Following the destructive floods that occurred over January of this year, Citywide’s regional infrastructure teams have been actively working around Victoria repairing the damage inflicted to the state’s various road arterial networks.
Moorabool Shire had been inundated with very heavy rainfall in the first few weeks of the year. Over 200mm of rainfall fell over much of the Shire resulting in flash flooding causing rivers to rise, and a number of roads to succumbe to flood damage.
Citywide was recently awarded a multi-million dollar contract by the Shire to perform much needed gravel resheeting and shoulder works on flood affected roads within the municipality. Encompassing approximately 50 kilometres of damaged roadway, the works commenced in November and are to be completed in the first quarter of 2012.
Commenting on the tender win, Citywide’s regional infrastructure manager Rob Thompson was pleased with the outcome. “Citywide has been operating in regional Victoria for nearly 10 years. I am glad that our teams were selected as the best provider of roads infrastructure maintenance and repair services to the shire.”
“Over the years, we have invested heavily onto our Victorian operations to ensure that Citywide is in a strong position to undertake projects both large and small. From our engineers to our road crews, our staff have all the training, equipment and resources to deliver outcomes of the highest quality at market competitive rates.
Additionally, I believe it’s our ‘can-do’ attitude that we bring to all projects that really differentiates us from our competitors. I look forward to working closely with Moorabool Shire to provide the local road users with a network free of damage that’s safe to travel on,” concluded Rob.
