The Great Northern Highway Muchea to Wubin project has achieved an ‘Excellent’ IS Design Rating under the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia’s (ISCA) Infrastructure Sustainability Rating Scheme. The program of works was the first full infrastructure program to be assessed under the IS Rating Scheme.

The ‘Excellent’ IS Design Rating recognises the joint efforts of the integrated project team of Jacobs, Arup and Main Roads to design for best practice outcomes in sustainability.

“The integrated project team identified sustainability opportunities throughout the program and to implement them into the delivery contracts. These were construct only contracts and it was the first time Main Roads had written sustainability requirements into that form of contract,” Project Director, Norm Fox said.

Rating highlights for the project include materials, ecology, water, management systems and community health and wellbeing.
