Transport Insights has produced a development planning advice note containing information on transport related considerations at the earliest stages in the development planning process.  The note is intended to be of assistance to developers and their advisors, and considers the two initial stages in the development planning process, namely:Development Site

  • site selection and acquisition; and 

  • site feasibility. 

By engaging experienced transport advisors to provide inputs to site suitability and feasibility assessments, the time, cost and risk of bringing a subsequent development to fruition can be significantly reduced.

The advice note can be found here.

 

Transport Insights has produced a factsheet to provide bus operators with the information presently available on the upcoming tendering of Public Service Obligation (PSO) bus routes by the National Transport Authority (NTA), in one concise document. 20140812 151242 15

In addition to bringing together the information presently in the public domain, Transport Insights has drawn on its experience in the field of bus service procurement and planning, to address some of the gaps still present in the information provided by the NTA. 

The document provides an overview of the extent of NTA’s competitive tendering proposals, an outline of the possible forms that the procurement process and contract structure may take, along with some background on past procurement activity by the NTA.  In particular, Transport Insights offers advice on engaging in the tendering process and emphasises the importance of preparatory bid development work, in light of the expected emphasis on quality as well as price in the evaluation of tenders.
