RoadTek awarded contract for road maintenance


Queensland Government's construction arm RoadTek awarded contract to maintain freight and road corridors

The Queensland Government’s construction arm RoadTek has been awarded the contract to maintain a number of major freight and road corridors in south-west Queensland.

Main Roads awarded the $1.1 million contract to RoadTek, which will complete a number of maintenance works.

Main Roads Minister Warren Pitt says the funding will be used to seal potholes and rough edges, clear drains, erect signs, repair road surface failures and slash roadside vegetation.

"South-west Queensland roads are subjected to harsh weather and traffic conditions and road surfaces can deteriorate if they are not addressed in a reasonable time period," Pitt says.

"This funding will help preserve road conditions by addressing minor maintenance issues before they become a cause for real concern."

Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese says the contract will help maintain vital key roads in the region.

"Preservation and maintenance of Queensland's major highways and road corridors, including key areas such as the south-west, is of importance to both the federal and state governments," Albanese says.
