This tender is for construction services to deliver an upgrade to the existing Weight Enforcement Site (WES) at Glasnevin, and the installation of a new WES at Rakaia. Each WES comprises Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) and Automatic Number Place Recognition (ANPR) pre-screening equipment (suppled and installed by others), Variable Message Sign (supplied by others), road improvements, and a weigh station which includes vehicle weight and inspection enforcement facilities. This contract includes construction of the new weigh station site at Rakaia comprising site development and construction of a small , single story office building, an inspection shed plus road construction, concrete foundations for equipment supplied by others, electricity and fibre for telecommunications and data networking cabling. At Glasnevin, the contract comprises modification to the existing weigh station site and building, plus the construction of an inspection shed.
One of NZ Transport Agency’s roles is to manage the State Highway network to provide for safe, reliable and informed journeys. Heavy vehicle operators are legally required to comply with specific weight limits so that they do not pose a risk to other road users or damage road infrastructure. The Weigh Right Programme (WRP) plans to increase heavy vehicle weight compliance by increasing the likelihood – and operator’s perception of the likelihood – of being caught. Increasing compliance will reduce the road safety risk and unpaid-for infrastructure wear associated with overweight vehicles, and will secure a level playing field for operators.
To achieve this, NZ Transport Agency wishes to engage a contractor to facilitate the successful delivery of these two WES locations. To this extent, the Transport Agency is seeking to:
• Develop a trusted and collaborative relationship to deliver a successful project;
• Deliver a quality project aligned to the Transport Agency values and priorities;
• Establish a delivery team who share personal accountability for project success;
• Implement clear and measurable performance criteria to diver quality deliverables throughout the construction period;
• Demonstrate highest standards of professional and considerate behaviour to ensure the reputation of the Transport Agency is maintained throughout delivery of the sites;
• Work collaboratively with other teams and contractors to deliver the works.
