Contractors shortlisted for Brisbane’s Centenary Bridge upgrade

Centenary Bridge Jindalee Upgrade proposed design as at August 2021.

In a major milestone for Brisbane’s Centenary Bridge upgrade project at Jindalee, four contractors have been shortlisted by Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads.

The Bielby Hull Brady Joint Venture, the BMD Georgiou Joint Venture, the Fulton Hogan BESIX Watpac Joint Venture and John Holland have all been shortlisted for the project, which will see a new three-lane northbound bridge constructed and the existing bridge refurbished to become a three-lane southbound bridge.

Recognised as the first stage of the overall Centenary Motorway upgrade, the project will also include active transport provisions.

Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said the Centenary Bridge upgrade was one of many critical infrastructure projects being delivered by the Morrison Government across the region.

“The Morrison Government has committed $112 million for the upgrade of the Centenary Bridge, which provides a critical link for South East Queensland carrying more than 85,000 vehicles a day,” Minister Fletcher said.

“Duplicating the Centenary Bridge will help to increase capacity, efficiency and travel-time reliability along the Centenary Motorway, as well as the active transport routes between Brisbane’s central business district and western suburbs.

Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said there had been significant community interest and now was the opportunity to review the project.

“It is important to fix congestion and safety issues along the Centenary Motorway, so the feedback will help us to better understand the experiences and needs of the local community and road users,” Minister Bailey said.

The shortlisted proponents will be invited to submit a tender for the works later this month. This is the first Transport and Main Roads project to have Best Practise Industry Conditions included in the tendering documents.

Community consultation is underway and closes 19 September 2021. For more information, visit the project webpage at: www.tmr.qld.gov.au.
