A team of John Holland and Seymour Whyte will deliver flood proofing and congestion reduction upgrades along the Bruce Highway at the Maroochydore Road and Mons Road interchanges in Forest Glen, Queensland.

The upgrades will include interchange improvements, new service road connections on the eastern and western sides of the highway, new bridges and new drainage structures under the highway. This is hoped to improve both congestion and flood immunity in the Eudlo Creek.

John Holland Executive General Manager QLD/NT/NZ Rob Evans said the team was excited to get started.

“This project is about creating better connected communities and improving road user safety at this location on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr. Evans said.

“We are excited to use our expertise to improve these important highway connections, and this is an excellent opportunity to build on our recent success on the Edmonton to Gordonvale upgrade of the Bruce Highway.”

He said the work will help traffic to flow smoothly and create new opportunities for people to join the growing Queensland construction industry.

Seymour Whyte CEO and MD John Kirkwood said the company was delighted to continue the working relationship in the Sunshine Coast region and to be awarded the contract for the Bruce Highway Upgrade, Maroochydore Road Interchange project.

“This award demonstrates the civil engineering capability within the group drawing on our combined proven capability to efficiently deliver major infrastructure projects within the region,” Mr. Kirkwood said.

He says Seymour Whyte are committed to working closely with local suppliers, local communities and the Queensland Government to deliver this important upgrade safely and efficiently.

“With strong population growth and increasing tourism, we look forward to being part of the successful development of the Sunshine Coast and continuing our long-standing relationship in the region.”
