Transfield Services wins US$183 million in new North American contracts

Transfield Services today announced it has secured preferred contractor status for two new contracts in Canada and the United States.

The Company has secured a 12-year CAD $160.8 million (US $165 million) asset management contract with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation scheduled to start 1 June 2012. Transfield Services will provide winter and summer maintenance, emergency response, electrical systems maintenance, selected capital improvements and structural capital improvements to 3,247 lane kilometres (2,017 lane miles) of the roadway in the Kenora area of Ontario, Canada.

Transfield Services has also secured a US$18.45 million preferred contractor status for a new seven-year contract scheduled to begin 1 August 2011 with the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) District Three, which is located along the Panhandle in the north-western region of the state. The contract includes asset maintenance for all interstates, U.S. routes and state roads in Okaloosa County, as well as S.R. 85 from the Okaloosa/Walton County line to the Alabama state line.

“This success firmly establishes our presence in the Province of Ontario and the State of Florida, strengthening our long-term relationship with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Florida Department of Transportation,” said Managing Director and CEO, Peter Goode.

Transfield Services also provides asset maintenance for 19 projects in Florida for public and private entities, including all seven of FDOT’s districts, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority, and the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority.
