Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
UGL, a subsidiary of CIMIC Group, has secured an A$630m ($441.97m) contract extension with Sydney Trains.
As per the revised contract, UGL will deliver maintenance and logistics services for a portion of Sydney Trains’ metropolitan passenger rail fleet for an additional five years.
Effective from 1 July, the contract replaces the two-year extension announced in January.
The scope of works includes providing heavy maintenance, component rehabilitation works and supply chain capabilities, as well as providing engineering and depot-related support.
UGL managing director Jason Spears said: “This significant contract extension further confirms UGL’s position as a market leader in rail maintenance and asset management, and our reputation for delivering reliable rolling stock asset management and maintenance.”
All services under the contract will be delivered by UGL Unipart, the company’s joint venture (JV) with Unipart Rail UK. The company holds a 70% stake.
The JV will utilise UGL’s asset management and maintenance capabilities to provide maintenance services. It will also leverage Unipart Rail UK’s expertise, which offers technology and supply chain solutions to the rail industry.
CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright said: “We are very pleased to be extending our long-standing relationship with Sydney Trains and Transport for NSW, building on a partnership that has spanned several decades.
