Fredrickton-Eungai Highway Upgrade planting

Fredrickton-Eungai Highway Upgrade, NSW

The Australian and NSW governments jointly funded this $675 million project. The project provides about 27 kilometre highway upgrade from Frederickton interchange to Eungai Rail The Frederickton to Eungai section's major challenge was building across the long sections of the Collombatti floodplains. Some of the key features of this section of highway upgrade are the interchange at Stuarts Point Road and new rest areas at Clybucca. The new interchange provides safer access on and off the highway and improved access to local communities.

Bluedale supplied plants to our client for the highway upgrade, the specification called for a mix of native, strappy leaf grasses, wetland grasses, native shrubs and native trees.
