Project Description:

November 18, 2019 - Addendum 1 Posted



RFP No. 2019-PCRP-32

Instructions to Proponents


The Capital Regional District (“CRD”) invites detailed proposals from consultants (the "Proponents") in strict accordance with these Proposal Documents (CRD, RFP No. 2019-PCRP-32).  The proposals will be evaluated for the selection of a consultant (or consultants) with the intent to enter into a contract (the “Contract”) to provide the services described in Appendix “A”.

The general purpose of this project is to develop and recommend conceptual designs for separating or widening two segments of CRD Regional Trails based on an analysis of the engineering feasibility, costs, benefits and best-practices. The project will also include an assessment and recommendations for lighting the segments of trail.

The segments of regional trail to be assessed are shown in Appendix E and are designated as Bike and Pedestrian Trails in the CRD Regional Trails Management Plan (Appendix F).

The trails are largely owned by the Province of British Columbia and the CRD has jurisdiction to operate the public multi-use trails within the corridor. The segments of trail to be assessed for this project are within the City of Victoria and the District of Saanich. The project will ensure that all applicable bylaws and provincial and federal requirements are considered. An inventory of legal and physical barriers and existing infrastructure within the trail corridors has been conducted and will be available to the successful proponent, along with relevant trail use data.

A Contract will not necessarily result from this Request for Proposal (“RFP”).
