Snowy firm gets Hwy gig

NT News - - NEWS -

A COM­PANY work­ing on the pro­posed ex­pan­sion of the Snowy Hy­dro scheme has been awarded the de­sign con­tract to widen the Stu­art Hwy through The Gap in Alice Springs.

SMEC Aus­tralian Pty Ltd has been awarded a de­sign con­tract to look at how the Stu­art Hwy might be du­pli­cated through The Gap, given the restric­tions of ge­og­ra­phy, Abo­rig­i­nal sa­cred sites, her­itage sites, the Todd River and the Ade­laide-Dar­win rail­way line.

The Depart­ment of In­fra­struc­ture, Plan­ning and Lo­gis­tics said the pro­ject would con­sider all road users’ needs.
