eTool have been engaged by John Holland to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the NorthLink WA Southern Section project to help quantify and improve the environmental performance. The LCA is being used by John Holland to assist design, procurement and construction processes and it will provide evidence for multiple credits for the IS certification with ISCA (Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia).

John Holland is working in partnership with Main Roads WA to upgrade Tonkin Highway, from Guildford Road to Reid Highway, to a freeway-standard with three lanes in each direction, new interchanges at Collier Road and Morley Drive and a flyover at Benara Road. The $1.12 billion (The Southern Section is worth $180M) investment in NorthLink WA will reduce travel times and congestion, and provide significant productivity benefits. Construction of the Southern Section starts Autumn 2016 with expected completion in early 2018.
Operations Environment & Sustainability Manager, Patrick Ilott, said the John Holland project team and Main Roads are using the LCA to help make better informed decisions, considering the full 100 year design life of the project, in order to achieve better outcomes for the project and in turn the environment, the community and the economy.
