Section II: Object
Mountain Ash Southern Cross Valley Link.
Mountain Ash, Rhondda Cynon Taff.
Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCT) is seeking to award a contract for the design and construction of a 2-way, 3 lane link road and road bridge extending from the Cwm Cynon Industrial Estate Access Road from the A4059 to the B4275 Miskin Road, Mountain Ash. RCT recognise this to be a key project which will improve accessibility and connectivity in an area where limited cross valley linkage causes significant congestion on the local and strategic transport network affecting all highway users, including commercial delivery services and public transport. The link road will be substantially formed by a new bridge crossing the Cynon Trail, River Cynon and a single railway line extending over a length of approximately 60 metres.
In addition to the new bridge, Miskin Road (B4275) will be improved for a length of approximately 385 metres along its one-way southbound section, to provide a 2-way full width road.
The contract will make provision for a break clause permitting RCT to terminate the contract without penalty at the conclusion of the completed design (Stage 4 Technical Design). The purpose of this clause is to act as a contingency against any delay or interruption to third party project funding.
In the event that the break clause is invoked, RCT will have unrestricted rights to use the Contractor's developed design and associated documentation in connection with the project.
The Buyer requires confirmation from the Tenderer that it is a Network Rail Approved Contractor (holds a Principal Contractor's Licence) or an undertaking that it will employ a Network Rail Approved Contractor for all works.
