The Wellington Metro Upgrade Programme (WMUP) is issuing this Request for Tender on behalf of KiwiRail’s Capital Projects and Asset Development team. WMUP is a rolling programme of work on the Wellington metro rail network to address deferred maintenance (catch up) and to provide new levels of capacity and performance (upgrades) with the objective of delivering a safe and reliable metro rail network that meets current and future customer expectations in the Wellington region.

The programme started in 2011 and is now made up of seven inter-linked sub programmes of work that collectively are critical to an integrated 12-year programme developing passenger rail in Wellington.

The Wairarapa Line is being upgraded to accommodate additional passenger and freight trains. To support the additional trains KiwiRail is signalling the line from Upper Hutt through to Masterton. This is an opportunity to work with KiwiRail to deliver approximately 60km of combined services route over a large geographical area with varying levels of complexity due to the different topography across the Wairarapa Line.

We are looking for suppliers who have the capability and experience to deliver the combined services route, as well as a strong understanding of working in the rail corridor. We have a strong commitment to safety and working collaboratively and expect our suppliers to show the same commitment, both in the planning and delivery of our projects. It is expected that suppliers will have an appetite to develop and grow their business, embracing new ways of working that will deliver efficiencies.

The RFT and Response Forms are attached. Please email our Point of Contact to access the supporting technical documents (Volume 2).
