York Civil has been awarded the Early Contractor Involvement contract to create the long-awaited Adelaide EastLINK Tram Extension along North Terrace. The one-kilometre extension which was previously only hopeful conversation, is now a reality and is the beginning of the CityLINK, a loop around the Adelaide CBD, and also forms Stage One of the planned EastLINK tram renovations.
NSW Premier Mike Baird paid a visit to the Northern Beaches Hospital Network Connectivity and Network Enhancement project last week to discuss the benefits of the project, which is currently being completed by the Ferrovial York Joint Venture. Roads Minister, Duncan Gay, joined Mr Baird for the visit.
York Civil was a sponsor of the South Australian Rugby Union’s Rugby 7s Grand Finals, that were held at the Brighton Rugby Club on 26 and 27 August. Rugby 7s is a fast paced, up and coming sport, which debuted at the Olympic Games this year. This form of the game features seven players, instead of the traditional 15, and is played in seven-minute halves, compared to the traditional 40 minute halves.
York Civil has been awarded three new projects within South Australia:
- Margaret Dowling and Bank J Regulator Structures for SA Water in the Riverland
- Techport Common User Facility (CUF) Wharf Extension for Defence SA, and
- Adelaide Freight Terminal Office Upgrade for Asciano Executive Services.
