This project contains some of the components of the New Zealand Upgrade Programme (NZUP) Canterbury package identified to improve safety, provide better travel choice and support more reliable freight access to and from Rolleston inland ports. The Rolleston Transport Improvements Programme Business Case identified that the large traffic volumes on the corridor and poor interface with local road intersections is resulting in increasing conflicts, safety risk, severance, and reduced liveability and sustainability of Rolleston. This NZUP project is the Crown investment that address those issues along the State Highway corridor.

This contract is for the delivery of an approved Detailed Business Case for the NZUP project in Rolleston. This work includes:

• A new multi-modal transport link (flyover) between the Rolleston Town Centre and Rolleston Industrial Zone, including removal of the existing traffic signals at Hoskyns Road and Rolleston Drive north.
• Safety improvements at intersections along the SH1 corridor between Hoskyns Road and Walkers/Dunns Crossing Road
• Rail improvements to connect the Midland line with the Main South Line and reduce shunting activities

Following the completion of the business cases, the pre-implementation work for the NZUP project is proposed in two stages, being the at-grade intersection, road and rail elements, and the more complex flyover structure detailed design. There is an opportunity for the successful proponent of this contract to also be considered for the Stage 1 at-grade pre-implementation works for the NZUP project, subject to performance and demonstrating the ability to deliver these works.

Electronic copies of the RFT documentation are attached to this advertisement.
