The Ventia Boral Amey Joint Venture team were the quiet achievers during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, working to ensure minimal road network disruption for over 6,000 athletes and more than half a million spectators.
The event provided an opportunity for our Transport team to work on one of the most robust and complex traffic management plans Ventia had ever participated in.
Working for close to two years with the Queensland State Government and Games authorities, the team prepared for all traffic scenarios. This detailed planning, paired with learnings from the Sydney Olympics, meant they provided expert advice and high calibre service to the client.
During the event, 126 incidents were safely cleared in an average of 22 minutes, due to the instant deployment of our crews who worked closely with police, fire and ambulance agencies. The team’s strong performance at keeping traffic moving seamlessly was also captured by over 170 remote CCTV cameras.
The outstanding professionalism demonstrated well past the closing ceremony has enhanced Ventia’s reputation for delivering high calibre services in challenging circumstances, and this was recognised by some of Queensland’s most senior officials, including the Minister for Transport
