"The design of the current Smart Card ticketing framework has been substantially completed and RPA has received approval from the Minister for Transport to proceed with procuring an organisation to build the required systems."
"The next step is to commence a procurement for an organisation to provide and implement the necessary systems. It is envisaged that this phase shall take 27 months from commencement to first use of the ITS card"
Just noticed this had changed from "We are currently waiting for the Transport Minister to give this the go-ahead." When did the Minister decide to proceed? Take it it means end of next year is out then.
