e Southern Way consortium, com-
prising Abigroup, Bilfinger Berger and
the Royal Bank of Scotland, has been con-
tracted to build the new road and operate
it for a period of 25 years.
e project is being delivered toll-free
under the Availability Public Private Part-
nership (PPP) model. Southern Way will
nance and build Peninsula Link and when
the road is operating the Victorian govern-
ment will make quarterly payments based
on an availability charge.
Bilfinger Berger Services has been
awarded the 25-year operations and main-
tenance contract for the road following
completion of construction. e company
will take over operation of the freeway from
Southern Way consortium in the rst half
Bil nger Berger Services will be respon-
sible for the total maintenance require-
ments of Peninsula Link, will manage
major refurbishments of the freeway as
required and will provide road monitor-
ing and high-standard incident response
services 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.
e freeway is expected to bene t more
than 250,000 people living in Frankston
and the Mornington Peninsula as well as
tourists visiting the area.
e freeway has been estimated to allow
people to travel from Carrum Downs to Mt
Martha in just 17min, saving up to 40min.
e Linking Melbourne Authority will
oversee the project delivery through to its
completion in early 2013.

from four to six lanes between
Nerang and Worongary in southeast
Queensland was selected last month,
clearing the way for work to begin.
is $158 million road widening proj-
ect is to be constructed by Fulton Hogan.
It is one of the busiest sections of the mo-
torway on the Gold Coast, carrying about
100,000 vehicles per day.
Queensland department of main roads
said the aim of the upgrade is to reduce
tra c congestion by increasing the capac-
ity of the motorway through the addition
of one extra lane in both directions. Safety
through the area will be increased through
the addition of concrete barriers to sepa-
rate opposing tra c ows. A complete
resurfacing of the existing pavement will
also be carried out. On and o -ramps at
the Worongary interchange will be length-
ened and better lighting and improved
drainage will be installed.
e project aims to ease tra c conges-
tion and is expected to be completed in the
rst half of 2012.
It represents the latest stage in a
$420 million commitment to upgrade
a key section of the motorway between
Coomera and Varsity Lakes in southeast
Queensland. Other stages include the
completed upgrade of the Nerang South
Interchange last August, the Mudgeeraba
Interchange upgrade which is expected
to be completed midyear and the Varsity
Lakes Interchange upgrade which is ex-
pected to be completed by late 2010.
"With 2000 people moving to
Queensland each week, it s important to
build better infrastructure and to come up
with sensible, workable solutions so that
Queensland can continue to thrive," state
main roads minister Craig Wallace said.
