Project Delivery


Monteath & Powys have significant experience of working with TfNSW (formerly RMS) and the management of planning, design, procurement, and delivery of new infrastructure on the NSW State road network.

Our most recent project was the new $3.5 million intersection of Nelson Bay Road and Seaside Boulevard, that completed the second and final connection of the Fern Bay Seaside development distributor road to the state road network Main Road 108.

The intersection project required the provision of:

  • New left turn deceleration and acceleration lanes along Nelson Bay Road.
  • Medians to prevent right turn in and out movements.
  • Extension of Seaside Boulevard.
  • Significant clearing and earthworks in acid sulphate soils.
  • Intersection lighting.
  • Provision for on road cyclists.

Works for the project were managed through RMS Works Authorisation Deed (WAD) processes from initial consultation through design management, environmental approvals, stakeholder management, tendering, Contract administration and construction supervision to asset handover.

Monteath & Powys were integral in ensuring the project’s success. Key activities included liaison with RMS and the survey and design team to develop the initial strategic plan which enabled clear direction for concept and detailed design preparation. Critical analysis of returned contract tenders and proposed earthworks methodologies ultimately saved significant time and cost in delivering the works for the Client.

Our expertise and understanding all aspects required to deliver projects of this nature allows Monteath & Powys to add significant value through streamlining the process and delivering the best solutions.
