Performance Contracts for Sydney Road Assets Have Been Awarded
As part of the scope of work to deliver essential road maintenance and capital projects across Greater Sydney, Transport for NSW has awarded its Sydney Road Assets Efficiency (SRAP) contracts.
Boral, Lendlease and, Tyco (ConnectSydney) in the Harbour Zone, Ventia (LinkingSydney) in the Parkland Zone and Regional ITS, and Fulton Hogan in the River Zone will earn the SRAP contracts.
Tessa Knox-Grant, Executive Director of Planning and Services for Greater Sydney, said the announcement was an achievement that would help to deliver an integrated transportation system.
“Through these new contracts, Transport for NSW is working to achieve a road maintenance solution which provides value for money and optimum service outcomes by involving the private sector and setting clear and measurable performance outcomes,” Ms Knox-Grant said.
“We believe we have struck the right balance with industry to deliver the best outcomes for the community, with a stronger focus on safety, performance, sustainability and innovation.”
The contractors are liable for, but not limited to:
Maintenance of roads, culverts, bridges, traffic signs and slopes (i.e. pot holes, vegetation, graffiti removal, line marking, etc.)
Projects for maintenance such as road resurfacing, bridge painting, relining of culverts and restoration of slopes
Minor capital enhancement activities, such as extensions of the left turn lane, improvements of traffic signals and new installations of variable message signs
Road-related clearance of traffic accidents and event management
Two of the three winning tenderers are made up of companies which are part of the consortia supplying the current Stewardship Management Contracts.
With a potential extension to 15 years, the current Sydney Road Assets Performance contracts will run for nine years.
The services will begin in July 2021, with contract mobilisation beginning in January 2021.
In the procurement process, six tenderers took part and nine submissions were received.
