Two construction companies, McConnell Dowell Constructors (Australia) Pty Ltd and CPB Contractors Pty Ltd, have been shortlisted to take part in a competitive Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) process to develop their designs and construction methods for the new Bridgewater Bridge.
The reference design for the new bridge was released for consultation during October and November 2020, with more than 2,500 people visiting the project’s interactive map over the month-long consultation period. The final design will evolve through the competitive design process.
A contract is expected to be awarded to one of the shortlisted companies in late 2021 and a detailed design for construction will be finalised soon after that, ready for construction to start in 2022.
