Our Pacific Highway Upgrade Woolgoolga to Ballina Section 2A – Wells Crossing to Glenugie project has been selected as a finalist for the 2021 Australian Construction Achievement Award (ACAA). The ACAA is presented by the Australian Constructors Association and Engineers Australia, and brings together the best construction projects delivered by the nation’s very best construction companies.
The project involved upgrading an eight-kilometre stretch of the Pacific Highway from Wells Crossing to Glenugie, New South Wales, between Grafton and Coffs Harbour as part of Transport for NSW’s (TfNSW) Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade. ACCIONA created a new road surface, using a wide variety of innovative techniques.
Purpose of the Project:
Woolgoolga to Ballina was the final link in the Pacific Highway, between Hexham and the Queensland border, to be upgraded to four lanes. Upgrading the Pacific Highway and carrying out safety improvements to the existing highway have brought major improvements to road conditions. These improvements support regional development and provide:
- Safer travel
- Reduced travel times with improved transport efficiency
- More consistent and reliable travel, and
- Improved amenity for local communities.
