Main Roads Western Australia has awarded a contract to deliver the second stage of the Albany Ring Road Project to Decmil.

The Albany Ring Road is a proposed heavy haulage route around the City of Albany that will allow large freight trucks to bypass local traffic to and from the Port of Albany. The Albany Ring Road will link the existing major arterial main roads and highways radiating from Albany and provide improved access to the Mirambeena Industrial Estate.

The contract, worth $98 million, will see Decmil construct a 11.5 km freight route which will extend south from the Menang Drive and Albany Highway intersection, running parallel to Link Road and connecting to Princess Royal Drive.

The first stage of the project, which is nearing completion, will connect Albany Highway to Lancaster Road.

The project will improve freight productivity and access to freight gateways, improve connectivity between major freight infrastructure including airports and commercial and industrial areas and improve road safety.

Decmil CEO Rod Heale said the Albany Ring Road Project will provide a boost for the local economy, as well as employment.

“In addition to delivering quality work within budget and on schedule, the Project has also generated significant training and indigenous participation. Indigenous participation in the project to date is 10.5 per cent. Aboriginal Business spend to date totalled 5.7 per cent of total contract spend,” Heale said.
