McMahon Services have been awarded the main works contract for the $14.6 million Penola Northern Bypass Project. The project is expected to support approximately 47 full time equivalent jobs over the life of the project, and is set to be open to traffic by mid-2020.
The Penola Northern Bypass is jointly funded, with the Federal Liberal and Nationals Government committing $11.7 million and the South Australian Government committing $2.9 million.
The project forms part of a commitment to deliver a complete bypass of the Penola Township, and will be a continuation of the Penola Southern Bypass from the Robe to Clay Wells Road to the Riddoch Highway, to the north of the Penola Township.
The project also encompasses the construction of a T-junction at the northern end of the bypass with the Riddoch Highway, a staggered T-junction where the Northern and Southern Bypass meet the Robe to Clay Wells Road and realignment of the Riddoch Highway T-junction with the existing Southern Bypass.
“The Penola Northern Bypass is the largest road infrastructure project awarded to McMahon Services by a road authority, and it is humbling to be delivering this important project with the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
Throughout our success of nearly 30 years’ in business, we have been focused on employing locals and supporting the communities in which we work in. We will continue to deliver our projects safely and to the highest standard whilst leaving a positive legacy in the community.”
