South Road Urban Superway
A joint venture between MacMahon Contractors, Leed Engineering and John Holland, the Urban Superway involved construction of the $812 million South Road Superway project – the single biggest investment in a South Australian road project, and also the state’s most complex engineering road construction project to date. Designed to reduce traffic congestion and travel time at major road and rail intersections, the Urban Superway delivered a 4.8 kilometre non-stop highway corridor linking the Port River Expressway to Regency Road in Adelaide’s north, of which 2.8 kilometres is an elevated freeway. The project encompasses a long term plan to upgrade this road into a non-stop north to south route.
The role of Portolesi Structural was to patch culvert units, keeping up with the demand of the building project, ensuring continuous workflow of all trades. With a crew of 14 mobilised, our team were successful in delivering the project to specification and to deadline.
