NSW to reform management of road maintenance

New South Wales' Roads Minister, Duncan Gay, has announced the establishment of a Road Maintenance Reform Program Management Office, which will implement measures to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of road maintenance delivery across the State.

“We have a clear goal of improving the quality of urban and rural roads and to achieve this goal efficiently we need to improve the way we deliver road maintenance,” Mr Gay said. “The NSW Government currently spends $1.4 billion per annum on road maintenance activities on roads across the state and we want to get more ‘bang for our buck,’” he quipped.

“The Government has been examining the potential for greater contestability in the provision of road maintenance and the Commission of Audit recommended that a competitive tender for road maintenance in Sydney should be pursued.

“Evans and Peck won a tender to run the Program Management Office and over the coming 12 months will work with RMS to roll out road maintenance contestability across the Sydney metropolitan region.”
