Modernising Road Maintenance
DPTI will shortly release an Expression of Interest for the maintenance of South Australia’s 23,000 kilometre road network, the first step towards modernising the approach to maintaining the State’s road network.
The proposed delivery model builds on collaborations with industry that have been in place for more than 20 years.
It is expected that opening road maintenance activities across the State to competitive tendering will attract new investment, support local employment and local businesses, as well as drive value for money.
A key priority is to provide road users with reliable networks to ensure efficient and safe journeys.
