Intelligent Transport Systems request for proposal starts today
5 February 2014
The procurement of maintenance services for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) assets moved a step closer with the Request for Proposal (RFP) stage starting today.
“Roads and Maritime Services called for Expression of Interest (EOI) in November last year for ITS assets managed in and from Sydney,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“This was the first step in a procurement process which followed positive industry discussion with organisations with expertise in ITS.
The maintenance of ITS assets includes traffic signals, electronic message signs and electronic lane changing systems.
“The following shortlisted applicants have significant experience in ITS and have been invited to submit detailed proposals as part of the RFP stage:
Leighton Boral Amey Joint Venture
Lend Lease Tyco Joint Venture
UGL Engineering Pty Ltd
Cubic Transportation Systems (Australia) Pty Ltd.
“Roads and Maritime aims to provide road users with a reliable road network to ensure safe and efficient journeys, while working with the private sector to deliver improved services with greater innovation.
“The RFP stage is open until Tuesday 8 April. The evaluation stage will then start, with successful proponents to be announced in mid-May.
“Roads and Maritime is a customer-focused delivery agency and has introduced new capabilities and innovations to improve safety and reduce disruption to traffic on NSW roads.
“Increased contestability of maintenance will reduce the cost of managing and maintaining assets and will deliver improved services for all road users,” the spokesperson said.
