DM Roads as part of the Downer Group has continued our strong relationship with Regional Roads Victoria and the Department of Transport by being awarded the Hume Region Road Maintenance Contract


Under the contract which begins in February 2023, Downer will deliver routine maintenance, planned maintenance, defect and hazard rectification and emergency response services to more than 8,500 lane kilometres of road in Victoria’s Hume region, stretching from Mitchell Shire on the edge of metropolitan Melbourne to the north-east corner of the State.


The Chief Executive Officer of Downer, Grant Fenn, said the new contract would extend Downer’s strong partnership with the Department of Transport, maintaining more than 9,500 lane kilometres of State roads in Victoria.
