Major Roads Project Victoria

Working at Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) means being part of something big.

We oversee more than 40 projects as a cornerstone of Victoria's Big Build, including some of the State's most important roads.

Join us in building better connections for Victoria by:

Providing coordination and oversight of the design activities across multiple road related projects in Geelong and Ballarat offices, including our Barwon Heads Road project. 

  • Working with the nominated Contractor and its Design Consultants to develop cost effective design solutions, which provide time and cost certainty and can be delivered with minimal impact on stakeholders, traffic and the community. 
  • Ensuring the Contractors produce designs which meet the State's scope and specification requirements and can be easily accepted and maintained by the Department of Transport at completion.
  • Engaging with MRPV's Technical Advisor for support in development of design solutions, and actively manage their deliverables and outputs to ensure tasks are completed to the desired quality, timeline and budget.
  • Providing high level technical advice to MRPV's project delivery team on complex engineering issues, related to road design, civil structures, drainage, pavements and other civil infrastructure disciplines, including the identification and management of technical risks.

You will have worked on road design and design management/coordination projects, and have experience in planning, functional design and design delivery of major civil infrastructure projects. As well as strong interpersonal and communication skills, you will have a solid technical background with demonstrated understanding of design and engineering issues throughout the project lifecycle.
