2 December 2014
Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay and Member for Maitland Robyn Parker today announced Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd has been awarded the tender to build the eastbound overpass at the Maitland Railway Station roundabout.
Minister Gay said the NSW Government has committed $45 million to deliver the Maitland roundabouts upgrades.
“This government is determined to transform the Hunter, which is why we are getting on with the job of delivering infrastructure right across the region,” Minister Gay said.
The Maitland roundabouts upgrade on Church Street, near Maitland Railway Station and Hospital will improve traffic flow and increase capacity for future traffic growth in this busy area.”
Mrs Parker said the Maitland roundabouts upgrade was on track to be complete in 2016.
“Early work will start next month and Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd will build and overpass which will carry two lanes above the Church Street roundabout for eastbound traffic using the New England Highway and pass over flood plains north of the highway, at the eastern end of the bridge,” Mrs Parker said.
“The 430-metre long overpass, and approach, will connect in two sections of the New England Highway about 550 metres east and 400 metres west of the roundabout.
“I am so proud the NSW Government is delivering the infrastructure Maitland needs in order to build for the future of this great region.”
