Oosterweel Link - Market Consultation

SUBJECT OF THE MARKET CONSULTATION:
This notice does not concern a public contract, but is a notice in the context of a market consultation. This market consultation does not aim to select a specific partner for the realisation of (a public contract of) the Oosterweel Link, but precedes the actual selection- and award procedures.
CONTEXT:
The Oosterweel Link will make the Antwerp Ring, the R1, a complete circle. The Left Bank, the southern port, ‘het Eilandje’, Merksem, and the area surrounding the ‘Sportpaleis’ will meet and connect. The Oosterweel Link will ensure smoother and safer traffic on the Antwerp Ring and less cut-through traffic on local roads. The surrounding residential areas will benefit from improved air quality, reduction of noise pollution, and creation of more areas of open and green space. Thus, the Oosterweel Link will not only provide a solution for the daily traffic congestion on the ring road but also a more pleasant way of living, working, and residing in Antwerp and the surroundings.
The Oosterweel Link construction will start at the end of 2017. In the course of 2016, the various public contracts, which each represent a specific project, will be tendered. This market consultation concerns both the tendering of the public contracts, and the realisation of the Oosterweel Link.
OBJECTIVES OF THE MARKET CONSULTATION:
BAM hopes to achieve the following objectives with this market consultation:
• To obtain an effective and actual competition, by informing potentially interested (market) players as much as possible about the projects / public contracts so that they are encouraged to participate / submit a tender. In that context, BAM will organize an information meeting (see section VI.2 of this notice) and possibly also visit certain targeted companies.
• To receive feedback from the market, which will be taken into consideration in the organization of the procedure (cf. tendering and realisation of the Oosterweel Link).
SCOPE OF THE MARKET CONSULTATION:
This market consultation aims to introduce the ‘entire’ Oosterweel project by means of a global approach. The Left Bank project / public contract will be tendered separately and is as such not included in this market consultation.
