It seems we are one step closer to the commencement of the Albion Park Rail Bypass. Contractors have been called upon to register their interest in the design and build of the proposed bypass, with works expected to start in early 2019.
Take a look at the full media release below for full details:
CONTRACTORS INVITED TO REGISTER INTEREST IN ALBION PARK RAIL BYPASS DESIGN AND BUILD
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has today announced that the RMS is now inviting registrations of interest from tenders capable of carrying out the detailed design and build of the proposed Albion Park Rail bypass.
Mr Ward said that the New South Wales Government has allocated $15 million in 2016-17 through the Rebuilding NSW Plan to continue planning and early work to deliver the bypass.
“This is a clear indication the project is progressing and will be ready to start on time once all the necessary planning approvals are in place,” he said.
“Applications for the registration of interest are invited from contractors who are on Roads and Maritime’s Register of Prequalified Contractors to carry out the design and building of the bypass.
“A shortlist of applicants will then be selected and invited to submit tenders to carry out the project.
“The proposed bypass will be an extension of the M1 Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats, bypassing the highway through Albion Park Rail.
“As a result of community feedback, Roads and Maritime has investigated some changes to the current design,” Mr Ward said.
“These include reducing the impact on agricultural land by changing the central interchange at Albion Park.
“With these investigations taking place, Roads and Maritime will respond to all feedback from the EIS displayed in 2015 in a submissions report to be released mid this year.
“Planning approval for the project is now targeted for late 2017 with major work still on track to start in early 2019,” Mr Ward concluded.
Registrations of interest documents are available from the website at: tenders.nsw.gov.au/rms.
The local community will continue to be updated as this project progresses.
