Expressions of Interest are now open for contractors who can deliver major upgrades on three regional Victorian rail lines as part of the $1.75 billion Regional Rail Revival.
With the Ballarat Line Upgrade underway, the program is now set to expand across the state with another major package of works out to market.
Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, Michael McCormack, said the Ballarat line’s transformation is the first Regional Rail Revival project to get underway, and similar upgrades would soon be replicated on other regional lines across Victoria.
“I’m delighted to announce we’re seeking Expressions of Interest to design and build the bulk of the Gippsland Line Upgrade, Shepparton Line Upgrade, and Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade,” he said.
“Packaging these projects together will mean works on these crucial regional upgrades can get underway and allows the most capable and experienced construction companies in Victoria to compete for this multi-million-dollar package of works.”
Victorian Minister for Transport Infrastructure, Jacinta Allan, said more than a year of planning and design work had taken place to reach this important milestone and get these projects out to market.
“The specialist project teams at Rail Projects Victoria have undertaken extensive investigations to determine the infrastructure needed to deliver benefits to passengers on these lines,” Ms Allan said.
