It is a long way from Pakistan to the Epping Road Upgrade but helping deliver safer, more-reliable travel is part of the journey for Donnybrook’s Sumaira Amanat.

Immigrating from Pakistan to Australia in 2017, Ms Amanat sought a career in construction and better education for her children.

Now she’s an environment advisor on the Epping Road Upgrade, working daily in her own neighbourhood.

Ms Amanat reflected on her career journey as the team celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8.

She works for McConnell Dowell, the construction partner helping Major Road Projects Victoria deliver the Epping Road Upgrade.

Regularly on-site, she helps ensure the project complies with its environmental plans and approvals to minimise impacts on the environment and community.

“I’m proud to be a woman working in construction to help the Epping Road Upgrade deliver its goal of safer and more-reliable travel for all the road’s users,” Ms Amanat said.

“Our team works hard to support a diverse and vibrant culture on the project. It’s a safe and respectful place for the team’s female members, who contribute to the upgrade in a wide variety of important roles.”
