G-ORT Design, Build & Operations Supervision
Tollinfra was appointed by the South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) to fulfil certain key aspects of the supervision of the Contract between the Contractor (Operator) and the Agency. This Contract is based on international Best Practices utilising the FIDIC conditions of contract; where the supervision role includes the application of the conditions and ensuring that the extensive requirements are being fulfilled.
Tollinfra fulfilled the specific role of the nominated Employers Representative for the Design and Build phase of the project. This project was developed almost entirely using local South African expertise, as SANRAL had determined that the cost and value obtained in the local market matched and improved upon services available from broad based international sources.
The Project included the supervision of all the electronic and IT systems, the operations related to the G-ORT Back Office, National Transaction Clearing House and the National Violations Center. The latter two, as the name implies, being developed and applied across the entire South African roads network.
Under the Contract, the Operator had to establish a new organisation which would create approximately 2 000 permanent job opportunities, with newly acquired skills, new philosophies and new disciplines; all of which were designed and overseen for implementation by the supervisory team.
