WSP APPOINTED AS INDEPENDENT REVIEWER AND ENVIRONMENTAL AUDITOR JOINT TEAM FOR WEST GATE TUNNEL

WSP are helping to build a sustainable, thriving future for Melbourne with the award of Independent Reviewer and Environmental Auditor contract on the West Gate Tunnel Project (formally the Western Distributor) in collaboration with Arcadis as project lead and APP.

 

The city-shaping project includes a proposed tunnel and elevated motorway that will connect the West Gate Freeway with the Port of Melbourne, CityLink and the CBD. It will provide an alternative river crossing and ease pressure on the West Gate Bridge. It also includes widening of the West Gate Freeway with four additional lanes 

Working for our clients the Western Distributor Authority and Transurban, Arcadis is the project lead and WSP is working with them and APP to perform the verification role.

WSP Client Director for Victoria, Tim Gosbell, explained the importance of the project in supporting the building of a high-quality, sustainable transport network for Melbourne’s growing city.

’This project will provide quicker and safer journeys, better access to the Port of Melbourne, take trucks off residential streets and take pressure off the West Gate Bridge.’

‘Our role on the project is to ensure that the project requirements are delivered and that all Victorians get an asset that lasts for 100 years’.

‘It’s an exciting time for WSP as we take on more of these quality assurance roles across Australia, and work together with our clients to ensure our transport infrastructure is responsive to future trends and challenges.’ Concluded Mr Gosbell.
