A joint venture between Leighton Contractors and Opus International Consultants has been awarded a $191 million, five-year maintenance contract for the Wheatbelt South and Wheatbelt North regional road networks.

Transport Minister Troy Buswell said the Integrated Service Arrangement was the fourth such agreement to be awarded as current road maintenance contracts expire.

The remaining ISA contracts will be awarded by September.

"These new arrangements are more than just road maintenance contracts - they provide aspects of road network operations; operational asset management; maintenance delivery; some minor capital works (projects less than $3million in value); and project and contract management services," Mr Buswell said.

"The ISA selection process aimed to ultimately identify the best value from our private sector partners and considered which integrated service providers were most likely to form an effective collaborative relationship with Main Roads."
