The Alliance is inviting local suppliers and contractors to register their interest to supply a variety of goods and services for the construction of a southbound overtaking lane near Gullifers Road, about 20 kilometres south of Forbes.

Goods and services required could include construction equipment, concrete supply and labour hire.

An online information session will be held:

  • When: Wednesday 21 October 2020
  • Time: From 5.30pm

Once you have registered the event details will be emailed to you.

To register your interest as a supplier and/or to attend the online information session please email by midday Wednesday 21 October 2020.

Registration to receive tender packages closes midnight Sunday 25 October 2020.

Initial work on this overtaking lane is due to start in December 2020 and is expected to take about six months to complete.

Project information

Transport for NSW has partnered with BMD and AECOM to form the Newell Highway Program Alliance.

The strategic partnership will deliver about 30 additional overtaking lanes in an estimated four years rather than the likely eight years it would take to fund and deliver this work using traditional procurement methods.

This innovative mode of delivery will result in a minimum of 45 kilometres of new overtaking lanes to improve safety, reduce travel times, allow more accurate travel planning and improve freight productivity.

The new overtaking lanes are expected to provide around 25 minutes of travel time savings along the length of the Newell Highway from the Victorian border to the Queensland border.

Once the overtaking lane is completed, road users on this section of the Newell Highway will experience an increase in road capacity and increased overtaking opportunities.

Other benefits of the project include:

  • improved safety for all road users
  • reduced travel times
  • more accurate travel planning
  • improved freight efficiency.

The project team will keep the community regularly informed as the work progresses.

Thank you for your understanding while we complete this important work.
