Downer has a long history in the delivery of both simple and complex road projects across Australia, New Zealand and Pacific nations, under a variety of contracting models. Services include complete design and construction of road earthworks, pavement construction, bridges and tunnels, and associated civil structures.
Integration with broader Group capabilities enables an end-to-end service that extends to cover intelligent transport solutions and road network management and maintenance.
In addition to our industry-leading rail rolling stock build and maintain business, downer maintains significant capability in the delivery of rail infrastructure.

Particular expertise around the delivery of services within the constraints imposed by a live operating environment, exists as a point of difference for our customers.

Downer’s ongoing involvement in the rebuild programs following the earthquakes in Christchurch and Kaikoura, comprising the reinstatement of critical road and rail infrastructure, also stands as testament to our capability and commitment to customers in the sector.
