Ventia has secured further work with client Main Roads Western Australia in the form of two key pieces of work, as we continue to demonstrate value as a reliable and cost-efficient partner. 

Works on the Toodyay Road upgrade north-east of Perth and the construction of a road train assembly area and overtaking lane in the Pilbara region will both commence in January 2020. 

Ventia’s Transport team in Western Australia will deliver works on the Toodyay Rd upgrade including:  

  • Widening, overlay and sealing of approximately 1km of road
  • Construction/ reconstruction of embankment, subgrade, subbase, basecourse, primer and seal including clearing / grubbing
  • Installation of culverts and construction of all ancillary drainage works
  • Installation of road furniture (guard rail, road signs, road guide-posts, pavement markings)

Work in the Pilbara will include:

  • Construction of a road train assembly area on Madigan Road
  • Construction of an overtaking lane on the Northwest Coast Highway 

Ventia’s Executive General Manager, Infrastructure Services Gordon Taylor says Ventia’s capabilities in the Transport sector have helped us build a strong road maintenance presence in Western Australia.

“Our team in WA have deep network knowledge, having delivered consistently for Main Roads for a number of years now,” Gordon says.

“Our collaborative local procurement and engagement, and our understanding of how important our role in the broader region is to the facilitation of the state’s economic sustainability, continues to add value.”

Tony DiFelice, Ventia’s WA Business Development Manager and the former Maintenance Manager on our Pilbara ISA contract, says "Ventia's approach to buying local and supporting Aboriginal businesses will maximise the local economic benefits from these capital works.”

Reinforcing this commitment, Alison Coffey, Regional Manager WA added, "Ventia is continuing to do great things for our community. We launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan this year and have been steadily providing greater employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal people.” 

“Projects such as these allow local people to build the infrastructure that supports their communities."
