In the ‘How to get a job at …….’ series we are going to be running over Australian Mining and Construction projects all over the country. In each post we will include an Overview of the project, a Location Profile, the Companies involved, the Occupations required, the skills / qualifications that will help you to get your foot in the door and the Enterprise Bargaining Agreements. This will help you to stay in the loop and know how to skill up where needed. The aim is to help you get yourself into the best position to land a start on the major sites and projects around Australia.
About the Bringelly Road Upgrade Project
From the NSW Gov. website
The Bringelly Road Upgrade is part of the work being delivered through the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan. The Australian and NSW governments have jointly provided $3.6 billion funding for the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan to build roads to support the development of growth centres, employment and the proposed airport at Badgerys Creek.
As part of this 10 year road improvement program the governments have funded the $509 million works of the 10 kilometre of Bringelly Road Upgrade between Camden Valley Way and The Northern Road (Stage 1 and 2).
Bringelly Road Upgrade consists of a two lane road to a six lane divided road with a central median between the eastern side of Upper Canal Bridge and the western side of the Eastwood Road intersection, through the future Leppington Town centre. The remainder of Bringelly Road will be upgraded from a two lane to a four lane divided road with a wide central median. The wide central median will allow for widening to six lanes, if required in the future.
The upgrade of Bringelly Road will be carried out in two stages:
- Stage 1: 5.7km upgrade from Camden Valley Way to King Street
- Stage 2: 4.3km upgrade from King Street to The Northern Road.
The contract for Stage 1 of the Bringelly Road Upgrade has been awarded to BMD Constructions Pty Ltd. Construction work started on 20 January this year and will be completed in 2017. Detailed design is being finalised for Stage 2 with construction work expected to start in late 2016 and be completed in late 2018.
