InfraBuild Reinforcing helping drive construction of Westlink M7

InfraBuild Reinforcing (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing) played a key role in the construction of Australia’s largest-ever urban road: the 40km Westlink M7, supplying more than 40,000 tonnes of steel reinforcing for various parts of the project.

The missing link in Sydney’s orbital network of motorways, the M7 is a 40km dual-carriageway motorway between the M5/Hume Highway at Prestons and the M2 at Baulkham Hills. The massive project was built by a joint venture company comprising Abigroup and Leighton Contractors (ALJV).

Key construction features of the project were the erection of 144 bridges and the use of continuously reinforced concrete pavement for the roadway.
