Roy Hill Aerodrome, Roads and Rail

Programme milestone dates were achieved with work being completed to a very high standard to meet Australian aviation standards.

BGC Contracting’s involvement with this iconic project commenced in 2011, when the group was awarded the Rail ECI contract, closely followed by the construction contract for an aerodrome and access roads for the Roy Hill Project, located south west of Port Hedland in Western Australia.

RAIL WORKS ECI CONTRACT

The Roy Hill Rail Joint Venture, which comprised of BGC Contracting, John Holland and Macmahon (RHRJV) was awarded the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract to work collaboratively with the client, Roy Hill Infrastructure, and key stakeholders to develop a suitable design and price for the construction of a 340km railway from mine to port and associated infrastructure including the formation of earthworks, bridges, culverts and rail mainline and marshalling yards.

The rail design and construction project value is in the order of $1.5 billion.

AERODROME AND ROADS CONTRACT

In 2010 BGC assisted Roy Hill in preliminary constructability and feasibility studies in the early stages of the project. Subsequent to this process BGC would go on to be awarded a major package of civil infrastructure work.

The contract involved the construction of the aerodrome, airport, village and mine site roads, and internal roads with an estimated contract value of $80 million.

The aerodrome and road works required 1.5 million m3 of cut to fill earthworks and cement stabilised pavements of 300mm depth. Sealing, line marking and road signage was also installed as part of the project. Programme milestone dates were achieved with work being completed to a very high standard to meet Australian aviation standards.

BGC was subsequently awarded another contract for the Roy Hill Project through lead contractor Samsung C&T after the completion of the infrastructure works. This contract is to progress Package 3 – Port Landside.
