Dowsing Concrete and Axiis Contracting will split an $18 million contract for concrete work associated with the Public Transport Authority’s bus stop upgrade program over the next five years.

Under the bus stop accessibility works program, the PTA aims to upgrade more than 600 bus stops each year to comply with disability standards.

The works typically include the installation of a bus stop pole or information module, and construction of a level concrete hard-stand passenger boarding area and up to three metres of connecting pathway to the existing footpath network.

The two local companies have each been given $9 million contracts over the next five-year period.

Dowsing Group was the incumbent contractor and has been completing the work since the program began about seven years ago.

Dowsing was recently awarded the slipform concrete barrier works contract by Great Northern Connect for the NorthLink WA stage two project.

The company also has footpath contracts with the Shire of Kalamunda and the Shire of Ashburton.

Axiis has footpath contracts with 10 local governments including Rockingham, Kwinana and Melville.
