Western Australia’s Great Eastern Highway Upgrade has beaten a strong field of major transport projects in other states to claim the Category 5 (for projects worth more than $75 million) Civil Contractors Federation National Earth Award.

The $280 million upgrade to one of Perth’s major arterial transport routes was delivered by Leighton Contractors as part of the City East Alliance and opened to traffic nine months ahead of the target date of December 2013

In its twentieth year, the Earth Awards recognises construction and environmental excellence in civil construction across Australia.

The judging criteria for the project covered environmental and social aspects of the project, as well as the construction practices and overall project management.

In August the project earned Western Australia its first Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia Infrastructure Sustainability rating.

Leighton Contractors Western Infrastructure General Manager, Peter Handel, said the company was building an enviable track record for delivering major roads infrastructure in Western Australia, citing the current Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access Project, the completed New Perth Bunbury Highway and Mandurah Entrance Road.
