In 2013 we secured our first contracts in Australia. The Queensland government commissioned us for a road infrastructure contract worth up to £80M (A$135M), while in New South Wales we were awarded a highways stewardship maintenance contract worth around £415M (A$700M).
We are delivering the contracts in joint venture with leading Australian infrastructure companies; Leighton Contractors and Boral Construction Materials. The joint venture offers 30 years of network management experience and brings together Amey’s recognised international asset and network management expertise together with Leighton and Boral’s local knowledge and experience.
Under the five-year Road Asset Management Contract (RAMC) for the South Coast Region of South East Queensland the joint venture maintains and improves over 1000 kilometres of network, including over 650 kilometres of state and national roads. The network stretches from the south of Brisbane’s metro district to the New South Wales border, and includes the Gold Coast where the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held.
The contract scope extends to asset management, including identification and design of improvement schemes, delivery of programmed and rehabilitation schemes, routine maintenance and 24/7 incident response.

The seven-year Stewardship Maintenance Contract with state government agency Roads and Maritime Services is one of the largest roads contracts of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Together with Leighton and Boral we manage, maintain and improve the road network in Sydney’s South Zone (with an option for works in the North region).
The contract includes nearly 2,000km of roads, 237 bridges and eight tunnels and stretches from the south of Sydney’s metropolitan district to the Sutherland National Park. It incorporates the key routes to Sydney Airport and the shipping lines of Botany Bay.
