Concrete progress on range crossing works

Concrete progress on range crossing works

Nexus Delivery has put out a call for concrete supplies as work continues on the $1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project.

Supply and testing of ready-mixed concrete and stabilised sand products is the latest work package to go out for expressions of interest on the ICN Gateway for the major construction effort.

Nexus is also recruiting for salary positions including environmental co-ordinator, site engineer – earthworks, site engineer – drainage and structures, procurement administrator and contracts administrator. (More at Nexus Delivery Seek positions.)

The Nexus Infrastructure consortium holds the contract to finance, build, operate and maintain the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing in a 25-year public-private partnership.

It has committed to recruit at least 75 per cent of direct labour and sub-contractors from the greater Toowoomba region – which includes the Lockyer Valley, Southern Downs, Western Downs, South Burnett, Goondiwindi and Maranoa areas – during the three-year design and construction phase.

In its latest project update, Nexus said preliminary construction activities were continuing including geotechnical investigations, potholing to identify underground services and fencing works including boundary fencing along sections of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) corridor.

Meanwhile, the Australian Government recently agreed to an enhanced design option to ‘future-proof’ the Warrego Highway West interchange as part of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) project.

The modification will cost $450,000 and enable the interchange traffic bridge span to be widened in the future to accommodate construction of a partial cloverleaf overpass when the volume of traffic over the Toowoomba Range makes it necessary.
