Does your council own any of the following: signalised intersections, school crossings, pedestrian crossings or wombat crossings?
Did you know?
The Department for Planning, Infrastructure and Transport (DPTI) current maintenance arrangement for council-owned traffic signals, pedestrian, school and wombat crossings will cease from 1 November 2020.
We have a solution!
A local South Australian business, SAGE Automation, who have been maintaining DPTI and council assets for many years, will continue to provide the services through the an existing arrangement with LGA Procurement. This means councils will not need to tender for this service. The existing Head of Agreement arrangement was setup through LGA Procurement and underwent a rigorous open tender process that satisfies probity requirements (with particular reference to the Local Government and ICAC legislation) and achieves best value for councils.
SAGE and LGA Procurement recently presented SAGE’s proposed maintenance solution via a webinar on Thursday 13 August (available for members to view here).
This proposal will use the existing currently maintained asset data provided by DPTI. SAGE can discuss with you and your council further options to ensure that your traffic assets are being serviced according to Australian Standards.
Please register your councils interest by emailing LGA Procurement COB Wednesday 26 August.
Once an email has been received, SAGE will provide an individual maintenance solution proposal to each council.
