CPB Contractors and Major Road Projects Victoria

The M80 Upgrade widened 5.7 kilometres of the M80 Ring Road between Sydney and Edgars roads, adding additional lanes, ramps, collector distributors, and a smart freeway system – all in and around live traffic flows of 165,000 vehicles per day.

Clever technical solutions and a strong innovation and sustainability culture saw the project completed a year ahead of schedule and substantially under the client’s budget.
