Central road maintenance, asphalt supply, laying and traffic management
Fulton Hogan creates, connects and cares for communities; building the roads, ports, airports, infrastructure and property which brings people together. We build communities literally from the ground up, starting with our own network of quarries, complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and pre-cast plants.
The Central region of New Zealand’s South Island is home to some of the country’s most dramatic, picturesque scenery. Its biggest population centre, Queenstown, attracts visitors from around the world: skiing and snowboarding take precedence in the winter; white water rafting, bungy jumping, sky diving and hiking in the summer. The mountainous terrain and harsh winter weather lead to the need for regular remedial work and maintenance on the region’s road network, and Fulton Hogan have been providing road maintenance services across New Zealand for over 80 years. Damage to surfaces caused by water, rock falls and freezing temperatures create dangerous driving conditions for the local community – we can arrange urgent repairs when they happen, and the preventative measures of our road maintenance programmes reduce the frequency of these issues arising in the first place.
New roads with quality asphalt supply and laying
As well as repairing the existing network, contractors are building new roads as the more remote areas of the Central region are opened up to visitors. Fulton Hogan has the capacity to provide asphalt supply and laying services across the region, applying asphalt and bitumen manufactured in an environmentally friendly way to safeguard this pristine landscape. Our asphalt laying crews put down surfaces specifically designed for New Zealand that are tested to ensure they provide optimum performance in the local conditions.
Fulton Hogan can provide Central’s communities peace of mind that they are being looked after, even in altered driving conditions: our extensive traffic management services give drivers warning of impending hazards and regulate traffic around them. Working with local authorities to the guidelines of the new national Traffic Management code of practice, we deal with scenarios unexpected or planned, for a few hours for a minor incident to construction works lasting weeks or months, so residents and visitors alike pass safely.
