The Fleurieu Connections Alliance, a consortium of CPB Contractors, Aurecon and GHD, in association with the South Australian Department for Infrastructure and Transport, has been awarded the contract to deliver the Victor Harbor Road Duplication and Main South Road projects.
The $560 million project, funded by the Australian and South Australian governments, will reduce congestion and traffic bottlenecks while boosting safety and economic growth in the Fleurieu region.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said the project would support 770 full-time jobs each year during construction.
The consortium of CPB Contractors, Aurecon and GHD has been involved in constructing several major road projects in South Australia, including the Port Wakefield Highway Overpass and Highway Duplication.
The project includes duplication of Main South Road from Seaford to Aldinga, a ‘2+1’ lane road layout from Aldinga to Sellicks Beach and duplication of Victor Harbor Road between Main South Road and the start of the left turn into McLaren Vale.
Additional safety treatments along Victor Harbor Road, including an overtaking lane at Hindmarsh Valley, also form part of the works.
A planning study will also be undertaken to investigate the preferred solution for Victor Harbor Road between Main Road, McLaren Vale and Tatachilla Road and to Willunga Hill.
CPB Contractors managing director Jason Spears said the company was proud to be part of the Fleurieu Connections Alliance. The Alliance contract will generate revenue to CPB Contractors of approximately $314 million.
Works are expected to commence soon for completion in 2024. To find out more about the project, visit www.dit.sa.gov.au

Main South Road
Duplication of Main South Road, from Seaford to Aldinga, including a grade separation (overpass) at the intersection of Tatachilla Road and Maslin Beach Road, a grade separation at the intersection of Port Road and a dual lane roundabout at the Main South Road and Aldinga Road junction.
Upgrade of Main South Road, from Aldinga to Sellicks Beach, with a ‘2+1’ lane road layout and associated road treatments that address safety issues and future capacity of Main South Road. A ‘2+1’ lane road layout consists of two lanes in one direction and one lane in the other, alternating every few kilometres.
Further design work will be undertaken over the coming months to develop the design for Stage 2. There will be an opportunity for community to provide input once the design has been developed.
Victor Harbor Road
Victor Harbor Road, between Main South Road and the McLaren Vale turn off, will be duplicated with additional safety treatments along Victor Harbor Road (including an overtaking lane at Hindmarsh Valley).
In addition, a planning study to investigate the preferred solution for Victor Harbor Road between Main Road, McLaren Vale and Tatachilla Road and to Willunga Hill will be undertaken.
