ACT Projects Pipeline April 2022

The ACT Projects Pipeline gives you and idea what the ACT Government (Major Projects Canberra) thinks will be coming up (EIS approval permitting). For cycling there is not much new here, except the 2022 ACT Household Travel Survey has officially started, 5 years after the last survey. Good news.

Never heard of it? It is worth knowing about. TCCS announcements are few and far between.

The Blurb

The Projects Pipeline contains a register of planned procurement activities required to deliver the ACT Government’s budget funded capital works program.

The Project Pipeline is limited to construction related procurement opportunities. Tenders ACT contains a list of non-construction related forecast procurements, primarily for goods and/or services.

The Project Pipeline is aligned with the ACT Government Budget Process. There may be confidentiality requirements which impact the ability for procurement information to be published on the Project Pipeline.

Unless the contract type is “construction” nothing is being built yet. The term “estate development” could mean different things but likely construction of services and road for the SLA. The rough sequences is:

  1. feasibility study
  2. detailed design
