CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors has been selected by the Queensland Government to deliver the Bruce Highway Upgrade – Cooroy to Curra Section D: Woondum to Curra (C2CD) – Contract 2.
The construct-only contract will generate revenue of $289 million for CPB Contractors. The C2CD project is funded by the Australian and Queensland governments.
The upgrade of the Bruce Highway between Woondum and Curra is a priority road project and is being progressed as part of the national highway network. It will provide a bypass east of Gympie and improve safety while reducing congestion.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “CIMIC Group is pleased to be selected to deliver this important project through CPB Contractors. We look forward to working with communities in the Sandy Creek Road to Curra area and supporting the achievement of greater safety outcomes for road users based on our experience in regional projects in Queensland.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “CPB Contractors successfully completed Section C of the Cooroy to Curra upgrade and will apply that local knowledge to delivering this section safely and with the least disruption possible. We are also committed to engaging with local workers and businesses to facilitate skills development, work opportunities and other community benefits.”
CPB Contractors will be delivering 18 kilometres of new highway, realignments to local roads, 19 bridges and a new interchange at Curra. Work on the project will commence in 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-2024.
