Full project details

Inspired by the 1836 shoreline, the iconic Barangaroo Headland Park project returned this unique foreshore area within the Sydney CBD to the public and completed the harbour foreshore walk from Woolloomooloo to the Anzac Bridge.

Laing O'Rourke was awarded the first contract in the delivery of the iconic Barangaroo Headland Park project, a programme or early works to ready the site for its transformation from industrial wasteland to public space.

Laing O’Rourke was contracted to deliver specialist civil works, including a sewerage bypass and stormwater diversion, bulk earthworks, sandstone extraction, foreshore prototype construction and site infrastructure.

Additional works included construction of a large reinforced concrete wall and tunnel structure, excavation of a 40,000 cubic metre quarry and the re-use of stone, and receiving and placing 175,000 cubic metres of fill on site.

Laing O'Rourke collaborated with the other Barangaroo South and Barangaroo Headland Park contractors to seamlessly launch this landmark project for Sydney Harbour, and also ran a significant Community and Stakeholder Relations programme in consultation with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority as these first works were planned and commenced.
