In the past 15 years, the company has
delivered some 1500 lane-kilometres of
motorway around Australia, including some
of the most complex sections of Australia's
transport network and through some of the
most challenging terrain and conditions.
Responsible for the delivery of
$6.5 billion worth of the national road
infrastructure in recent years, Abigroup's
success is derived from more than just
delivering on a brief; also from continually
innovating and providing its clients with a
solution, not just a service.
Some of the most important
infrastructure and construction projects in
the country have been delivered by Abigroup
and the company is poised to continue this
success into the future.
Despite the company's illustrious career
in the roads sector, Abigroup's National
Operations Director, John Kirkwood, is quick
to point out that the company is a leader in
more than just roads.

construction portfolios in the health sector,
where we are currently delivering the
Queensland Children's Hospital, Cairns

Millennium Institute's new Medical Research

John goes on to attribute the company's
success to a couple of core principles.

contracting that is unmatched in Australia.

construction plant and equipment fleets in
the southern hemisphere, operate our own
concrete paving yards and have our own
in-house expertise and blue collar workforce
-- providing the company with unbeatable
control over a project's critical path, no

Some of Abigroup's high-profile road
infrastructure projects that have been
completed or are under construction include:
D2G Ipswich Motorway upgrade, Banora

to Bulahdelah Pacific Highway upgrade,
Macleay River and Floodplain Bridge,
Hunter Expressway - Kurri Kurri to Branxton,
Albury Wodonga Hume Freeway project,
Woomargama Bypass, Peninsula Link and
Southern Expressway projects.
Abigroup's hands-on approach to
delivering infrastructure and rewarding and
encouraging innovation across its workforce
has supported the company's rise as a
leading provider of quality projects across
diverse disciplines. It has also led to the
growth of expert teams dedicated not only
to traditional core areas of engineering and
building, but also to key specialisations
including national rail, water, energy and
