ACCIONA, as part of the Nexus Infrastructure consortium, today signed contracts with the Queensland  Government achieving contractual close for the delivery of the A$1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing.

Work on the project will start with detailed design, procurement and site establishment in the coming months with actual construction works expected soon after. Construction is expected to be complete in late 2018 after which Nexus  is contracted to operate and maintain the road for 25 years.

Nexus will now work closely with the Queensland Government to deliver the project on time and on budget.

The Toowoomba bypass project consolidates ACCIONA’s  business in Australia in renewable energy, infrastructure and water. he Spain-based multinational has invested more than A$650 million in renewable  energy projects in Australia and is currently executing road and rail projects valued at A$4.2 billion.

ACCIONA recently opened to traffic the A$1.5 billion Legacy Way tunnel in Brisbane as part of the Transcity consortium. Its  construction broke daily, weekly and monthly world tunnelling records and won a  number of accolades and awards. ACCIONA Australia also won the prestigious Lord  Mayor’s 2012 Award for Business Innovation, in recognition of its technical  excellence.
