Ventia’s Executive General Manager, Infrastructure Services Gordon Taylor says Ventia continues to build a reputation in Western Australia for delivering to a high standard and exceeding community expectations.

“We are proud to provide key services to one of the largest geographically spread road agencies in the world, which covers 2.5 million square kilometers,” said Gordon. “Additional work such as this in the Wheatbelt region further reflects our commitment to the state of Western Australia, in line with our focus on delivering great outcomes for West Australians.”
 
Ventia completed similar overlay works for the York-Merredin Upgrade in the Wheatbelt in 2017, helping deliver essential safety upgrades as part of the government’s Regional Road Safety Package. 

Through our contracts with Main Roads, in addition to reliable service delivery and cost savings, Ventia also provides an enhanced focus on local job creation, Aboriginal participation and engagement with Western Australia’s community groups and businesses.
