Contract awarded for Northern Territory road sealing

Five contractors have been awarded a $100 million contract for bitumen resurfacing works across road networks in the Northern Territory.

The businesses involved include Downer EDI Works, Boral Asphalt NT, F & J Bitumen Services, NT Bitumen and Asphalt, Top Coat Asphalt and Fulton Hogan Industries.

The bituminous road works will be carried out across the whole of the Northern Territory, including Central Australia, the Barkly, Big Rivers and Top End regions, and includes urban roads in Darwin, Palmerston and Litchfield.

The contract is split into a series of schedules and includes large asphalt works, large resealing works, smaller asphalt works such as footpaths and carparks as well as smaller resealing jobs.

The panel contract cuts red tape, saves businesses time and ensures asphalting, sealing and resealing works can be rolled out when and where they are needed while still ensuring all Territory businesses can tender for works.

NT Infrastructure Minister Joel Bowden said roads in the Territory were vital lifelines that connected communities, and provided work for Territorians and their families.

“The Territory Labor government is ensuring quick response time for roads that are damaged and impacted by weather events,” he said.

“Sealing roads across the breadth of the Northern Territory is a priority of the Territory Labor government and makes our roads safer for Territorians and visitors.

“We will continue to invest in our roads, to ensure we continue to improve year-round connectivity and unlock economic opportunities here in the NT.”
