Main Roads Term Asset Contract No.1 (Rural)

Main Roads WA manages more than 17,800 km of national roads and major highways, representing the arterial road network in Western Australia. Having completed road and bridge construction contracts in the past for Main Roads WA, BGC Contracting was awarded a Term Asset Contract for Rural Structures in 2000.

TERM ASSET CONTRACT STRUCTURE (RURAL)

The Term Asset Contract covered the repair, refurbishment, rehabilitation, reconstruction and construction of “Structures” (bridges, culverts and pedestrian overpasses and underpasses) over a 3 year period on Main Roads and Local Government roads.

The contract was divided into three packages of work with a crew dedicated to each. Sites were located throughout Western Australia.

During the work, only half of the bridge/road thoroughfare was closed with appropriate management to maintain traffic flow and lower the impact to surrounding communities. Internal and external road safety audits were also conducted regularly on each site.

The contract was divided into three packages of work with a crew dedicated to each. Sites were located throughout Western Australia.

Liaising with environmental authorities was an integral part of the contract, especially CALM in dieback affected areas. An Environmental Management plan was created, containing an “Impacts Management Strategy Table”, to address a wide range of environmental issues. Environmental Hazard Analysis (Screening and Assessment) was also utilised on the project, and improvements were implemented to minimise any effects on the environment.

All repairs, refurbishment and construction works were successfully carried out under the BGC Quality System in accordance with AS/NZS ISO 9002:1994 and the requirements of MRWA specifications. The work completed benefited the client through extended life of bridge / culvert structures and improved safety of the structures.

Apart from this contract, the Great Northern Highway project, the Northam Bypass Project, and Term Network Contracts No. 1 and No. 2 are further demonstrations of successful scopes of work that BGC Contracting have been awarded with Main Roads WA.
