Tender Details

Transport for NSW is issuing a Request for Tender (RFT) for an Independent Verifier for the Sydney Gateway Project (Stages 1 and 3).

Sydney Gateway is a NSW Government initiative to improve the way we travel to Sydney Airport and Port Botany. It will deliver major new toll-free connections from the Sydney motorway network to the International and Domestic terminals and towards the M5, Eastern Distributor and Port Botany. Sydney Gateway will strengthen Sydney’s position as a global city, by expanding and improving the existing road networks.

The Sydney Gateway road project has been separated into two separate, but interrelated works packages:

• Stage 1 – International Terminal and Qantas Drive connection – a new high capacity road connection, linking the Sydney motorway network at St Peters Interchange with Sydney Airport’s International Terminal and Qantas Drive.

• Stage 3 – Domestic Terminals access – an arterial road connection and flyover to Sydney Airport’s Domestic Terminals. This includes improvements to existing roads, to relieve congestion and improve connectivity to Sydney Airport Domestic Terminals and towards Port Botany.

The procurement process for the Independent Verifier relates to both Stage 1 and Stage 3 of Sydney Gateway (the Project). Transport for NSW intends to engage a single party to provide Independent Verifier services for both Stage 1 and Stage 3 of the Project, with this Request for Tender seeking a single tender for both stages.

The Independent Verifier is a significant role in relation to the success of the Project. The role provides critical design and construction verification to the key stakeholders to the Project, including Transport for NSW (as the principal and primary asset owner), the design and construct contractor and Sydney Airport (as a stakeholder and end owner of certain assets) and other third parties (including ARTC (amongst others) as interface asset owners).
