On 3 April, 2017, the consortium formed by John Holland and CPB Contractors have been preferred for the West Gate Tunnel Project by Transurban in Victoria, the total project value is AUD 5,500 million and John Holland occupies 50% share. The West Gate Tunnel is the largest project John Holland has secured to date and is an example of the success of our strategy to drive sustainable, managed growth across the organisation.

West Gate Tunnel Project is proposed to the Victoria government and ultimately developed by Transurban, the prestigious Toll Road Operator in Australia with the aim to divert the heavy traffic in Melbourne city and the nearby Port and help mitigate the traffic congestion in the area. The scope of the project includes:
Widening the West Gate Freeway from eight lanes to 12 between the M80 Ring Road and Williamstown Road; Building a 2.8km eastbound tunnel and a 4km westbound tunnel under Yarraville; Constructing a bridge over the Maribyrnong River providing an alternative to the West Gate Bridge; Constructing an elevated road along Footscray Road to the Port of Melbourne; and Major new cycling and pedestrian paths.

The project represents a significant addition to our pipeline of work and job creation opportunities over the next 5-7 years while also continuing the momentum of recent project wins. These successes are a reflection that our growth strategy, and the investment in the business from our owner, CCCI, are already paying off. Particularly pleasing is the fact the result highlights the strength of our multi-sector offering across Infrastructure and the breadth of our expertise and capabilities. It also demonstrates the success we can achieve through a customer-focused, collaborative approach when the different parts of our business work seamlessly together.
