Intelligent Transport Systems shortlist announced for maintenance contestability
Roads and Maritime Services moves into next stage in the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) maintenance contestability reform program with five organisations shortlisted to provide a request for Proposal (RFP) for ITS assets in the Sydney area.
“The five shortlisted parties, offering both local and international experience are Leighton Boral Amey Joint Venture, DownerMouchel, Lend Lease Tyco Joint Venture, UGL Engineering Pty Ltd and Cubic Transportation Systems Australia Pty Ltd,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“Expressions of Interest were called in November. This was the first step in the procurement process and followed positive industry engagement with organisations which have expertise in maintaining ITS assets.
"During the EOI, nine submissions were received from providers specialising in the required fields.
“The services included planning, project management and delivery of maintenance work on ITS assets, as well as minor improvement work, such as renewal and replacement of these assets.
"The EOI closed on Tuesday 4 December 2013.
"Roads and Maritime Services is committed to achieving solutions which provide improved cost efficiencies and optimum service delivery to road users,” the spokesperson said.
The RFP process will start in early 2014 with the shortlisted companies being invited to submit proposals.
Roads and Maritime anticipates contracts will be awarded to successful proponents in mid 2014.
Roads and Maritime will continue to maintain ITS assets until responsibility for maintenance is handed to the new service provider.
