Efficient and reliable movement
The project requires ACCIONA to provide two travel lanes in each direction on the New England Highway and a flyover for vehicles turning right from the Golden Highway towards Maitland and Newcastle.
As part of the project, ACCIONA will also build a roundabout on the Golden Highway with a connection to the New England Highway -providing safer access to adjoining properties- and a new 30-meter-long, three-span bridge over Mudies Creek, designed to withstand possible flooding.
The project awarded to ACCIONA, is part of a $97 million project funded by the New South Wales government.
- Location: Hunter Region, New South Wales.
- Contract type: Construction.
- Infrastructure: 3.4 km of road.

- Widening the New England Highway to provide a divided road with two lanes in each direction between Belford and the Golden Highway.
- Replacing the existing right turn movement from the Golden Highway to the New England Highway with a flyover.
- A roundabout on the Golden Highway with a connection to the New England Highway improves safety for motorists turning left onto the New England Highway towards Singleton and provides safer access to adjoining properties.
- Increase capacity and connectivity of the New England Highway and Golden Highway for the efficient and reliable movement of freight.
- Improve safety at the New England Highway and Golden Highway intersection by reducing the risk of crashes, particularly for motorists turning right from the Golden Highway.
- Increase capacity at the New England Highway and Golden Highway intersection to cater for the predicted increase in traffic movements due to future growth in the Hunter.
