The Government of Victoria in Australia has opened a registration of interest (ROI) process seeking applications from interested parties to deliver the Suburban Rail Loop.
The ROI process will help the government to assess the experience and capabilities of interested organisations.
Overall, the ROI seeks applications from local and global firms with capabilities in designing, engineering, rolling stock and rail system manufacturing, as well as from investors, financiers and architects.
The Suburban Rail Loop is a proposed underground orbital rail network that will connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs.
The project involves new stations connecting major railway lines from the Frankston line to the Werribee line through Melbourne Airport.
Once complete, the project will connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs to all priority growth precincts, linking the residents with major health, education and employment centres.
Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said: “As we get on with our suburban transport blitz, we’re also getting on with planning the next stage of projects our growing city and state needs.
“The Suburban Rail Loop will create tens of thousands of jobs during construction and will change the way we move around Melbourne forever, slashing travel times and getting you where you need to go.”
The commencement of the ROI process follows the beginning of the stakeholder engagement process for the Suburban Rail Loop project.
Stakeholder engagement processes focus on the first stage of the project, which includes the South East Section between Cheltenham and Box Hill.
The government will seek opinions from communities, local authorities, peak bodies and other stakeholders in the process.
Site investigations, including ecology and geotechnical studies, are expected to begin later this year.
