Share This Post


As the state road authority for one of the most widely geographically distributed road networks in the world, Main Roads WA builds and maintains a road transport network of over 18,500 kilometres and manages more than $41 billion of assets.
Challenges to Main Roads’ business activities were the result of a substantial increase in population (at the time WA had the fastest growing population in the country), a changing workforce profile, increased mining activity due to a growing resources economy and a prospering tourism sector.

There was a pressing need for greater access, safety and efficiency of road transport across the state and Main Roads needed to deliver more than $5.5 billion in services over a four year period including $1.7 billion of capital works.
Consulcad was engaged to review project and program management processes within Main Roads and design, develop and implement a Program Management Office (PMO) and an Enterprise Program Management (EPM) tool.

How we solved it  

Consulcad worked with Main Roads through each stage, from concept to development, and delivery into operations.

  • We designed, developed and implemented a Program Management Office (PMO) and an Enterprise Program Management (EPM) tool.
The outcome  

Our involvement resulted in a raft of improvements including:

  • Greater reporting.
  • Identification of cost savings.
  • Better decision-making capability.
  • Processes for greater control over projects.
  • Project methodology improvements.
  • Better project management practices.
  • Project methodology improvements.
