Aecom wins work on Australia's biggest rail project

Aecom has announced today that it is part of a consortium that has been awarded a £355M contract for a package of work on Australia’s Regional Rail Link in the state of Victoria.

The Regional Rail Link currently is Australia’s largest public-transportation project and the first major rail line construction project for metropolitan Melbourne in 80 years. Aecom is part of a consortium of companies that have formed an alliance with Metro Trains Melbourne, V/Line and the Regional Rail Link Authority to deliver the project.

Under the contract from Victoria’s Department of Transport, Aecom will provide rail, structural, electrical, signaling and civil infrastructure design as well as geotechnical, waterway modeling and environmental management services for the project — which runs from Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station to the Maribyrnong River — until February 2015.Aecom is expected to earn revenue of £12.5M on the project.

Planning and design work will begin immediately, and major construction for the project is scheduled for completion during February 2015. The overall Regional Rail Link is expected to be complete in early 2016. AECOM’s work on the project is expected to conclude during February 2015.
