York Civil continues to build on its project portfolio with the recent announcement of two more contract awards.

The Adelaide Freight Terminal, located in Regency Park in South Australia, was constructed in the 1980s and, with the exception of minor changes, has not been upgraded or refurbished since. Much of the infrastructure is now showing signs of ageing and distress, with the degradation of many sections posing threats to safety. York Civil has been contracted to undertake repair works to meet the current and future needs of the Terminal and minimise safety risks. Works involve construction of heavy duty pavements, drainage, electrical installation works and lighting, installation of utility conduits, and line marking and signage.

Strengthening our position in Western Australia, York Civil, in a joint venture with Marine and Civil, has been awarded the Fremantle Road and Rail Bridge Strengthening project for Main Roads Western Australia. This project involves the construction of new protection measures on the traffic and rail bridges against future collisions. The traffic bridge will have 62 piles repaired, and the existing timber fender system will be reinforced with new metal structures. At the rail bridge, concrete dolphins will be constructed in-river to absorb significant force, involving on water construction methodologies using barges and specialised safety management processes.

Works on the two bridges are being completed concurrently to minimise disruption and to realise significant cost savings.

With the start-up of several projects underway, and a number of post tender discussions in progress throughout Australia, things are continuing to look up for York Civil in its 25th year in operation.
