          Where an item for an element of work does not appear in the Schedule of Rates, the cost thereof shall be
          deemed to be included in the rate or price for the item associated with that element of work. Where there is
          no item associated with that element of work the cost thereof shall be deemed to be included in the rates or
          prices generally. Where any item in the Schedule of Rates is unpriced by the Contractor all costs
          applicable to that item shall be deemed to be included elsewhere in the Schedule of Rates.

5.3       Schedule of Rates for Variations

If a Schedule of Rates for Variations has been prepared for this Contract, it may be used to value work which has
been ordered in lieu of, or as additional to, the items of work specified. It may be used to value the work where the
Superintendent determines that the variation is of a similar nature to that described in the Schedule of Rates for
Variations.

5.4       Schedule of Rates for Daywork

Further to Clause 41 “Daywork” of the General Conditions of Contract, if a Schedule of Rates for Daywork has

Superintendent and shall be used for the purposes of calculating payment for any work ordered to be carried out by
Daywork pursuant to this Contract and not specifically detailed as an item in the Schedules or applicable under the
Schedule of Rates for Variations. Plant rates are deemed to be inclusive of operators and maintenance. The
requirement for the Contractor to supply supervision of Daywork ordered shall be agreed between the Contractor
and the Superintendent prior to the work commencing.

The rates in the Schedule of Rates for Daywork shall include for transport of equipment to the site. Payment for
additional transport costs for items of plant which are taken off the site during the Contract will only be considered
where the accepted program clearly indicates the period of time that the Contractor intended that item of plant to be
on the site. The Contractor shall submit rates for approval and inclusion in the Schedule of Rates for Daywork if
additional items of plant are brought on to the site during the course of the Contract.

6.        LUMP SUM

6.1       General

If a Lump Sum forms part of the Contract, the Lump Sum shall be deemed to include the cost of all works, services,
fees, charges, minor items and incidentals associated with or necessary for the proper execution of the Works
relating to the Lump Sum part of the Contract whether or not such works, services and incidentals are specifically
referred to in the Contract.

If a Schedule of Prices or Schedule of Quantities and Prices has been prepared for this Contract the amounts in these
Schedules shall include the cost of all survey, inspection, measuring and testing requirements of the Specification
relating to the Lump Sum part of the Contract.

the Contract Sum for the Lump Sum part of the Contract excluding GST.

The amounts included in the Schedule of Prices and the Schedule of Quantities and Prices:
      (a) are to be used for the purpose of valuing variations if and in so far as the Superintendent determines that those
          amounts are applicable to the variation; and
      (b) may be used at the discretion of the Superintendent as a guide in valuing the work for progress payments.

Any errors discovered in the Schedule of Prices or Schedule of Quantities and Prices shall be brought to the
attention of the other party as soon as practicable after discovery. The error shall be corrected in a manner agreed to
between the Contractor and the Superintendent or, in the event of failure to agree, in the manner determined by the
Superintendent so that in any event the total of all items in the Schedule of Prices or Schedule of Quantities and
Prices continues to equal the Contract Sum for the Lump Sum part of the Contract.

following:

          Security shall be lodged within 14 days of the Date of Acceptance of Tender. Where a Contractor has failed
          to lodge the necessary Security in accordance with the requirements of this Contract, the Principal may
          deduct an amount equivalent to the required Security from any payment due to the Contractor and hold this
          amount as retention.

9.        EVIDENCE OF CONTRACT

9.1       Formal Instrument of Agreement

The first paragraph of Clause 6.2 "Formal instrument of Agreement" of the General Conditions of Contract is
deleted and replaced with the following:

          If stated in the letter of acceptance, the Principal will prepare a Formal Instrument of Agreement and the
          Contractor shall execute all copies in the manner described in the letter.


Notwithstanding any other provision of the Contract, and without prejudice to any other right or remedy which the

executes both copies of the Formal Instrument of Agreement.

9.2       Entire Agreement

This Contract constitutes the entire agreement of the parties in respect of the matters dealt with in this Contract and
supersedes all prior agreements, understandings, representations or negotiations in respect of the matters dealt with
in this Contract. Any modification of this Contract must be in writing and signed by each Party.

The obligations of the Contractor, if more than one person, under this Contract, are joint and several and each person
constituting the Contractor acknowledges and agrees that it will be causally responsible for the acts and omissions
(including breaches of this Contract) of the other as if those acts or omissions were its own.

10.       SUBCONTRACTING

                    (in this Clause called "subcontractor") agrees to perform work on the Site, or supply plant,
                    materials or services comprising part of the work under the Contract; and


DTEI XXCxxx                                                                                                           Page 4
Edition: March 2011                                                                         Special Conditions of Contract

                  "Secondary subcontract" shall have the meaning ascribed to that term in AS 2545: 1993
                  Subcontract Conditions.

         The Contractor shall not without the written approval of the Superintendent, which approval shall not be
         unreasonably withheld, subcontract or allow a subcontractor to assign or enter into a secondary subcontract
         for any of the work under the Contract.

         With a request for approval, the Contractor shall provide to the Superintendent:
             (a) particulars in writing of the work to be subcontracted and the name and the address of the
                 proposed subcontractor;
             (b) where the proposed subcontract sum for the particular work is greater than $1,100,000, an
                 unpriced copy of the subcontract document, which shall incorporate either:
                         AS 2545 Subcontract Conditions and contain no amendments to those subcontract
                          conditions other than those necessary to reflect the head contract Conditions of Contract; or
                         other Subcontract Conditions approved by the Superintendent;
             (c) where the proposed subcontract sum for the particular work is less than or equal to $1,100,000,
                 written confirmation that the terms and conditions of the proposed subcontract are consistent with
                 those in the head contract Conditions of Contract;
             (d) a written warranty, the breach of which shall be deemed to be a substantial breach of contract for
                 the purposes of Clause 44.2 of the General Conditions of Contract, that the subcontract will be
                 entered into in accordance with the requirements of this Clause; and
             (e) any other information which the Superintendent reasonably requests, including the proposed
                 subcontract documents without prices.

         Within 14 days after a request by the Contractor for approval, the Superintendent shall advise the
         Contractor of approval or the reasons why approval is not given.

         Approval may be conditional upon the subcontract including:
             (a) provision that the subcontractor shall not assign or enter into a secondary subcontract for any of
                 the work under the Contract without the consent in writing of the Contractor; and
             (b) provisions which may be reasonably necessary to enable the Contractor to fulfil the Contractor's
                 obligations to the Principal.

11.      PROVISIONAL SUMS AND PROVISIONAL QUANTITIES

Clause 11 “Provisional Sums” of the General Conditions of Contract is deleted and replaced with the following:

         “Provisional sum” includes principal controlled allowances, prime cost items and contingency sums.

         “Provisional quantity” includes provisional items.

         Work identified as a provisional quantity or as a provisional sum in an applicable payment schedule shall
         only be carried out at the direction of the Superintendent. The valuation of any provisional work carried
         out shall be determined in accordance with Clause 40.5. Where the provisional work is carried out by a
         subcontractor and there is no applicable rate in the payment schedules, the Contractor shall be entitled to
         payment for profit and attendance calculated by reference to the methodology stated in Item 25 of the
         Annexure.

         In the event of any provisional sum being greater or less than the amount directed by the Superintendent to
         be expended against the provisional sum, the amount unexpended or the amount of the difference shall be
         taken into account in determining the final amount payable under the Contract.

         In the event of any provisional quantity being greater than or lesser than the provisional quantity actually
         carried out, the value of the difference between the provisional quantity and the actual quantity shall be
         taken into account in determining the final amount payable under the Contract.




DTEI XXCxxx                                                                                                        Page 5

             The limit of accuracy for provisional quantities and provisional sums is ± 100% of the quantity or sum
             stated.

             The Contractor is not entitled to overheads and profit related to provisional sums and provisional quantities
             that are not expended.

12.          LATENT CONDITIONS AND RISK ALLOCATION

12.1         Definition of Latent Condition

For the purpose of determining whether physical conditions are a Latent Condition, the determination shall be made
on the premise that the Contractor is competent and experienced in the work which is the subject of the Contract.

12.2         General

Except for risks specifically reserved to the Principal in this Clause or elsewhere in this Contract, the Contractor
accepts all risks associated with the development of the design and the execution of the works under the Contract.

12.3         Risk Allocation Table

This Subclause only applies where Schedule 24 “Risk Allocation Table” has been included in this Contract.

Risks allocated to the Contractor

Notwithstanding Clause 12.3 "Extension of Time and Cost” of the General Conditions of Contract, for those risks
allocated to the Contractor in Schedule 24 “Risk Allocation Table”, the Contractor is responsible for, and assumes
the risk of, all increased costs and any damage, expense, loss, liability or delay it suffers or incurs arising out of or in
connection with that risk.

Risks Allocated to the Principal

For those risks allocated to the Principal in Schedule 24 “Risk Allocation Table”, a valuation will be made under
Clause 40.5 of the General Conditions of Contract in the event that the Contractor:
       (a)   carries out more work,
       (b)   uses more construction plant, or
       (c)   incurs more cost (including but not limited to extra costs for delay or disruption),
as a consequence of, or in connection with that risk.

13.          INFORMATION DOCUMENTS

13.1         Information Documents

Where a document is designated as an “information document” or “for information only”, the Principal does not
warrant, guarantee, assume any duty of care or other responsibility for or make any representation about the
accuracy, adequacy, suitability or completeness of such documents and the Contractor acknowledges that it has
taken this into account.

13.2         Reports of Investigation

The Principal may have carried out investigations for the primary purposes of project planning, estimating,
feasibility studies and obtaining statutory approvals. Any such investigations have not been undertaken for the
primary purpose of determining methods of construction and the Contractor is deemed to have taken this intent into
consideration.

Reports of these investigations will contain factual information (e.g. traffic counts, bore logs) and may contain
interpretations / opinions (e.g. projected traffic growth, a recommendation concerning geometric design). Where
these reports (or part thereof) are included in the appendices to this Contract or referenced in this Contract, the
Contractor may rely upon factual information contained in the reports. However, the use of any interpretations /
opinions is entirely at the risk of the Contractor and the Principal accepts no liability for interpretations / opinions
contained within a report or the completeness of a report.

DTEI XXCxxx                                                                                                           Page 6
Edition: March 2011                                                                       Special Conditions of Contract


13.3     Geotechnical Investigation

Where geotechnical investigations (including pavement investigations) have been provided by the Principal, the
investigations have been carried out by competent personnel. Factual information (e.g. bore logs, test results) from
the investigation is considered to be a true record of the investigations and tests conducted.

The investigations relate only to the specific locations tested as shown in the document. Sub-surface conditions may
vary between test locations or at depths below which testing has been carried out.

The level of any groundwater present has been recorded in any bore logs at the time of conducting the investigation.
The Contractor is deemed to have taken into account the variation in groundwater levels and moisture condition that
will occur with seasonal changes or as a result of other factors.

If the Contractor undertakes any geotechnical investigation, the Contractor shall provide all details of the
investigation to the Superintendent within one week of the Date of Acceptance of Tender, if the details have not
been provided beforehand.

14.      CARE OF WORK AND REINSTATEMENT OF DAMAGE

Subclause (f) beginning with “defects in such part of …” of Clause 16.3 “Excepted Risks” of the General
Conditions of Contract is deleted from this Contract and replaced with “act of terrorism”.

15.      INSURANCE

15.1     Insurance Provided by the Contractor

Where the Contractor has the obligation to effect and maintain insurance, the Contractor shall produce such
evidence to the Principal at the time of signing the Formal Instrument of Agreement.

15.2     Principal Arranged Insurance

Where the Principal has the obligation to effect and maintain insurance, the Contractor shall bear or pay any excess
or deductible which is applicable to any claim made under any of the policies of insurance effected under Clauses 18
or 19 of the General Conditions of Contract, except where the claim is with respect to loss or damage which is the
direct consequence, without fault or omission on the part of the Contractor, of an Excepted Risk defined in Clause
16.3 of the General Conditions of Contract.

If the Contractor considers that any insurance provided by the Principal does not adequately cover the Contractor‟s
liabilities, it is the responsibility of the Contractor to take out and pay for any additional insurance that the
Contractor considers necessary.


16.      APPROVALS AND NOTICES

Unless stated otherwise, where the Specification requires the Contractor to seek approval or an acceptance, the
Superintendent is responsible for the decision whether to grant the approval or acceptance. Where requested, the
Contractor shall provide evidence or supporting information to demonstrate that the use of any proprietary product
or commencing any activity would not be detrimental to the quality or performance of the Works. The provision of
an approval is at the sole discretion of the Superintendent.

A request for approval or acceptance shall constitute a HOLD POINT.

Granting of the approval or acceptance shall not, in whole or in part, absolve the Contractor from responsibility for
the satisfactory performance or execution of the work subject to the approval or acceptance.

Where this Contract requires the Contractor to provide notice, samples, advice, plans, documentation, records, test
results or other information, this shall be provided to the Superintendent, unless stated otherwise.

A joint inspection means an inspection with the Contractor and Superintendent present.

22.        RISE AND FALL

This Contract is not subject to adjustment for rise and fall of costs.

22.        RISE AND FALL

22.1       General

The Principal will pay or deduct an amount for rise and fall on the bituminous binder, polymer modified binder and
cutter used in this Contract. Adjustment of payment for rise and fall will not be paid for any other part of the work
or supply of materials under this Contract.

This amount will be determined by the following formula:

Amount =             EVbit x Abit+ EVPMB x APMB + EVcut x Acut

where:
           EVbit =           Effective Value for C170/C320 Bituminous Binder
           Abit =            Cost Adjustment Factor for C170/C320 Bituminous Binder
           EVPMB =           Effective Value for Polymer Modified Binder
           APMB =            Cost Adjustment Factor for Polymer Modified Binder
           EVcut =           Effective Value for Bituminous Cutter
           Acut =            Cost Adjustment Factor for Bituminous Cutter

Where the Cost Adjustment Factor is positive, the amount calculated for rise and fall shall be added to the value of
the payment to be made in respect of the progress certificate or the final certificate.

Where the Cost Adjustment Factor is negative, the amount calculated for rise and fall shall be subtracted from the
value of the payment to be made in respect of the progress certificate or the final certificate.

22.2       Calculation of The Effective Value

The Effective Value is the value of C170/C320 bituminous binder, Polymer Modified Bitumen and Cutter (as
applicable) incorporated into the work included in the progress certificate or the final certificate, less the Effective
Value in respect of previous progress payments, disregarding any increase or decrease under this Clause.

22.3       Calculation of the Cost Adjustment Factors

The Cost Adjustment Factor will be determined by the following formulae:




DTEI XXCxxx                                                                                                        Page 10

                              Cn - Co 
                      Acut =          
                              Co 

where:

Bn =     Current Bitumen Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Price for C170/C320 bitumen
from the bitumen supplier for the work, applicable at the date that the work subject of the certificate was carried out.

Bo =     Base Bitumen Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Price for C170/C320 bitumen from
the bitumen supplier for the work, applicable at the date of close of tenders.

PMBn = Current Polymer Modified Bitumen Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Prices for
polymer modified bitumen from the bitumen supplier for the work under the Contract, applicable at the date that the
work subject of the certificate was carried out.

PMBo = Base Polymer Modified Bitumen Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Prices for
polymer modified bitumen from the bitumen supplier for the work under the Contract, applicable at the date of close
of tenders.

Cn = Current Cutter Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Prices for the cutter from the supplier
for the work under the Contract, applicable at the date that the work subject of the certificate was carried out.

Co = Base Cutter Index Number, which shall be the Published List Selling Prices for the cutter from the supplier for
the work under the Contract, applicable at the date of close of tenders.

Where the Contractor sources bituminous products from more than one supplier, the appropriate Index Number from
each supplier shall be used to calculate Rise and Fall for that proportion of the bituminous product supplied by that
supplier.

The base index numbers shall be as listed in Schedule 7 “Published List Selling Prices for C170 & C320 bitumen,
polymer modified bitumen and cutter”.

22.4     Cost Adjustment on Work Completed After the Date for Practical Completion

Where a payment is made to the Contractor in respect of any work under the Contract executed subsequent to the
Date for Practical Completion then an amount for rise and fall for any such work will be calculated using Bn, PMBn
and Cn applicable at the Date for Practical Completion.

22       RISE AND FALL

22.1     General

The Principal will pay or deduct an amount for rise and fall on the Contractor‟s construction works. This amount
will be determined by the following formula:

         Amount =           EVbit x Abit + EVnonbit x Anonbit

where:

         EVbit =            Effective Value for Bituminous Works

         EVnonbit =         Effective Value for Non-Bituminous Works

         Abit =             Cost Adjustment Factor for Bituminous Works

DTEI XXCxxx                                                                                                      Page 11

           Anonbit =          Cost Adjustment Factor for Non-Bituminous Works.

Where the Cost Adjustment Factor is positive, the amount calculated for rise and fall shall be added to the value of
the payment to be made in respect of the progress certificate or the final certificate.

Where the Cost Adjustment Factor is negative, the amount calculated for rise and fall shall be subtracted from the
value of the payment to be made in respect of the progress certificate or the final certificate.

22.2       Calculation of the Effective Value

The Effective Value appropriate to the type of work under consideration is the value of work included in the
progress certificate or the final certificate less all of the following:
       (a) the Effective Value in respect of previous progress payments, disregarding any increase or decrease under
           this Clause;
       (b) the value of any work included on the basis of actual cost or current prices;
       (c) the value of any work which any Clause of this Contract provides is not subject to adjustment for rise and
           fall in costs;
       (d) the value of any work which is subject to adjustment for rise and fall in costs on a different basis from that
           provided for by this Clause.

22.3       Calculation of the Cost Adjustment Factors

For Bituminous Works, the Cost Adjustment Factor will be determined by the following formula:

                        Ln - Lo        Pn - Po        Mn - Mo        Bn - Bo 
