Romania: Galati Urban Transport Rehabilitation Project – Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan

 | Published October 16, 2014  -  Deadline November 13, 2014
cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): The City of Galati Assignment Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD" or the "Bank") intends to provide a loan to the City of Galati to fund the key investments in the urban transport sector and related infrastructure (the "Project"). The Project is financed by an up to EUR 22.6 million loan from the EBRD to the City. Galati, with a population of 250,000, is a significant commercial and industrial centre in southeast Romania, with the local economy related to steel processing (Mittal), ship manufacturing (Damen Shipyards) and adjacent industries. Galati has about 345 kilometres of streets in total. It is noted that the City has already completed the first phase of the urban infrastructure upgrade with a total amount of about EUR 14 million and has one project for Intelligent Traffic Management with a total value of EUR 4 million in implementation, -, co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund; however, there are still investment needs in the urban transport sector and related infrastructure. The Project consists of the following three components: a) Street and Water rehabilitation: b) Acquisition of 14 trolley buses; and c) Implementation of an Automated Ticketing System. The Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, inclusive and sustainable growth highlighted the importance of a modernised and sustainable European transport system for the future development of the Union and stressed the need to address the urban dimension of transport. A Communication from the Commission "Together towards competitive and resource-efficient urban mobility" was issued in December 2013 and sent to the European institutions aiming to encourage the Member States to take more decisive and better coordinated actions. The Annex to the COM (2013) 913 presents a concept for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans ("SUMPs"). In January 2014, Guidelines for the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans were published in order to provide local authorities with concrete suggestions on how to implement strategies for urban mobility that build on a thorough analysis of the current situation, as well as a clear vision for the sustainable development of their urban area. The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan concept considers the functional urban area and proposes that action on urban mobility is embedded into a wider urban and territorial strategy. Therefore, these Plans should be developed in cooperation across different policy areas and sectors (transport, land-use and spatial planning, environment, economic development, social policy, health, road safety, etc.); across different levels of government and administration; as well as with authorities in neighbouring areas – both urban and rural. The Romanian legislation (Law 350/2001 updated in December 2013 – on spatial and territorial planning and the related implementing norms) has included provisions on preparation of the mobility plans and approval system. The EU Regional Operational Programme -draft- 2014-2020, coordinated by the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration (“MRDPA”) includes a consistent component of urban development aiming to finance, among others, transport infrastructure, rolling stock, transport management systems. Nevertheless, the funds needed for improving the quality of urban areas and urban transport are about ten times more than the allocated budget for the programme. The SUMPs are a pre-requisite for applying/receiving UT EU funds during 2014-2020. In order to support the implementation of European requirements, under the MoU framework, EBRD is supporting the elaboration of 8 SUMPs for the main cities and their surrounding areas, namely: Bucharest-Ilfov, Iasi, Constanta, Brasov, Ploiesti, Craiova, Cluj si Timisoara. The 8 SUMPs are going to be finalised by July 2015. The EBRD are being consistent with the EU’s approach regarding urban transport and mobility, but also in view of ensuring correlation between sources of financing, the EBRD is supporting the City in the elaboration of its own SUMP. The planned purchase of 14 new trolley buses will improve the reliability and quality of public transport services for users and improve air quality through consistent reduction of carbon emissions. In order to accommodate the new trolley buses under the framework of the transport system for the City, a consultant (the "Consultant") is required to assist the City in developing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for Galati (the "Plan") to ensure best-practice urban transport planning and to identify opportunities for the diversification of business activities with potential for private sector participation. The main objective of this assignment is to develop the SUMP that will enable the City to manage mobility to be compatible with European and national requirements and identify the future priority investments in the sector. The SUMP will be based on an Urban Transport Model (GIS support) using a software platform. The Plan aims to create sustainable urban transport system by addressing, at a minimum, the following objectives: Ensuring that the transport system is available and accessible to all, such that urban public facilities including public transport can provide services on an inclusive basis; Improving safety and security in all modes of transport and reducing the number of accidents; Reducing air and noise pollution, greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions and energy consumption; Improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the transportation of persons, including defined sources of underlying funding and financing for such activities. This is understood to include both municipal and private transport providers; Contributing to enhancing the attractiveness and quality of the urban environment and urban design; Elaborate a general and specific set of indicators, regarding the mobility, socio-economic and urban development of the City, which will be monitored in evaluating the effectiveness of the Plan associated to the established objectives; Developing non-motorised modes and intermodal transport networks; Propose recommendations on Private Sector Participation ("PSP") opportunities in the provision of urban transport services in Galati municipality. A successful outcome of the assignment would be a Plan for Galati municipality, setting the context for phased investments for the period 2016-2030, agreed with regional and national authorities. The Consultant will support the approval of the plan by the local authorities. It is expected that the municipality will appoint a Counterpart Team aiming to develop and monitor the implementation of the 2016-2030 Plan on sustainable mobility and will seek to encourage the use of intermodal transport, as well as cycling and walking, discouraging private car use, especially for journeys to and from work. The Counterpart Team will assist the Consultant in data collection and will ensure the coordination of the Plan with other strategic documents, including the territorial planning documents, as requested by the Law 350/2001 updated in 2013 on territorial planning. The Counterpart Team will also support the Consultant in discussing the Plan with the experts in the field as well as with the civil society. Finally, the Plan has to be approved by the Technical Commission for territorial planning and the Commission for traffic and safety organised at the level of municipality, which will be mainly the responsibility of the Counterpart Team. Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in Q4 2014 and has an estimated overall duration of 6 months. Maximum Budget available for the Assignment: EUR 200,000 (exclusive of VAT).
