Gocup Road

Project Overview

Gocup road is a 31km two lane rural road from the Snowy Mountains Highway at Tumut to the Hume Highway at Gundagai. The project involved extensive earthworks, constructing two overtaking lanes, widening and realigning the road and installing new pavements, drainage structures, safety barriers and two permanent bus stops along a 5.4-kilometre section of Gocup Road.

Ertech’s contract included the realignment of the Halfway S and Doctors Hill sections on Gocup Road, from 16.2km to 22.1km north of Tumut and a partial early works section (Cookoomooroo) on Gocup Road from 26.32km to 26.73km north of Tumut.
