Western Australia has seen a number of major infrastructure projects take shape over the last ten years and 2021 wasn’t any less disappointing. The extension of Tonkin Highway, the Forrestfield-Airport Link and Claremont Station upgrade are just a few of the local projects in Perth.
There is a large pipeline of projects continuing into 2022 and beyond, as the State Budget predicts the WA economy will grow 3.5 percent. View The Pipeline of statewide projects across all regions in WA for full details on projects, their budget and expected tenders dates.
KEE Group Getting Involved
KEE Group is a multifaceted civil support services provider based in WA and has been heavily involved in a number of projects spanning right across the state. KEE Hire, KEE Transport, KEE Surfacing and KEE Fuel are KEE Groups main service offerings.
Below are just a few of the projects past and present that KEE Group were awarded contracts for and what the scope of the business’s involvement entailed.
NorthLink WA 2 – Past Project
NorthLink WA 2 was a $417 million construction contract for Stage 2 of the project and covered construction of the Central Section of the Swan Valley Bypass between Reid Highway and Ellenbrook.
The new highway has taken a lot of the traffic from Great Northern Highway and has provided an efficient alternative freight route, whilst creating a safer environment for Swan Valley and Ellenbrook residents, businesses and tourists.
Project Scope: KEE Hire supplied heavy plant machinery to the North Link 2 Project between 3 October 2017 to 6 May 2019.
Project Scope: The scope of the project was to surface the 18km extension of Tonkin Highway and the contract ran from November 2017 to April 2019.
NEWest Alliance Ongoing Project
The NEWest Alliance, made up of CPB Contractors and Downer, is the preferred alliance to construct both the Yanchep Rail Extension and Thornlie-Cockburn Link. The first trains are expected to be running in 2022.
Scope of Projects:
- Supplied heavy plant machinery from 3 November 2020 to the NEWest Alliance Thornlie Line. This project is ongoing.
- Supplying heavy plant machinery from 18 August 2020 to the NEWest Alliance Yanchep. This project is also ongoing.
Client: CPB / Downer
Project Scope: Full depth asphalt either side of the new bridge on Ranford Road, creating an additional lane. This project began in October 2021 and is due to be completed in April 2022.
KEE Bundu Venture
In 2020, KEE Group established a ground-breaking joint-venture partnership with Bundu Contracting. Bundu Contracting, established in 2013 by Ivan Thompson, is a proudly 100% Aboriginal-company owner. Thompson is a Yawuru/Bunuba man whose roots can be traced back to WA’s First Peoples.
The joint venture was a major successful step for KEE Group’s as they cemented the businesses long-held commitment to providing real enterprise opportunities for Indigenous communities across Australia. Something that the entire team at KEE Group feels very strongly about.
Already KEE Bundu has won and completed significant contracts available to Aboriginal businesses, including fuel supply across the Thornlie-Cockburn Link and Yanchep Rail Extension projects as part of the METRONET.
Along with joining forces to create opportunities for indigenous communities, KEE Bundu has joined with Hale School Foundation to create the Hale KEE Bundu Indigenous Scholarship, set to commence in 2022. This is a unique opportunity to make a real difference to the life of a young indigenous student.
