Maranoa Regional Council (Council) invites suitably skilled, qualified, and experienced businesses to tender for gravel haulage for the Injune Taroom Road & Bonnydoon Road Upgrade Projects.
Given the size of the projects and the logistics associated with managing the number of contractors on site, Council is seeking responses from Tenderers (responding as ‘lead Tenderer’) who are able to deliver the number of side tippers required by the project, either through their own resources, or through pre-arranged sub-contract arrangements.
Tenderers need to ensure that they can provide capacity to guarantee the adequate and consistent supply of gravel is maintained throughout the project’s duration.
The gravel demand will vary depending on project requirements and weather forecasts; therefore directly influencing the number of side tippers required on a daily basis. Council cannot guarantee continuity of work during the working cycle.
The provision of up to four (4) side tipper combinations (simultaneously), ranging from single trailers to AB triples, is the maximum number of vehicles required to ensure a consistent supply of gravel during peak periods.
It is essential that each Tenderer (lead Tenderer) has the capacity to supply all four (4) side tippers (simultaneously), with the Tender response to include the details for each prime mover and trailer of the lead Tenderer and all the sub-contractors that are likely to be engaged throughout the project.
The successful tenderer will be required to make available side tippers from early March 2018 (approximately). The construction period will span approximately 10 calendar months for the Injune Taroom Road and Bonnydoon Road Upgrade Projects combined.
