On the road again: Ausroad upgrades council’s ageing fleet

Challenge

A Queensland-based local council needed to replace an ageing fleet of road maintenance trucks and transition the new vehicles to the road with minimal service interruptions.

Solution

Ausroad consulted with the client and made a number of recommendations. Subsequently, the council purchased four Ausroad HD Series Road Maintenance Trucks and one Emulsion Spray Trailer. One of the deciding factors that made Ausroad a strategic match for this project was the speed at which Ausroad could build the trucks to specification, which was more than 50 per cent faster than other companies that tendered said they could deliver.

Result

The new vehicles have resulted in:

  • Increased productivity
  • Improved operator comfort
  • Less down-time due to better reliability
  • Higher workplace health and safety standards.
