Tender Details

TfNSW is inviting suitably experienced and qualified organisations to submit Tenders to undertake the role of the Independent Certifier (IC) and perform the Services for the M1 Pacific Motorway extension to Raymond Terrace project (Project).  

The M1 Pacific Motorway Extension to Raymond Terrace (M12RT) will provide a critical link in the National Land Transport Network (NLTN), particularly for the coastal Sydney to Brisbane road corridor. The M12RT extends the M1 Motorway from Black Hill to the Pacific Highway at Raymond Terrace and bypasses Beresfield, Hexham and Heatherbrae.  

The Project seeks to provide safer, more consistent and reliable travel, reduce travel times for all road users, improve transport efficiency, ease congestion and support economic development.  

The fifteen (15) kilometres of the M12RT extension will be delivered by two collaborative Design and Construct (D&C) contracts: 

  1. Southern Section (known as Black Hill to Tomago): Acciona Infrastructure Australia, and the John Holland/ Gamuda (Australia) Branch Joint Venture have been selected to take part in the D&C tender process for this 10 kilometre section.  
  2. Northern collaborative (known as Heatherbrae Bypass): Seymour Whyte Constructions and BMD Constructions have been selected to take part in the D&C tender process for this 5 kilometre section.  

This RFT for IC Services covers both the Black Hill to Tomago and Heatherbrae Bypass sections. Both D&C contracts are expected to be awarded by the end of 2022. 

The Project is funded by the State and Commonwealth  Government and is being procured and delivered by TfNSW.  

Organisations wishing to tender must be, in TfNSW’s opinion, a bona fide service provider or consortium who has the capabilities and experience to play a significant role in a consortium, or to act as a service provider in its own right, to deliver the IC services.

Prospective tenderers will need to complete, sign and return the confidentiality deed poll (in accordance with the instructions in the deed) to the Contact Officer prior to being given instructions to access the Request for Tender (RFT) documents via a separate Data Room.

The Request for Tender (RFT) documents are now available via the Ansarada Data Room to prospective tenderers who have completed the Confidentiality Deed Poll and been given access by the Contact Officer.

There will be no pre-tender meeting for this tender. 

Without any obligation to do so, where the integrity of the tender process is not compromised, TfNSW may determine (in its absolute discretion) that it is appropriate to consider a late tender submission.

All tenderers must comply with the New South Wales Government Procurement Policy Framework (NSW Framework) and NSW Government Supplier Code of Conduct (NSW Code). Copies of the NSW Framework and NSW Code are available at
