Decmil Group has been awarded a ‘construct only’ contract to deliver the Roy Hill-Munjina road alignment works in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The works, worth up to $28.2 million, will comprise the construction of a single span road bridge over BHP’s Yandi rail line, as well as the realignment of the Roy Hill-Munjina road, including 2.82 kilometres of road construction.

Decmil CEO Dickie Dique said the contract followed the delivery of various infrastructure projects to Main Roads WA, including practical completion of the $47 million Reid Highway widening project in the first half of the 2021 financial year.

The Reid Highway widening project included design and construction of a 4-kilometre dual-carriageway road between Altone Road and West Swan Road in Perth’s north-eastern suburbs.

“Decmil has build a strong track record with the various infrastructure delivery authorities across our geographical regions and in particular Main Roads WA, which was a key driver behind the company securing this contract,” Mr Dique said.

Decmil’s geographical region is not limited to Western Australia. In March, Decmil was also awarded a contract worth approximately $120 million to upgrade Victoria’s Gippsland railway and secured a circa $25 million contract for road works on the Bruce Highway in Queensland.

“As we continue to enhance our operational efficiency and successfully deliver on contracts for key blue chip government clients, we continue to capitalise on the thriving infrastructure sector in Australia,” Mr Dique added.

Works on the Roy Hill-Munjina project will commence around October 2021, with completion of the contracts anticipated by mid 2022.
