Roads and highways

Broadleaf has worked for many years on projects involving roads, highways and associated infrastructure, including bridges and tunnels, for owners (usually Government agencies), contractors and alliances between public and private sector organisations.

Abu Dhabi Department of Transport

Barclay Mowlem

We undertook a quantitative analysis of uncertainty in a road improvement projects to be delivered under an alliance arrangement with the local road authority; the purpose was to establish a realistic ceiling price for funding and to develop a target cost for the alliance contract that would generate appropriate incentives for all the alliance parties and support an appropriate sharing of risks and rewards between them

Baulderstone Hornibrook

We conducted two risk assessments at the bidding stage for a freeway extension involving substantial tunnelling work, one from the perspective of the contractor for its own tender submission and one from the perspective of the owner (the road authority) to ensure the owner’s key risks would also be addressed in the tender response

We undertook quantitative risk analyses to determine the target out-turn cost for alliance contracts for an urban road tunnel and a rural highway duplication program

Leighton New Zealand

State Transit Authority, New South Wales
