The field has narrowed for the Transmission Gully project, part of the greater Wellington Northern Corridor. Holmes Consulting Group is part of the Wellington Gateway Partnership which includes Leighton Contractors Pty Ltd, HEB Construction Ltd, InfraRed Infrastructure General Partners Ltd, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd, Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC). Two consortiums will now continue to hone their contribution to the project.
In earlier phases our bridging team did the preliminary design on the 29 bridges included in this project. Those designs will now be developed to be costed as part of the overall competition phase.
The project is being procured under a public private partnership (PPP) contract to design, construct, operate and maintain the Transmission Gully highway for the next 25 years. Work is expected to start in May with the successful bidder announced in early 2014. You can read more about the project in this press release.
