IJGlobal Award given to the Nexus consortium for the best road deal in Asia Pacific

Category: General / 03 April 2016

The Asia Pacific awards dinner took place on Thursday 3 March 2016 in Singapore. David Fanjul and Juan Alcala received the award on behalf of Ferrovial Agroman and Cintra.

In August 2015, Nexus Infrastructure was awarded the contract to design, construct, operate and maintain the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing. In partnership with the Commonwealth and State Governments, Nexus will deliver the $1.6 billion road bypass connecting the Gore Highway at Athol in the west to the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east, via Charlton.

The Nexus Infrastructure consortium consists of Plenary Group, Cintra Infraestructuras Internacional S.L., Acciona Concesiones S.L., Acciona Infrastructure Australia, Ferrovial Agroman Australia and Broadspectrum (Australia) formerly known as Transfield Services. The consortium brings together the ideal balance of global leaders in road construction and social infrastructure with a track record of successful local project delivery, and will combine with local Queensland-based resources.

The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) Project is the largest Commonwealth Government commitment to a single road project in Queensland's history. Addressing a recognised constraint in the National Land Transport Network, the TSRC will ensure freight efficiencies and significantly improve driver safety and community amenity by removing heavy vehicles from the central business district.

The TSRC is a road bypass route to the north of Toowoomba, approximately 41 kilometres in length. It is the centrepiece of major economic development taking place in south-western Queensland and will create a safer, faster and more efficient route for connecting freight to major ports and markets. The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing will help to reduce congestion in Toowoomba Central Business District, diverting heavy vehicles from local streets, improving efficiency and driver safety.

The project is in its preliminary phases with a current team of 85 staff; the key activities taken place are the main site office set up in Toowoomba, design, which is primarily carried out from the Brisbane office, geotechnical site investigation, and works associated with the required environmental approvals.
