Public transport projects and the redevelopment of Adelaide’s Festival Plaza were among the winners in South Australia’s Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards

A project that linked Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to Adelaide’s passenger train network was the biggest value winner at South Australia’s Civil Contractors Federation Earth awards.

Gateway South, a joint venture between Fulton Hogan and Laing O’Rourke, won the "greater than $75 million" project category at the CCF awards on September 17.

Adelaide Festival Plaza, completed by Delta Group, won the $30-75 million category and was recognised for causing no damage despite requiring five-storey deep earthworks in close proximity to the city’s arts precinct, Parliament and heritage buildings.

CCF South Australia CEO Rebecca Pickering praised the industry’s ability to keep delivering major projects during the pandemic.

"Our sector has forged ahead in challenging times and the degree of innovation and excellence demonstrated in these winning projects is testament to the quality operators in our sector," she says.

"A $17.9 billion infrastructure investment over the next four years means we are not slowing down anytime soon.

"The Earth Awards is an important opportunity to celebrate what our industry is capable of."

The Birkenhead Bridge replacement earned McMahon Services Australia the $2-5 million project value category prize

BMD Constructions was honoured for the South Eastern Freeway project, while Public Transport Project Alliance and McMahon Services Australia received their awards for the upgrade and replacement of the Meyer Road and Birkenhead bridges respectively.

Interflow and City of Onkaparinga were the other winner for their work on the Emergency Response Galloway Culvert Remediation.

All winners will be automatically nominated for the national Earth awards, which are due to be held in Canberra in November.
