A huge win for Bruce Highway Edmonton to Gordonvale (E2G) team

A Seymour Whyte joint venture — with John Holland and AECOM — delivering the Bruce Highway, Cairns Southern Access Corridor (Stage 3), Edmonton to Gordonvale (E2G) project has been named “Large Employer of the Year” at the recent Queensland Training Awards held in Cairns, Queensland, for achieving excellence in providing nationally recognised training to its employees.

Investing in training and development on the project has provided our people with lifelong skills to continue fulfilling careers in construction.

The team exceeded its QLD Training Policy targets by more than 230%, achieving more than 350,000 training hours.

Sixty-five apprentices/trainees, 14 of whom are First Nations People, now hold Certificates III and IV in Civil Construction, Electrotechnology, Engineering, Plumbing, Laboratory Techniques, Work-Health-Safety and Project Management.
