Tender Awarded for Construction of the Bundarra Sewerage Scheme
Published on 03 November 2020
The Bundarra Sewerage Scheme construction tender has been awarded to Ledonne Construction Pty Ltd, following a decision made at Council’s Ordinary Meeting on Tuesday, 27 October 2020.
Following a decision made at an Extraordinary Meeting of Council held 29 September, a qualified consultant was engaged to review the tender process. While this added a slight delay to the project, the additional review has given Council the confidence it has obtained best value for the Bundarra community.
Council reviewed the report provided by Local Government Procurement and Charles Kendall Australia and resolved that subject to the finalisation of the Safe and Secure Water Program grant funding deed, the Bundarra Sewerage Scheme construction contract be awarded to Ledonne Construction Pty Ltd.
Uralla Shire Mayor, Councillor Michael Pearce said he was pleased to announce this milestone in the Bundarra Sewerage Scheme project.
“This final stage of the project will be a huge step forward for the Bundarra community,” Mayor Pearce said.
“Once the Safe and Secure Water funding deed has been finalised, construction on the project will then commence.”
Council expects the Safe and Secure Water funding deed to be finalised in a matter of weeks and be completed in mid-November 2020. The project construction is expected to commence by December 2020 and to be commissioned in late 2021.
The Bundarra Sewerage Scheme is an $8.81 million project with a majority of funding provided by the NSW Government’s Safe and Secure Water Program.
The project will provide economic, environmental, and public health benefits to the residents of Bundarra in the construction of a sewage treatment plant, sewer reticulation network, and other associated infrastructure.
