York Civil has cemented its position in New South Wales with the award of another major transport project.

The Northern Beaches Hospital Connectivity and Network Enhancement Project, to be completed in two stages, will improve traffic flow to the Northern Beaches through the Frenchs Forest area and facilitate access to the new Northern Beaches hospital, once constructed.

Stage 1 of the project, the Hospital Connectivity stage, comprises roadwork associated with intersection upgrades, widening and improvements to accommodate changed traffic conditions expected to be generated by the new Northern Beaches Hospital on Forest Way, Frenchs Forest Road and Wakehurst Parkway.

Stage 2, the Network Enhancement portion of the works, will encompass the main works associated with improving traffic movements along Warringah Road including a lowered road section for through traffic between Wakehurst Parkway and Forest Way. Stage 2 also involves the replacement of an existing pedestrian bridge and the construction of two new pedestrian bridge servicing the High School and shopping centre, and three post-tensioned overpass bridges at major intersections along Warringah Road.

The project will be delivered in time for the hospital opening in 2018.

Managing Director, Dominic Vieceli said, “York Civil is pleased to be partnering again with RMS for this important project for the Northern Beaches. The urban design solution complements the local forest setting and provides a gateway to the Northern Beaches. The construction staging and sequencing is critical to the success of the project, which must be constructed under live traffic of some 90,000 vehicles per day, and during construction of the new hospital.”

Having opened its New South Wales office in 2013, York Civil is currently delivering the Woolgoolga to Halfway Creek section of the Pacific Highway, and Stage 2 of the Schofields Road Upgrade projects.
