CIMIC's CPB Contractors preferred for Metro Tunnel works

CIMIC Group company, CPB Contractors, as part of the Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA), has been named as the Victorian Government's preferred proponent to deliver a $1 billion package of works in support of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project.

CPB Contractors and John Holland are equal construction partners in the RIA, with AECOM as the design partner. The RIA also comprises project owner Rail Projects Victoria (formerly the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority) and operational franchisee Metro Trains Melbourne.

Revenue to CPB Contractors for the design and construct contract will be confirmed at contractual close, expected in the coming months. Construction is expected to commence in late 2018 and be completed in 2025.

This fourth major works package for the Metro Tunnel Project covers the existing Sunbury rail line between the western tunnel entrance in Kensington and Tottenham, and the Dandenong rail line between the eastern tunnel entrance in South Yarra and Caulfield Station.

Major works for the Alliance include the design and construction of entrance structures that will interface with Metro Tunnel works at South Yarra and Kensington.
