Environmental Sustainability


Penny Farthing has the most first-hand experience when it comes to the National Environmental Management Act. The environment entails the wildlife, flora and surrounding communities. Penny Farthing is responsible to protect, develop and maintain these aspects of each contract. The goal is to perfect the balance between a safe road network for the travelling public and manage the preservation of the surrounding environment. This requires the compliance of management to perform the correct procedures prescribed before-hand.
