Lendlease is calling for expressions of interest from contractors after being shortlisted to tender on two contracts worth almost $1 billion over five to seven years.

The client – Main Roads WA – has requested tenders for its Metropolitan Network Contract and Statewide Electrical Infrastructure Contract be submitted by January 30.

Lendlease Senior Bid Manager Jon Scarth says the Metropolitan Network Contract is worth $80-$100m per year, while the Statewide Electrical Infrastructure Contract comes in at about $40m annually.

Project 1 covers road maintenance and minor capital works while Project 2 covers electrical maintenance and associated capital works. 

The contract terms are five years with a possible two-year extension. Scarth will outline the scope of works and values at a WA Works Sundowner on December 6.

If successful, Lendlease would inspect the Metropolitan road network and undertake all routine and planned maintenance related work to road assets as well as minor capital works.

The packages covers a wide range of requirements from litter and graffiti removal to minor capital works including intersection improvements, road widening and seal.

The electrical infrastructure contract includes traffic control signals, electronic signs in school zones and road monitoring cameras.


“The routine maintenance is the relatively small stuff, something in the order of say $5000 to $10,000 each, but when you get to the capital works delivery that’s more like $5m in value for each project,” Scarth says.

“We are seeking expressions of interest from contractors with the capability and capacity to deliver subcontract services and materials.” 

“Once we have a list of suppliers with the capabilities we can go through them and apply the filter. Let’s say there’s 50 that can do barrier works, we’ll choose 10 that best suit the business and then get those guys prequalified.


“For prequalification we’d require all of our contractors to go through Browz, where a third party provider checks all the insurances and the like.”

Once registered, Scarth says contractors can then be eligible to undertake any type of work for Lendlease on any contract.

Both contracts are anticipated to be awarded in February with contract commencement in August.
