Commissioning, Decommissioning and Handover

‚ÄčThe Electrical and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) asset base is continually being upgraded and added to. This work is undertaken by a variety of supply chain contractors including those on major projects or working for local government and developers. These Electrical and ITS assets become the ownership and maintenance responsibility of Main Roads. Accordingly, several processes as outlined below need to be implemented in order to ensure achievement of operational outcomes.
A summary of the requirements is below with further detailed information contained within the Handover of Electrical and ITS Assets Policy and Procedure available on the Quality and Inspection Policy for Electrical and ITS Assets webpage linked below. 

‚ÄčMaintenance & Defect Responsibility Prior to Handover

The party that arranges for the installation or modification of Electrical and ITS assets remains responsible for responding to faults and performing any required maintenance, until the assets have been formally accepted by and handed over to Main Roads.

Following formal acceptance of the asset, we will assume full maintenance responsibility for the asset apart from any Defect Liability obligations that may exist.

Construction and Installation

Prior to commencing any work to install a new asset or modify an existing asset, written approval shall be obtained from Main Roads. A copy of this approval shall be held on site should evidence of approval be required.

Asset numbers are to be requested using the form available on the Design Processes page.

Commissioning of Assets

Prior to commissioning any asset, the party responsible for the works or its nominee shall arrange for Main Roads to approve the commissioning.

The request to commission the asset is to be made using the form linked below. A separate form is required for each asset that has been modified or constructed.
