Ferrovial and Acciona to build £143M bridge

Harwood bridge

A Ferrovial and Acciona consortium has won the contract to design and build the Clarence River Crossing in Australia

The deal, worth £143M, involves construction of a 1.5km bridge at Harwood, New South Wales. It will be 30m high and have four lanes. Work is expected to start shortly.

The team has already upgraded a 19.5km stretch of the same highway, which included several bridges and two interchanges. It was Ferrovial’s first big project in Australia.

This latest bridge will be the longest of more than 100 bridges on that part of the Pacific Highway between Woolgoolga and Ballina. The Pacific Highway connects Sydney and Brisbane and is one of Australia’s busiest roads.

Last year Ferrovial’s subsidiary, Cintra, was part of a joint venture that was awarded the £900M Toowoomba Second Range Crossing highway in Queensland.
