Roading contracts extended

Ventia (NZ) Ltd and Fulton Hogan Ltd have had their contracts to manage Far North District Council roads extended by 12 months.

At the council’s April meeting, Ventia was awarded the council’s Southern Road Maintenance and Renewals Contract for a further year from 1 July 2024. Fulton Hogan was awarded the Northern Road Maintenance and Renewals Contract, also by one year from 1 July 2024.

The contracts include road surfacing, pavement rehabilitation, emergency response, drainage, grading, and potholing.

This contract extension will give council staff the necessary time to develop and procure new contract models that reflect the shifting priorities on the Far North’s roading network.

The Road Maintenance and Renewal Contracts, delivered by the Northern Transport Alliance (NTA), were initially set for a four-year term, with rights of renewal dependent on the contractors’ performance. The contract was previously extended for two years to 30 June 2024.

Both contracts have been factored into the council’s Long Term Plan budgets for 2024 and 2025.
