Getting on with the next stage of Suburban Roads Upgrades

8 July, 2020Suburban Roads Upgrade Program


We’re streamlining the biggest suburban road upgrade program in Victoria’s history to boost our economy and create hundreds of jobs.

The $2.2 billion Suburban Roads Upgrade Program will be delivered using an innovative procurement approach to give local construction companies more opportunities to win contracts.

Twelve priority projects in Melbourne’s north and southeast will be progressively awarded to pre-qualified companies under this new approach.

The approach is modelled on the Level Crossing Removal Project – a collaborative model that delivers benefits for both local communities and industry, while providing certainty for the construction sector. It will support Tier 2, 3 and 4 companies access this work, creating more jobs and capacity in the construction sector.

We’ve consulted with smaller construction companies to understand how to best support their involvement in the Big Build program.

Construction companies will be pre-qualified following a tender process for work according to the scale and complexity of jobs – with work awarded based on past performance and value-for-money.
