The project will create contract work and job opportunities that involve working directly for the project or through subcontractors.

Construction work for this project includes, for example, tradespeople, labourers, truck drivers, plant operators, tree felling, planting and pest management (trapping, baiting, track cutting, maintenance, etc).

The project is also exploring a range of training and upskilling opportunities through HEB and Downer work programmes, as well as with government agencies.

Other opportunities include catering (on-site and for occasional events), site security, site deliveries and more.

There is also potential to support domestic ecotourism as a result of the enlarged and managed ecological protection.

Critically, the Bypass also provides our local communities with safe travel, job opportunities and increased business trade.
