Transport for NSW has awarded its Sydney Road Assets Performance (SRAP) contracts, as part of a scope of works to deliver critical road maintenance and capital projects across Greater Sydney.
The SRAP contracts are going to Boral, Lendlease and, Tyco (ConnectSydney) in the Harbour Zone, Fulton Hogan in the River Zone and Ventia (LinkingSydney) in the Parkland Zone and Regional ITS.
Executive Director Planning and Programs for Greater Sydney, Tessa Knox-Grant, said the announcement is a milestone that will help deliver an integrated transport 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 will be responsible for, but are not limited to:
- Maintenance of roads, bridges, culverts, slopes and traffic signals (i.e. pot holes, vegetation, graffiti removal, line marking, etc.)
- Maintenance projects such as road resurfacing, bridge painting, slope rehabilitation and culvert relining
- Minor capital improvement works such as left turn lane extensions, traffic signals upgrades and new variable message sign installations
- Road-related traffic incident clearance and event management
Two of the three winning tenderers are made up of companies which are part of the consortia delivering the existing Stewardship Maintenance Contracts.
The new Sydney Road Assets Performance contracts will last for nine years with a possible extension to 15 years.
They will begin services from July 2021, with contract mobilisation starting in January 2021.
Six tenderers participated in the procurement process and nine submissions were received.
