Twelve of Victoria’s best civil construction projects have been revealed at the Civil Contractors Federations’ 2017 CCF Earth Awards.
Awarded across six categories, the awards recognise outstanding work in construction and environmental excellence. They are intended to reflect the development and use of the best technologies and practices by Australian civil contractors.
Among the awarded projects was the Burke-North-McKinnon-Centre Level Crossing Removal Project by a six-member consortium in Melbourne. The project involved removing four dangerous and congested level crossings, the demolition of existing train stations, the construction of four new modern train stations, and improvements of transport infrastructure. In a Victorian first, three level crossing removals were undertaken simultaneously on the same train line. The project received the award for ‘Project Value Greater Than $75 Million’.
“Once again, the CCF Earth Awards have demonstrated the world-class talent that Victoria’s civil industry has to offer” says John Kilgour, CEO of CCF.
“These awards also show that, with appropriate financial support from our state and federal governments, there is no limit to what our industry can produce to ensure we are able to develop the necessary infrastructure for our growing population.”
The Victorian 2017 CCF Earth Awards were announced at the Mural Hall in Melbourne on Friday 25 August. Winning projects will now progress to the National Earth Awards to be held in Canberra in November.
