Road maintenance

Promoting safe and efficient road networks is the focus of our asset management team.

Success in maintenance contracts requires close attention to programming; forward works planning; strong relationships and communication; skilled and experienced resources.

  • As experienced road maintenance contractors, we work closely with our clients to ensure we get the right results, aiming to improve and add value to our clients by thinking outside the square to achieve innovative solutions.
  • We are a proven team in response to emergency events and are experienced in remedial works after emergencies from the rebuilding of pavements and drainage to retaining wall, clearing slips, and flood debris.
  • We invest in the latest plant and machinery to provide optimal performance for the requirements of any maintenance contract from drainage, pavement, vegetation control, road marking, signs, and emergency remedial work.
  • Ongoing training programs provide all our crews the support they need to ensure the right mix of skill and knowledge.

Introduced in 2013 the Higgins CARE staff training program reinforces our company standards and helps our teams understand the important role they play in delivering customer care in our organisation.

The training is run independently by external training provider Kiwihost. CARE is the first independently run New Zealand customer care training program targeted to the civil construction industry with three levels of training designed to different roles in our business.
