RFT Briefing Session
There is an opportunity for tenderers to attend an RFT Briefing session with the Evaluation Panel (EP), Auckland Council and Utility Providers. The Briefing session is mandatory due to the complex nature of the services and interactions with key stakeholders.
Please register your interest for the RFT Briefing session by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org , Attn: Roberto Chavez, referencing 746-22-084-PW1 Great North Road Enabling works. Please include name, title, phone numbers and email address of a nominated contact person and names, titles and email addresses of personnel who wish to attend the meeting.
Great North Road upgrade project in the first Construction project that is part of the wider Connected Communities Programme. This first project includes an approximately 1.6km section of Great North Road between the Grey Lynn village and Ponsonby Road. The Ponsonby Road / Karangahape Road / Newton Road and Bond Street intersections are included as part of the project extent. In the north, the project will tie into the recently completed Karangahape Road enhancements. In the south, the project will tie into the remainder of the Great North Road corridor.
Transport outcomes will optimise and support increase in bus patronage through improving bus journey times and improving service reliability with continuous unimpeded bus lanes, along with connections to walking and cycling facilities. The proposed cycleway supports the increased use of cycling / scooter use across the network and connects into the overall walking and cycling strategy of Auckland. GNR is also identified as a key connection in the Auckland cycling network (ACN).
Safety improvements support the roll-out of Vision Zero with reduced vehicle speeds, increased street lighting and separated walking and cycling facilities.
Due to the significant businesses and residential customers that line this arterial road, in order to minimise the impact to them, and reduce the risk of construction delays because of significant known and unknown services within the project boundaries, the project will be procured as two independent tenders:
RFT 1: Enabling works and Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters upgrade (this procurement)
RFT 2: Remaining GNR Works - Procurement is scheduled for FY 22/23. Contract award and work commencement is scheduled to commence in October 2022 and be completed in July 2023.
