Customer and community

Strengthening communities

With 16 assets across three countries, and nine projects underway during FY18, building strong relationships with the communities around our assets is important so we can help cities thrive. We build and support these relationships through partnerships, investment, community grants, and engagement activities. Many of our initiatives are featured in our In the Community website. Supporting communities through our road network Every year, we use our roads to host and support causes close to the hearts of communities. The Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids fun run, is an annual event that raises money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. This year the event raised $1.4 million, bringing the total amount raised for the appeal since the event began to more than $17 million. The fun run course includes a section of our CityLink motorway in Melbourne. As well as making our road available to the event, we also contributed $60,000 to the appeal.

The 21st Bridge-to-Brisbane charity fun run took 30,000 participants over our Go Between Bridge. To help keep traffic moving, despite major road closures, we waived tolls on our Clem7 tunnel. We donate 1c from every toll on the Legacy Way tunnel in Brisbane to Legacy Australia with a minimum commitment of $100,000 for each financial year. This year we donated $100,000 to Legacy Australia’s Youth Development Program that helps young people develop strong leadership skills and overcome personal career and educational challenges. Celebrating the five year anniversary of the 495 Express Lanes, we awarded a US$10,000 anniversary grant to the Emergency Medical Services Bike Team from the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department and the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department, to support their ongoing emergency response to citizens throughout Fairfax County, Virginia. We regularly light up our bridges in Queensland and Victoria to support many causes and awareness campaigns across the community.
