In Perth, Reinforced Earth designs and supplies 31,000 m² of TerraTilt® and TerraPlus® facing as part of the NorthLink West Australia road project.

In 2016, the city of Perth embarked on highway construction works intended to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population. This large-scale project, delivered by Main Roads WA and entitled NorthLink WA, provided the region with a safer and more extensive road network by 2019. Divided into three phases, NorthLink WA consisted in both upgrading existing links and the construction of new highways.

RECo Australia is designing and supplying TerraTilt® and TerraPlus® precast concrete panels. Having successfully completed its first mission in phase one, RECo Australia has won further contracts for the remaining two phases of the project:

Phase 1: Southern section: Guilford road to Reid Highway – completed
Design and supply of 3,500 m² of TerraTilt® facing panels on three bridges;

Phase 2: Central section: Reid Highway to Ellenbrook – work underway
Design and supply of 12,000 m² of TerraTilt® facing panels on ten bridges;

Phase 3: Northern section: Ellenbrook to Muchea – upcoming
Design and supply of 16,000 m² of TerraTilt® facing panels and TerraPlus® modular facing panels on several bridges and retaining walls.

About NorthLink Western Australia

Construction of NorthLink WA is now complete and provides a vital link between Morley and Muchea as part of the Perth-Darwin National Highway.

The project was WA’s biggest ever road initiative, servicing regional traffic movements to areas such as Kewdale, Malaga, Perth Airport and the CBD. At an road infrastructure investment of more than $1 billion, the project generated more than 7000 jobs.

The project delivered the following benefits:

  • Improved traffic flow and journey times for road users
  • Reduced driver frustration and congestion
  • Improved freight efficiency, relieving pressure on the Great Northern Highway through the Swan Valley
  • Improved amenity for the community, tourists and road users




Offering savings on equipment and costs, as well as in terms of time, Reinforced Earth® solutions once again prove their effectiveness and durability.
