Transport Infrastructure Ireland is the Authority responsible for the maintenance and development of a diverse set of road assets. TII has a requirement for competent contractors to maintain all areas of trunk roads, operation, renewals, winter and incident response.
Maintenance of the road network is undertaken with the following primary objectives:
1. To ensure that on a day-to-day basis the network is kept in a satisfactory operational manner.
2. To ensure that delays and disruption to road users are kept to a minimum through effective network management.
3. To ensure that the asset value of the network is not allowed to degrade. In order to achieve this, annual and multi-annual rehabilitation regimes are required in order to ensure that as the network condition is subjected to the accumulated actions of environment, weather and traffic, the infrastructure is maintained and renewed in a timely and prioritized manner.
For the purpose of the MMaRC contracts the High Speed Road Network is divided into three areas A, B and C.
1. LOT A The first region (Network A) includes the Greater Dublin area and is approximately 160km in length including parts of the N/M1, N/M2, N/M3, N/M4, N/M7, M9 and N/M11.
2. LOT B The second region (Network B) includes the Midlands/West of the country with approximately 256km of carriageway and includes parts of the N/M4, N/M6, M7, N/M18, N19, M20 and N85.
3. LOT C The third region (Network C) includes the south and south east and is approximately 328km in length and includes parts of the M7, M8, M9, N10, N20, N22, N24, N25, N28 and N40.
TII intends to contract for maintenance operations and renewals on all 3 lots over 60 months starting mid-2019 , with the possibility of extending the period by any number of extension periods up to a total of 36 months at TII's discretion.
