Major works on the $985 million project are expected to begin within months, delivering about 480 jobs a year during construction. Through the tendering process, Lendlease was required to detail how it would maximise the opportunities for local workers and businesses in its supply-chain to capitalise on this almost billion dollar investment.
Approximately 6,500 tonnes of reinforcing steel and approximately 1000 tonnes of structural steel for the project are expected to be sourced from Arrium in Whyalla.
The Northern Connector is part of the 78-kilometre North-South Corridor, stretching from Gawler in the north to Old Noarlunga in the south.
