Balfour Beatty wins Australian rail link project

A joint venture of Balfour Beatty, Thiess and Sinclair Knight Merz has been awarded a $835M (£535M) contract for work on a section of the Regional Rail Link project in Melbourne, Australia.

The project, which will run from Footscray to Deer Park, involves the construction of 7.5km of new track, rail bridges, a new station at West Footscray, and upgrades and improvements to the current infrastructure.

Contractor Balfour Beatty will put in place the rail systems including signalling and track and will act as the programme manager for the project. It will also provide a professional services role through consultant subsidiary Parsons Brinckerhoff.

Major works are expected to commence in early 2012.
