NorthLink WA Procurement Commences
The $1.1 billion NorthLink WA initiative has moved into the procurement phase, with Main Roads Western Australia advertising for Expressions of Interest for the delivery of the first works package. The $281M Tonkin Grade Separation and Reconstruction Project is funded 50/50 by the Commonwealth and State Governments and includes the grade separation of three intersections together with associated upgrading of a 5km section of Tonkin Highway, in the north east of the Perth Metropolitan area.
NorthLink WA has registered for an Infrastructure Sustainability Design Rating, and achieving the best possible sustainability outcomes has been highlighted in the Expressions of Interest document for the Tonkin Grade Separation Project (download here).
Main Roads WA is proposing a design and construct contract for the Tonkin Grade Separation works package and is considering an Incentivised Performance Framework to encourage the successful Contractor to achieve best practice in key areas, including sustainability.
