In October 2016, Destination New South Wales (DNSW) and Supercars Australia announced Newcastle as the new location for the Supercars 2017 Grand Finale.
Abergeldie is proud to announce it has been awarded three zones of track preparation at a value of $10 million. Additionally we will be the major contractor tasked with preparing existing infrastructure for the race event and constructing a new section of pavement to compete the 2.6km race circuit. This project cements the relationships forged during Abergeldie’s involvement in the full eight years the V8s were held at Sydney Olympic Park. Works will include service relocations, service upgrades and pavement works. We commenced on site in late May 2017, and will be completed in readiness for the inaugural event, with the V8’s ready to hit Newcastle 24 November 2017.

Since our acquisition of the highly respected tunnelling and micro-tunnelling business Harker Underground Ltd in February, our New Zealand operations under the new company Abergeldie Harker Ltd have gone from strength to strength.
In March, we opened our head office in Newmarket, Auckland and have been steadily integrating the IT, financial and reporting systems into our overall management structure. This along with the employment of more than 14 new staff and rebranding our equipment has meant our first few months of operation have been very busy and dynamic.
We are currently completing numerous work in hand contracts in both the north and south islands. Additionally, we have won several new pipe-jacking contracts in the motorway corridor south of Auckland.
The wealth of tunnelling experience and knowledge held by the Harker staff combined with the broad infrastructure capabilities of Abergeldie has created an excellent foundation for providing support, management and construction of the projects proposed by NZ infrastructure owners in the coming decades, particularly in the water and transport industries.
