Upward and Forward

It’s a second big win from down under! Gamuda Australia, in partnership with Ferrovial Construction, has been awarded by the New South Wales Government to deliver the AUD$1.35 billion (RM4.1 billion) Coffs Harbour Bypass, which is part of the Pacific Highway upgrade program on the Mid North Coast. The new highway will reduce travel time along Pacific Highway by 12 minutes, bypassing 12 sets of traffic lights. Planning and detailed design works will commence immediately with the Bypass expected to be open to traffic from late 2026 and scheduled to be fully completed in late 2027. 

We look forward to being part of this project that will reshape infrastructure connectivity across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane while boosting economic benefits for generations to come.

Extreme Space Facts 

Fastest Planet 

True to its namesake (the speedy messenger of ancient Roman gods), Mercury is the fastest planet in our solar system. It zips around our Sun at an average of 172,000 kilometres per hour — about 65,000 kph faster than Earth. A year on Mercury is equal to 88 Earth days.  

Forget the socks, bring a hat 

If you could stand at the Martian equator, the temperature at your feet would be like a warm spring day, but at your head, it would be freezing cold! 

Tiny, very tiny

The radio signal a spacecraft uses to contact Earth has no more power than a refrigerator light bulb and by the time the signal has travelled across space, the signal is only one-billionth of one-billionth of one watt! 

Sizzling Venus 

The average temperature on Venus is more than 480 degrees Celsius — hotter than a self-cleaning oven. 

It’s a small world after all

More than 1,300 Earths would fit into Jupiter’s vast sphere.
