The Victorian government has named an alliance including CIMIC’s Leighton Contractors as the preferred group for a $480 million project to design and construct four Melbourne railway level crossing removals.
Revenue flowing to Leighton from the project will be confirmed when contracts are executed in coming months, CIMIC (CIM) said in a statement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“Australian infrastructure investment like this is creating a pipeline of work suited to CIMIC Group’s expertise in design, construction and operations and maintenance services for transport infrastructure,” CIMIC chief executive Marcelino Fernandez Verdes said.
The alliance, which also includes Aurecon and Hyder Consulting, VicRoads, Public Transport Victoria and Metro Trains Melbourne, will remove two level crossings in St Albans and one each in Blackburn and Mitcham.
The Victorian government plans to remove 50 dangerous level crossings in Melbourne over the next eight years, with the first 20 scheduled for the next four years.
The $480m project covering four crossings includes $151m from the federal government towards works at Main Road in St Albans.
