GETS – Notice of Information
Title: Airport to Botany Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Single Stage Business Case (SSBC) and NoR; and Short-Term Airport Access SSBC – Professional Services
Intention to release Tender Request for Proposal (RfP) mid November 2017
Intended Tender close: Prior to 20th December 2017.
AT Contract Number: 342-18-325-PS
Auckland Transport intends to release an open market RFP for the above contract, for the provision of Professional Services to produce Single Stage Detailed Business Cases (IBC and DBC) for the Airport to Botany Mass Rapid Transit, as well as for the short-term Airport Access Improvements (to be in place by 2020).
AT, the Transport Agency and Auckland Airport developed the Airport Access Programme Business Case in early 2017 and all three organisations endorsed this in May 2017. The PBC outlines an agreed high-level tripartite programme for improving airport access.
These single stage businesses cases aim to confirm some of the PBC’s key recommendations and are required to support the continued success of the airport and surrounding areas.
The single stage business cases will be in two parts:
1. Part 1 – Options Selection Phase (indicative business case / IBC)
2. Part 2 – Option Refinement Phase (detailed business case / DBC)
The key deliverables will be:
1. A “fit for purpose” single stage detailed business case (SSBC) - termed “Short-Term SSBC”; to confirm the short-term measures to be in place by 2020, including an upgraded Puhinui Station Interchange; and
2. A single-staged detailed business case to confirm the MRT solution for the Airport to Botany corridor (termed A to B MRT SSBC), including an upgraded Botany Interchange. The SSBC will be used to support route protection, i.e. lodgement of a Notice of Requirement (NoR) – which forms part of this commission; and implementation of the Airport to Botany MRT. Implementation and staging timing of the full A to B MRT solution is to be confirmed via the business case work, however, an operational new Botany Interchange is required by 2022/23.
The RfP will be released mid-November 2017, from the GETS website.
In advance of the RFP issue key project background documents, including the Airport Access Programme Business Case (Final Report, September 2017), have been released via the attached pdf notice.
