Construction consortium, Downer, has announced it has been awarded road maintenance contracts by the South Australian State Government, worth approximately $420 million.


The various contracts will run over a maximum period of 13 years. The contract can also be extended for additional minor capital works if deemed necessary.


Commencing in November 2020, the agreements will have an initial seven-year period with two possible extensions in lengths of three years each.


Downer CEO, Grant Fenn, said the new contracts would result in Downer expanding the services it provides to DPTI as well as maintaining an enormous 8,000+ kilometres of roads in both South Australia’s Metropolitan region and Regional Northern area.


“Downer has been maintaining South Australian roads since 2003,” Mr. Fenn said.


“Currently, Downer is providing maintenance and emergency road services to DPTI, but under these new contracts Downer will also deliver a range of other services including maintenance of intelligent transport systems, management of third party works and minor capital improvements.”


Overall, Downer will deliver reliable road networks to ensure efficient and safe journeys and also provide opportunities for local service providers and suppliers to be employed as a result of the broader works.


Downer Group employs over 3,500 people in South Australia, which makes the company one of the state’s largest employers – this will prove crucial in the coming years as the state grapples with its coronavirus recovery.
