The Newell Highway is the major road link between Brisbane and Melbourne, and a crucial freight artery for the country. This project entailed a 6.4km upgrade of the highway, incorporating 2.5km of brand new road, 3.9km of existing highway upgrades, 7 Reinforced Concrete Box Culvert crossings, 10 Reinforced Concrete Pipe Culvert crossings, 2 Intersection upgrades and 7 Property Access driveways.
The new alignment provides a safer passage through improved road geometry over the older sections of highway. It also provides greater durability to a section of ageing highway. HASLIN worked hand-in-hand with RMS and other stakeholders to deliver a safe, high quality road project that enhances this vital piece of national infrastructure.
“It is rewarding working on a major road project… Being able to stand there and look at a piece of road that all of us have contributed to… There’s a bit of a legacy from doing that.”
