Ventia awarded incident response and maintenance service contract for Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway

From 1 July 2018, Ventia will provide incident response and maintenance services for the Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway.

Ventia will provide Transurban and its road users with a new, tailored service delivery model that builds upon Ventia’s existing maintenance contract on the Eastern Distributor and Cross City Tunnel.

Transurban’s Group Executive NSW Business, Kristine Cooney said Transurban values a high calibre operations and maintenance model to deliver customer satisfaction to its road users.

“It is important our motorists experience the best possible journey on our roads. This means our roads and tunnels must be operated and maintained to the highest possible standard.

Ventia do a great job at working with us to achieve this on our Eastern assets. With Ventia joining us at the Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway, our customers can expect an enhanced experience.”

Ventia’s Executive General Manager Asset and Infrastructure Services Peter Handel said Ventia is able to leverage operational efficiencies drawing on existing experience.

“Drawing on Ventia’s experience on other local transport contracts enabled us to deliver an approach that is tailored specifically to Transurban’s current and future requirements,” said Peter.

“Coupled with our existing committed relationship with the client, we developed a transparent and collaborative delivery model that also features cost efficiencies and streamlined processes.

“We bring our embedded approach to health and safety to the contract, road users and the local communities surrounding the Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway assets.

“We look forward to making the infrastructure work for those communities and sharing in Transurban’s vision to strengthen communities through transport.”

Motorists can expect a seamless transition when Ventia begin its maintenance services on the Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway on 1 July 2018, and incident response services from 1 October 2018.
