Project at a glance
About Fulton Hogan
Fulton Hogan has been in business for 90 years, and operating in Australia for over 40 years where we currently employ over 3,500 staff across the country, undertaking large scale infrastructure and civil engineering projects and programs of work across resources, transport, water, energy, telecommunications and defence sectors.
Transport for NSW have engaged Fulton Hogan to design and construct the Rankin Park to Jesmond section of the NCIB which will provide traffic relief to the existing route of Lookout Road, Croudace Street and Newcastle Road, which is currently used by about 40,000 to 60,000 vehicles each day.
When completed, motorists travelling north-south on the proposed section of bypass would avoid up to 11 sets of traffic lights along the existing route, which is expected to reduce travel times by up to 80 per cent during the morning and afternoon peaks.
The bypass will provide two lanes in each direction separated by a median, as well as three interchanges designed to improve traffic flow and increase connectivity:
- Northern interchange providing access to Newcastle Road and the existing Jesmond to Shortland section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass. The full interchange provides all movements to/from the bypass and Newcastle Road
- Hospital interchange providing access between the John Hunter Hospital precinct and the bypass. The half interchange provides access to/from the north
- Southern interchange providing access to Lookout Road and the existing Kotara to Rankin Park section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass. The bypass would travel under McCaffrey Drive. The half interchange provides connection in both directions on Lookout Road.
Fulton Hogan's scope of works includes design, enabling works, earthworks, drainage, pavements, bridge construction, utility service diversions, landscaping and finishing works. Fulton Hogan expect to procure in excess of 200No work packages associated with the project with the bulk of these packages being called for tender between August 2022 and February 2023.
