Boundary Road Upgrade


Fraser Coast Regional Council


Kawungan, Qld 4655


$18M est.


ESQ were engaged through a Local Buy contract to provide engineering services which included the designing of a new four lane road extension from Kawungan Way to Denman Camp Road.

The project is required to accommodate for future growth in the area. The extension will become a major link to the Hervey Bay Airport and Marina, relieving congestion on Boat Harbour Drive and reducing travel times.

Through consultation with Council a revised concept design was approved that provided cost savings for this 2.0km brown field arterial road connection
