Amey has won a second major contract in Australia, just a week after securing its first significant commission there.
New South Wales state government agency Roads and Maritime Services has awarded Amey and its Australian joint venture partners Leighton Contractors and Boral Construction Materials a £415M seven-year road asset management and maintenance contract.
The award comes a week after Queensland Government Department Transport and Main Roads awarded the same JV a road infrastructure contract worth up to £80M.
Amey has a 22% stake in the JV which combines its international asset and network management expertise with Leighton and Boral’s local knowledge and experience.
In New South Wales it will manage, maintain and improve the road network in Sydney’s south region, with an option for works in the north region. The network includes nearly 2,000km of roads, 237 bridges and eight tunnels.
It incorporates the key routes to Sydney Airport and the shipping lines of Botany Bay.
