Newell Highway Pilliga Widening Project Site Visit

How great is it to be back out on the road!

Last week, Principal Craig Stoddart and Project Manager Patrick Deed went on a site visit to the Newell Highway located in the North West Region of New South Wales.

CJC is currently working on the Newell Highway Pilliga Widening project with Arup, providing constructability advice for the detailed design.

The NSW Government has committed $8.8 million to develop design concepts for the widening of the Newell Highway between Coonabarabran and Narrabri through the Pilliga – known as the Pilliga Widening project. This project will ultimately reduce travel times, improve journey reliability and improve safety along the Newell Highway for road users.

CJC was engaged to provide constructability services in accordance with the PS Specifications. Specifically for Value Management which includes attendance and input into the 20% and 80% design value management workshops. Constructability which is a facilitation of a 20% and 80% design constructability workshops and the preparation of report following each session.

This includes a site inspection and the preparation of detailed construction staging drawings/traffic sections at for both design phases. Additionally, CJC will also provide a constructability review of the ARUP 20% and 80% design drawing set and produce a high-level construction program. A Construction Staging Strategy Report will also be prepared to summarise the above items and findings.

Stay tuned for more updates on this ongoing project!
