with approximately 200 jobs up for grabs.

“We’ve delivered more than $790 million in Townsville road projects over the past four years, creating 1,200 jobs. And we’re not letting up.

“This is the final piece of the puzzle for Townsville’s Ring Road project, making sure that we’re ready for the city’s growth and that locals and businesses can access vital services and work,” Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said.

Stage 5 of the Townsville Ring Road project will include duplicating the remaining six-kilometre  2-lane section of road between Vickers Bridge over Ross River and Shaw Road interchange as well as providing access to and from Beck Drive.

“Projects such as this one are going to increase the capacity and connectivity of the Townsville road network.

“These projects are delivering significant social and economic benefits by reducing congestion and travel times and improving the efficiency and reliability of freight movements through our city,” Federal Member for Herbert Phillip Thompson said.

The successful contractor who will design and build the project will be announced next year, with construction anticipated to commence by mid-2021.
