This exciting project will see the finalisation of infrastructure construction as part of the NEXUS Industrial Precinct, including the much anticipated Davey Road interchange.
In 2019, the NSW Government agreed to contribute $9.9 million to critical infrastructure works as part of the Regional Growth Funds’ Growing Local Economies, funded from the Restart NSW Fund.
The project consists of the construction of the Davey Road interchange, gas reticulation, sewer augmentation and subdivision, important steps towards ensuring the future of the transport, logistics, and manufacturing hub.
The contribution made by the NSW Government is in addition to funding from Albury City and $7.9 million in funding from the Australian Government for the Davey Road interchange.
The 450-hectare site at Ettamogah has been transformed over the last 10 years and has eleven remaining lots for sale in Stage 1. This project is expected to generate $1.5 billion in gross regional product for the Albury regional economy annually and create 9,400 local jobs over the next 30 years and beyond (AEC Group Nexus Industrial Precinct Enabling Infrastructure - Economic Analysis, 2018).
Davey Road interchange works are currently in the detailed planning stage with the Review of Environmental Factors currently in progress. The construction of the Davey Road Interchange is scheduled to commence in December 2020 with completion by December 2021. These highly anticipated works involve building a northbound off-ramp and southbound on ramp at Davey Road which enables freight and logistics greater access to the NEXUS Industrial Precinct.
A contract for gas reticulation is currently in place with Australian Gas Networks for the mains extension works to supply to the NEXUS Industrial Precinct. Works are expected to be completed by March 2021.
Sewer augmentation and subdivision works are now complete with work undertaken by Longford Civil. This involved micro tunnelling and pipe jacking to ensure the industrial lots have adequate sewer capabilities.
