Sector

TRANSPORT

The Barwon Heads Road Upgrade will add new lanes for 4 kilometres between Settlement Road and Reserve Road, remove a dangerous level crossing at Marshall, and upgrade intersections at Settlement Road and Breakwater Road. New traffic signals will also be constructed at Crows Road, Barwarre Road, Marshalltown Road and Reserve Road.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion on Barwon Heads Road – a crucial arterial link between Geelong, the Bellarine and the growing Armstrong Creek residential precinct.

The project is being delivered through a new partnership approach to road building contracts, that means major projects move from paper to pavement sooner and more easily.

The Barwon Heads Road Upgrade is jointly funded by the Australian and Victorian governments.  The project is expected to be completed in late 2023.

Bellwether were invited by Barwon Southwest Department of Transport to provide Construction Cost Estimating Services for a proposed roundabout at the intersection of Barwon Heads Rd, Black Rock Rd and Stacey’s Rd.

These works are planned to be constructed in the first half of next year (2022) so our rates needed to be reflective of this and in line with the current market.

What we delivered

Bellwether provided VicRoads with the following:

  • Schedule of Quantities
  • Class 2 Cost Estimate
  • Probabilistic P50/P90 cost estimates
  • Basis of Estimate Report

Key outcomes

Bellwether provided an independent review of the project documentation and preparation of a construction cost estimate. In addition, we were required to undertake quantity estimating for these works, to support the cost estimate.
