Jacobs joins £357M Adelaide highways project

NCE stock roads

Jacobs has become part of a joint-venture that has been subcontracted to design the £357M Darlington Upgrade project in Adelaide, Australia.

The joint venture consists of Jacobs, KBR and SMEC Australia. It has been given the contract by the Gateway South Consortium, which is a joint venture between Fulton Hogan and Laing O’Rourke.

The Jacobs team will be working on reconfiguring a 3.3km stretch of road from the Southern Expressway to north of Tonsley Boulevard. It will also design a lowered, non-stop motorway section.

The detailed design work will start shortly with ground works being completed by 2018.

Jacobs senior vice president for buildings and infrastructure Patrick Hill said: “We are proud to be involved in this landmark transport project for South Australia and look forward to working closely with the other members of the Gateway South team. This project represents an excellent opportunity to leverage our proven experience and expertise on major transport infrastructure projects.”
