Adelaide Brighton is to supply construction materials – including cement – to the Northern Connector Project: South Australia’s first major concrete road. The agreements with project contractor, Lendlease, cover the supply of ready-mixed concrete, cement, slag, aggregates and sand.

Total revenue from the contracts is expected to AUS$20 million of the next two years.

The AUS$985 million Northern Connector Project includes 15.5 km of freeway. The freeway will have three lanes in each direction and four interchanges. It is scheduled to open to traffic at the end of 2019.

According to Adelaide Brighton, supply of ready-mixed concrete has already begun. The supply of raw materials for the onsite concrete batch plant is expected to start in the next few months. The batch plant will be operated by Lendlease.

The supply of construction materials for the project will support Adelaide Brighton’s South Australian cement, concrete, and aggregates manufacturing operations, said CEO and Managing Director, Martin Brydon.
