Main Roads WA


Main Roads, WA – Planning and Technical Services


Main Roads, WA, is one of the largest geographically spread road agencies in the world responsible for more than 18,400 kilometres of road spread over 2.5 million km2. Their role is to plan, build and maintain WA’s state road network which is valued at more than $46 billion.

Our task

Main Road’s Road Planning and Development branch was restructured to become a service provider to the rest of the organisation. Consulcad was engaged to provide commercial and engineering advice to develop and document the new business structure and four defined services.

What we did

Consulcad provided a combination of core process improvement and engineering skills enabling us to communicate at several levels and develop and validate a degree of detail beyond traditional process mapping.

The outcome

Our involvement resulted in:

  • Streamlined business process
  • The establishment of new service offerings
  • Centralised strategic planning and early project development
  • Alignment with Project Lifecycle and longer-term infrastructure planning

At the conclusion of the project, Consulcad transitioned to business as usual effectively, including the transition of some of our team into operations.
