TRAFFIC SIGNALS AND INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE STANDARD SPECIFICATION FOR ROAD MAINTENANCE DoI REFERENCE TEXT October 2015 Page 136 SITE OF WORKS 16.5 There are various sites for these works. Refer to the RFT. The sites will include all traffic signalised intersections, pedestrian crossings AWS, CCTV, UPS, VSLS, and ITS applications within the areas stipulated in the RFT. All traffic signals in the stipulated areas are included in this contract. Maintenance for any newly constructed assets will be included within the maintenance list once a handover has been undertaken with the constructing contractor and the Project Manager for the governing agency and accepted by DoI Traffic Section. All Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras under the control of Department of Infrastructure (DoI) are included in this contract. Other selected NTG CCTV assets or future council CCTV may also be included. The following points identify locations of these intersections and are shown in: Table 16.7 - NT Government Owned Traffic Signals Darwin Region, Table 16.8 Darwin City Council Owned Traffic Signals, Table 16.9 Palmerston City Council Owned Traffic Signals, Table 16.10 NT Government Owned Traffic Signals Alice Springs and Table 16.11 Alice Springs Council Owned Traffic Signals (Refer clause 16.30): - Department of Infrastructure managed traffic signal assets, and all other ITS assets; - City of Darwin Council owned traffic signal assets & - City of Palmerston Council owned traffic signal assets & - Alice Springs Town Council owned traffic signal assets. Where work is required to be carried out in easements or on land adjacent to the site for the purpose of connecting services or joining up of roads etc. ensure that the appropriate licences and approvals are obtained for work in those particular areas. Permits City or Town Council permits are required to be obtained to undertake works for all non-fault maintenance activities. As per Council direction, fees will be waived for all works within Darwin and Palmerston Council jurisdictions for works directly relating to traffic signal or ITS maintenance purposes executed under this contract. Approved permits shall be forwarded on to the Traffic Section prior to proceeding with the works. RESTRICTED WORKING HOURS 16.6 The work to be performed under the Contract shall be subject to execution within certain restricted working hours and the Contractor shall therefore accept that some Routine Maintenance works may not be able to be carried out within normal work hours due to the high risk nature of some environments, for example; where traffic volumes are too high to allow works to be undertaken in accordance with PROVISION FOR TRAFFIC or Australian Standards for traffic management. Therefore these works shall be rescheduled to a time when risk can be better managed i.e. after hours or on weekends at the scheduled rates. For the purpose of this contract working hours are: - Business Hours: Within 0700 1700 hours, - After Hours: Outside the above hours, weekends and Public Holidays. See also PROVISION FOR TRAFFIC. See also the clause titled Working Hours in the Conditions of Contract. See also the clause titled Routine Maintenance for further clarification. ACCESS TO SITE 16.7 Prior to entering the site of the Works, the Contractor shall contact the officer-in-charge of the site to explain the nature of the work to be carried out and for permission to enter to carry out the Works. In the event of either, being unable to contact the officer-in-charge, or being refused permission to enter the premises the Contractor shall notify the Superintendents Representative. Work shall not proceed in such areas until further advised by the Superintendents Representative. Note: This clause applies where the contractor is required to access a site to undertake traffic signal, or ITS maintenance, that at the time, is under contractual possession of a third party i.e. other contractor.
