About the Project

The West Gate Tunnel Project is a city-shaping project that will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge, provide quicker and safer journeys, and remove thousands of trucks off residential streets. The project will include:

  • Widening the West Gate Freeway from eight lanes to 12 between the M80 Ring Road and Williamstown Road;
  • Building a 2.8km eastbound tunnel and a 4km westbound tunnel under Yarraville;
  • Constructing a bridge over the Maribyrnong River providing an alternative to the West Gate Bridge;
  • Constructing an elevated road along Footscray Road to the Port of Melbourne;
  • Major new cycling and pedestrian paths.

Gender Diversity

We aim to maximise the potential of all our people. This means having an inclusive culture that values and sustains diversity and a work-life balance. To achieve this, we are focused on:

  • Embedding flexible work practices
  • Providing development opportunities for our women
  • Leaders championing and supporting our females to succeed
  • Actively looking to attract and promote women into non- traditional roles and putting support structures in place to help them succeed.

About the Opportunity

To support the delivery of the West Gate Tunnel Project we are looking for Site Engineers with Utilities (Gas, Water, Sewer, Power, Telecommunications) and Intelligent Transport System (ITS) experience to join us.

These roles will work across our East & West zone supporting the relocation of utilities and installation of gantries, poles, conduits, pits, electrical, communications, ITS devices and street lighting.

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Civil/Mechanical/Electrical Engineering.
  • Experience delivering works on Australian projects, ideally with a Tier 1 or 2 Contractor
  • Awareness of Health, Safety, Environment, Quality and Community
  • Construction White Card and skills in Microsoft Suite are essential.
