With more than 50 years of experience, Aurecon is a leader in the planning, design and delivery of road systems and related infrastructure. To date, we have designed tens of thousands of km’s of roads both nationally and internationally. The company’s specialised, multidisciplinary know-how in the roads arena extends to the planning and design of all types of roads- from rural access roads to complex freeways, toll roads and system interchanges. We combine engineering, economic and legal skills in order to provide integrated professional services that fulfil clients’ requirements across the developed and developing world.

Aurecon has a multitude of specialised resources to successfully complete any roads project, no matter the extent of requirements. With a dominant presence in the international transport market, Aurecon is acclaimed for offering road engineering expertise, including studies, design, construction, management and maintenance.

  • Bridges and tunnel design
  • Crime prevention through environmental design
  • Environmental and policy planning
  • Geographic information systems
  • Geotechnical investigations
  • Intelligent transportation systems (ITS)
  • Labour based technologies
  • Landscape and environmental assessment
  • Microsimulation
  • Pedestrian planning
  • Public transport
  • Road safety
  • Stakeholder consultation
  • Traffic engineering
  • 3D visualisation and animation.

Our clients include private companies and consortia, government authorities, contractors, and financiers working through a variety of relationship models from direct engagement and alliances to design and construct, and construction management.

Aurecon has received numerous awards for roads projects, including the design of roads and implementation of major roads construction projects, documentation, management and maintenance.  A few of our most recent awards are the Roading New Zealand Supreme Award for the Northern Busway, Victorian Engineering Excellence Award for Melbourne’s EastLink project (Australia’s largest road infrastructure project at the time of construction in 2008), and the SAICE National Award in the Community-based Projects category for the Ultra Thin Reinforced Concrete Pavement (UTRCP) Project in Soshanguve, South Africa.

Aurecon also has a specialist statistical traffic research and consultancy arm, Integrated Management Information Systems (IMIS) offering  specialised research, planning and monitoring in travel, transport infrastructure and supply chain fields.

With an extensive resource base and team of in-house specialists, we can design and manage projects, from planning and concept design to detailed construction design and project delivery.
