Consultancy Services for Conceptual Design for the Upgrading Of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT-Lite) Scheme (Mile 12 - CMS)

The main objectives of this study are as follows:

To prepare a concept design for the upgrade of existing BRT Lite Scheme (Mile 12-CMS) so as to allow for the increased fleet capacity especially at the station areas allowing for the provision of passing lanes. This will also allow for more routes to be added thereby expanding the BRT network. The upgrade will enable us to achieve an efficient level of service along the corridor. It will also enable us minimise bus bunching and accommodate increased fleet which the planned BRT will generate. The consultant, amongst other things, will (1) Prepare conceptual drawings illustrating improved layouts of bus stations and lay-byes to enable overtaking of buses at stations. (2) Review and amend (if necessary) the new Mile 12 Terminal design drawings (from the designs of the Mile 12- lkorodu BRT Extension Project) to ascertain its functionality with the planned upgrade. (3) Review and redesign using Traffic management techniques, the egress and entry points on Ikorodu Road, between the service lanes, the BRT dedicated lanes and main carriageway lanes from Odo-Iya bridge to Ketu Bus Stop Area (both directions) with a view to improve traffic flow during the peak periods and reduce bottlenecks at existing points. (4) Prepare conceptual drawings of the buses in stop positioning relative to kerb face at the bus stations, in order to allow easy hoarding and reduced boarding time. This should take into consideration the present and planned bus types along the corridor (Mile 12- Ikorodu & Mile 12- CMS). (5) To enable LAMATA procure and engage a Civil Engineering & Project Management Consulting firm to undertake the detailed engineering designs & bidding documents for all infrastructure works to support this upgrade.
