Inland Rail is set to host two networking events in Narrabri and Moree in late January 2020, giving local businesses the opportunity to meet and talk with the three shortlisted construction contractors for the Narrabri to North Star (N2NS) project.
The networking events will provide an opportunity for local businesses to hear from each of the shortlisted contractors and participate in one-on-one meetings with representatives from all three organisations.
Inland Rail Chief Executive Officer, Richard Wankmuller, said local businesses were keen to be involved in the project and these networking events would provide a platform to meet with and ask questions of the shortlisted contractors ahead of the announcement of the successful contractor in mid 2020.
“There are three excellent organisations bidding for this project including Lendlease Engineering, RailFirst (a joint venture between Downer EDI and Seymour White) and Trans4m Rail (a joint venture between Rhomberg Rail Australia, John Holland and SEE Civil),” Mr Wankmuller said.
“Each one will have representatives at this event to meet with local businesses and answer questions regarding potential supply opportunities on the N2NS project when construction starts.
“I know there is excitement building along the N2NS alignment as we move towards construction and local businesses should be taking advantage of opportunities like these to promote their capabilities to the shortlisted contractors.”
Mr Wankmuller said businesses interested in attending could prepare a business capability statement and a 30 second ‘elevator pitch’ ahead of the meetings to describe what their business does and where it’s located in a bid to streamline discussions with the contractors.
“The successful contractor will be required to deliver significant local industry and workforce participation and training outcomes, and the Australian Rail Track Corporation will work very closely with them and other stakeholders to achieve these outcomes,” Mr Wankmuller said.
“We see Inland Rail as a way to create meaningful change in communities along the alignment by developing a pathway to support longer term economic development and employment outcomes.
The events will be held at:
To take part in the events local businesses are being urged to register and book a meeting time at n2ns.youcanbook.me by 19 January 2020.
