Contract won for Gocup Road upgrade

Roads and Maritime Services NSW has announced the successful tenderer to deliver the upgrade of Gocup Road between Doctors Hill and Halfway Hill to provide improved freight access and safety.

Ertech Pty Ltd will carry out the work on Gocup Road, which involves building two overtaking lanes, widening and realigning the road as well as installing safety barriers and two permanent bus stops.

A Roads and Maritime spokesperson has said the NSW Government has committed $70 million across five years to upgrade Gocup Road to provide improved freight access and safety for all vehicles, including $23.5 million in this financial year.

“The Gocup Road upgrades are a medium- to long-term action in the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan and the Murray-Murrumbidgee Regional Transport Plan,” the spokesperson said.

“The aim is to support more efficient high productivity vehicle access, particularly for the local timber and milling industry, while being sensitive to the area’s natural environment, heritage and local communities.

Work on the Doctors Hill to Halfway Hill section of the Gocup Road project will commence from early October, to be completed in June next year.

Since the wider Gocup Road upgrade began, six projects have been completed at Meadow Creek, South Minjary, Quidong, Smarts Road, Quidong Corner and Stuckeys Creek.
