DM Roads awarded integrated services contract by Transurban

Contract includes maintenance and incident response for Melbourne’s iconic CityLink and new West Gate Tunnel

DM Roads is delighted to announce it has recently been awarded a flagship contract by Transurban to provide maintenance and incident response for one of Australia’s busiest networks.

DM Roads will work collaboratively with Transurban to maximise benefits for road users by ensuring safe and reliable journeys and enhanced traffic flow in Melbourne. The contract will positively impact communities throughout Melbourne, creating multiple new positions and providing valuable opportunities for local businesses.

The contract will officially commence on 1st July 2022 for an initial duration of five years.

Under the contract, DM Roads will be responsible for rapid incident response across part of Melbourne’s road network, including CityLink, along the West Gate Freeway, West Gate Bridge to the M80 interchange, and the West Gate Tunnel once opened, with dedicated vehicles staged around the network to ensure fast response times.

DM Roads will also undertake scheduled tunnel closures to keep the CityLink network at a high standard and safe for drivers while minimising disruption to local communities and will provide routine maintenance of roadside assets, vegetation management and maintenance of intelligent transport systems (ITS).

As an industry leader in sustainability, DM Roads will work with Transurban to achieve shared sustainability goals to address some of Australia’s most important social and environmental challenges, such as creating a waste net-positive network utilising Repurpose It to convert waste into resources.

DM Roads is also committed to directing at least 20% of the value of specialist activities or surge requirements to local social enterprises, indigenous businesses and small to medium enterprises and over 15% of contract labour hours will be worked by Victorians from disadvantaged or underrepresented backgrounds.

Commenting on the major contract win, DM Roads Mobilisation Lead Alan Dinsdale said, “We have an incredibly talented and specialised team at DM Roads, naturally we are highly confident in our internal capability to deliver large-scale integrated services given our successful NorthConnex partnership with Transurban. Approximately 99% of our delivery team will be directly employed by DM Roads and we are wholly committed to recruiting and reinvesting locally to deliver value for the Victorian economy.”
