Project overview

The Rockhampton Ring Road is a major infrastructure project within the Central Queensland region, which will offer significant employment opportunities throughout the construction phase.

The Rockhampton Ring Road will provide a western link of the Bruce Highway through Rockhampton extending from the Capricorn Highway between Rockhampton and Gracemere in the south, to the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road/Bruce Highway intersection in the north and will include a new crossing of the Fitzroy River between Pink Lily and Kawana.

The project will improve road safety and strengthen the region's economy by improving freight efficiency, flood resilience and job opportunities.

Opportunities for suppliers

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is committed to maximising opportunities for local suppliers and services to gain work on the Rockhampton Ring Relocated project. TMR is partnering with the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning to provide interested companies with the tools and information required to increase their chances of securing work on the project and to develop their business to meet the needs of construction companies in the future.

Information sessions will be held to ensure local businesses are fully informed and can upskill, before the commencement of procurement from the main construction contractors. This will include presentations on:

  • supply chain requirements
  • how to stand out from the crowd
  • tailoring business profiles to meet the needs of contractors.

It is important that businesses register with the Industry Capability Network (ICN) to receive updates and notifications regarding these opportunities.

Supplier Registration of Interest (ROI)

Suppliers are encouraged to register their interest to provide materials or services to the principal contractors and TMR. TMR will make available the list of interested suppliers to the principal contractors. The successful principal contractors may then run its own procurement process amongst the suppliers and other entities it may wish to engage.

Information on specific supply opportunities will be communicated on the ICN Gateway project page as they become available, with local industry able to register its interest against them.

Please ensure that:

  • your company profile on the ICN Gateway is complete, up-to-date and accurate including electing to be notified via e-mail of supply opportunities
  • you register your interest as a full or partial scope supplier (where applicable)
  • you respond to all project and work package-specific questions.

It is important that businesses submitting an ROI are aware that their submission does not guarantee that they will progress further in the procurement process.  TMR may, in its absolute discretion, exclude any business from progressing any further for any reason, or decide not to proceed with the procurement process. TMR gives no representation or undertaking that any business submitting an ROI will be contacted by a potential principal contractor or successful tenderer. Further, registration does not guarantee any volume of orders. Only businesses that can demonstrate capability and capacity in accordance with the project’s standards may be invited to pre-qualify for specific opportunities. By submitting an ROI, you acknowledge and agree that TMR will not be liable for any claim arising out of, or in any way in connection with this ROI.

The tendering process will commence with an industry briefing on the project. Following this, suitably qualified contractors will be required to request to participate in the Expression of Interest process.

TMR strongly encourage local industry to contact the ICN Queensland in the first instance to improve their understanding of the ROI process.
