The state government has announced Macmahon Contractors as the winner of a $187 million contract to maintain the road network in the Pilbara.
“This is the seventh and final of these relationship-based arrangements to be awarded as the current long term road maintenance contracts reach expiry,” Mr Buswell said.
“These new arrangements between private service providers and Main Roads WA are more than just road maintenance contracts - they provide operational asset management, maintenance delivery, some minor capital works (projects less than $3million in value), and project and contract management services.
“The ISA selection process aims to ultimately identify the best value for money from private sector partners and considers which integrated service providers were most likely to form an effective collaborative relationship with Main Roads WA.
Last month, Mr Buswell announced Abigroup Contractors had won a $95 million road maintenance deal for the Goldfields Esperance region.
And early in June, Mr Buswell announced a joint venture comprising Downer EDI Works and Mouchel International was awarded the contract for an initial five-year period, adding to its maintenance contracts for the Metropolitan and Gascoyne & Mid West regions.
Other winning proponents were Fulton Hogan, which will maintain roads in the South West and Great Southern region, and a consortium featuring Leighton Holdings, Leighton Opus, which will maintain the Wheatbelt's roads.
