The state government of Western Australia has awarded a contract to the Mitchell Extension Joint Venture (MEJV) to deliver the A$215m ($162m) Mitchell Freeway extension in Western Australia (WA).
MEJV is a consortium of BMD Construction and a building and civil construction company Georgiou Group.
The freeway extension begins from Hester Avenue in Clarkson to Romeo Road in Alkimos and is expected to improve safety and reduce the travelling time from the Narrows Bridge to Alkimos.
Additionally, it will reduce the congestion on the freeway and local road networks within the outer northern suburbs of Yanchep, Butler, Alkimos, Eglinton and Nowergup.
The government said that the major construction works at the project is expected to commence early next year, with completion planned for late 2022.
