Being good neighbours
The go via network aims to be a good neighbour by investing in communities where we operate. Our approach to social investment is aligned with the Transurban corporate strategy which focuses on:
- Advancing transport solutions – contributing to the development of transport infrastructure
- Connecting people – enhancing social inclusion through improved mobility,
- Developing communities – addressing the social needs of communities adjacent to our roads.
Transurban Queensland raises $130,000 for children’s charity
On Friday 2 September, Transurban Queensland hosted its annual Charity Challenge which saw more than 250 guests, business partners and transport industry stakeholders swap their suits for shorts for an action packed day of activities which raised $130,000 for children’s charity, Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland.
Transurban Group General Manager Queensland Wes Ballantine said Transurban Queensland was proud to support Ronald McDonald House (SEQ), which provides a home away from home for families with a seriously ill child requiring hospital treatment.
“Transurban Queensland is proud to have raised, with our corporate partners, $130,000 for Ronald McDonald House,” Mr Ballantine said.
“I’d like to thank all of our guests, business partners and sponsors for their overwhelming support and generosity. We wish Ronald McDonald House, and all of its families, our very best wishes.”
Special thanks to our major sponsor UBS and gold sponsors EGIS, Aurecon, Kapsch, Accenture, Lendlease, Mi Electrics, PWC, Broadspectrum, KPMG, Transcity, King and Wood Mallesons, CPB Contractors, Gateway Motorway Services and Brisbane Motorway Services.
