Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Separate tenders have been called for environmental and engineering services for the Maldon to Dombarton Rail Link, with both tenders to be awarded before the end of next month.
The successful tenderer for the environmental services contract will prepare an environmental impact assessment outlining the potential impacts of the proposed project, based on ecological, heritage and other field studies that have already been undertaken.
For the engineering services tender, the successful team will use earlier technical work to develop detailed tunnel, bridge and track designs to be included in a future construction contract.
Recently, Whelan’s InSites was appointed to overfly the line with a laser camera to provide an accurate map of the corridor, identifying underground utility services and locating existing track, fauna crossings and adjoining roads.
Transport specialists WorleyParsons is assisting the project team in reviewing options to improve freight access.
Completing the freight link will involve laying 35 kilometres of new track, building new bridges over the Nepean and CordeauxRivers, and constructing one of Australia’s longest rail tunnels. The completed rail line will link Port Kembla to the Main South Line at Picton directly
The Federal Government has committed $25.5 million for planning and pre-construction work for the Maldon to Dombarton Rail Link.
