Aurizon today commenced consultation with employees on proposed changes to rollingstock maintenance operations in Queensland, as part of the companys transformation program announced in mid-2013 to reduce costs, improve operational efficiency across numerous facilities and to focus on its core business of rail freight.
The review has resulted in Aurizon proposing to cease passenger-related maintenance contracts it performs on a commercial basis for Queensland Rail at its Townsville and Redbank (south east Queensland) workshops, as those contracts expire at the end of June 2014 and June 2015, respectively.
There is also a proposal to reduce existing capacity across the two workshops in Townsville and Redbank because it exceeds current and forecast maintenance demand for freight operations by Aurizon.
For more information, please view the full announcement on the Aurizon website.
