CIMICíS CPB Contractors Wins Metro Tunnel Rail Works Sidney

CIMIC Group company, CPB Contractors, as part of the Rail Systems Alliance (RSA), has been awarded works by the Victorian Government in support of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project, the state's biggest ever investment in public transport.

CPB Contractors (as principal contractor) and Bombardier Transportation are partners in the RSA, with the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) and Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM). The $1.1 billion design and construct contract will generate revenue of approximately $312 million to CPB Contractors.

Construction as part of the RSA is expected to commence in 2018 and be completed by 2026.

CPB Contractors will deliver all site construction services, including civil works, and lead the design, supply, installation, testing, integration and commissioning activities for train and power control systems, operational control systems, and conventional and high capacity signalling on the new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line.

The RSA will also deliver safety and efficiency improvements at the five new underground Metro Tunnel stations through the installation of platform screen doors, the application of which will be a first for Melbourne.
