A New Integrated Service Arrangement (ISA) started today for the Mid-West and Gascoyne Regions’ Road Networks.

Transport Minister Troy Buswell said that DownerMouchel, a joint venture comprised of Downer EDI Works and Mouchel International (Jersey) Limited (Australia Branch) was awarded the Mid-West and Gascoyne Regions’ ISA.

“This is the fifth of these relationship-based arrangements to be awarded as the current long-term road maintenance contracts reach their end.” Mr. Buswell said.

“These new arrangements are more than just road maintenance contracts they provide aspects of road network operations; operational asset management; maintenance delivery; some minor capital works (projects less than $3 Million in value); and project and contract management services.”

 

“The ISA selection process aimed to ultimately identify the best value from our private sector partners and considered which integrated service providers were most likely to form an effective collaborative relationship with Main Roads.” Mr. Buswell said.

To allow for optimum delivery of integrated services, the Mid-West and Gascoyne ISA will have an initial term of five years, with an approximate value of $226 Million, and the provision for extension if ongoing high-level performance is achieved by the provider.

The remaining three ISAs (Kimberley, Pilbara and Goldfields-Esperance) will be awarded in the next six months.
