Prospective pipeline

Greenfield (construction) or brownfield (government asset divestment) projects needed or likely to occur within the next five years, but is not formally proposed by a state, territory or major local government.

Credibly proposed

The project or divestment is supported by a state, territory or major local government, is subject to studies or other processes (such as pre-feasibility or scoping studies or business case development), and is likely to proceed to formal announcement.   

Announced

The project has a firm commitment and timeline from a state, territory or major local government, but has not yet entered the market.

Under procurement

The project or transaction is under procurement (such as a call for Expressions of Interest, requests for tender, or another offer to the market).

Preferred bidder announced

A preferred bidder has been selected and is in exclusive negotiations.

Recently closed

Projects that have progressed to contractual close remain on ANZIP for 12 months.

ANZIP is focused only on major infrastructure activity, above the following thresholds:

Australia

Construction projects: > AUD$300m

Investable greenfield & brownfield: > AUD$100m

New Zealand

All greenfield and brownfield projects and divestments: > NZD $100 million


STATUS: Prospective pipeline

JURISDICTION: SA, Commonwealth
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Traditional procurement
TYPE: Greenfield

The North-South Corridor will provide a dedicated non-stop thoroughfare for north and south bound traffic (including freight) running between Gawler and Old Noarlunga and passing through the Adelaide CBD,  a distance of 78 kilometres (with 44 kilometres of motorway already complete).

The full corridor, which is jointly-funded by the Commonwealth and South Australian governments will be completed over a period of 10 years.

Three sections have already been contracted and were funded through a $2.5 billion deal between the State and Federal Governments:

- Torrens Road to River Torrens ($896 million);
- Northern Connector Project ($985 million); and
- Darlington Upgrade Project ($620 million).

In addition, the 2018-19 Federal Budget committed an additional $1.4 billion to the North-South Corridor which will see funding contributions each year between FY2019-20 and FY2026-27. However, details of the funding profile and commencement date were not provided. The $1.4 billion includes $177 million commitment to the Regency Rd to Pym St section, which is to be co-funded by the State Government. The remaining funding has not been allocated to any specific section.

Sections that remain unfunded include:

- River Torrens to ANZAC Highway; and
- ANZAC Highway to Darlington.

Infrastructure Australia (IA) lists the remaining sections of the North-South Corridor as a near term Priority Initiative and Regency Road to Pym Street as a Priority Project in its Infrastructure Priority List.

The North-South Corridor will provide a dedicated non-stop thoroughfare for north and south bound traffic (including freight) running between Gawler and Old Noarlunga and passing through the Adelaide CBD, a distance of 78 kilometres (with 44 kilometres of motorway already complete).

One component that remains unfunded is the ANZAC Highway to Darlington section of works along South Road.

The exact scope of the ANZAC Highway to Darlington section remains unresolved, and subject to further scoping work. In August 2018, the State Government released a tender for the business case development for the ANZAC Highway to Darlington section. The tender is to investigate the possibility and technical viability associated with tunnelling for this section. In October the Government announced PWC as the successful tenderer along with SMEC, WSP and Tunnelling Solutions who will undertake the technical study into the viability of tunnelling. The business case is expected to be submitted to Infrastructure Australia before the end of 2018.

In the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure's 2015 10-Year Strategy for the remaining sections of the corridor, this section of works is estimated to cost $2.03 billion.

The 2018-19 Federal Budget committed an additional $1.4 billion to the North-South Corridor over the next 10 years, of which $1.22 billion is not yet allocated to a specific section. However, details of the funding profile and commencement date are not provided in the Budget.

 North South Corridor - Regency Road to Pym Street

VALUE: $354M AUD

PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Alliance
TYPE: Greenfield

The North-South Corridor is identified as one of Adelaide’s most important transport corridors.

It will be the major route for north and south bound traffic, including freight vehicles, running between Gawler and Old Noarlunga, a distance of 78 kilometres.

In May 2018, the South Australian and Australian Governments announced joint funding for the construction of a new section of the North-South Corridor, Regency Road to Pym Street,  connecting the South Road Superway and the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project.

Once the Torrens Road to River Torrens and Northern Connector Projects have been completed in 2018 and 2019, the Regency Road to Pym Street Project will complete a 47km non-stop free flow roadway between Gawler and the River Torrens.

The project comprises a 1.8 kilometre motorway with three lanes in each direction. In particular the concept design includes:

  • a motorway overpass of Regency Road
  • intersection upgrades including providing full access to and from the motorway at Regency Road
  • an east–west overpass bridge for pedestrians and cyclists at Pym Street, and
  • two lane local road (South Road) adjacent to the motorway on either side providing local access.

 

The Australian and South Australian Governments each committed $177 million to deliver the $354 million project, which will connect the South Road Superway to the Torrens to Torrens project via a new 1.8 kilometre, six-lane non-stop motorway. This was confirmed in the Federal Budget, which committed the $177 million towards the project which will see funding contributions each year between FY2019-20 and FY2023-24 in the next 10 years. However, details of the funding profile and commencement date were not provided. 

In November 2018, the SA Government released its forward works program, which stated that the preferred delivery model for the Regency Rd to Pym St section would be Alliance. In December 2018, proponents were invited to register their interest, although those who do not register will not be excluded from the subsequent tendering process. Subsequently in December the SA Government called for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from pre-qualified industry consortia. Two tenderers are expected to be shortlisted in late February 2019, with construction works on Regency Road to Pym Street expected to commence in the second half of 2019.

In April 2018, Infrastructure Australia (IA) released its evaluation of the business case, finding that the project had a Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) of 3.6. IA has therefore added the project to its Infrastructure Priority List as a Priority Project.
