Suburban Rail Loop Works EOI for Early Works

Suburban Rail Loop Works EOI for Early Works

The Andrews Labor Government has opened Expressions of Interest for the biggest ever Initial and Early Works package on an infrastructure project in Australian history.  

Minister for Suburban Rail Loop Jacinta Allan today 07/12/2020 announced that interested parties are being sought to deliver the first phase of construction on Stage One of the Labor Government’s state-shaping project.  

The huge package of works will see roads and power supplies upgraded, new sub-stations built, utility relocations and protection, ground improvements, and sites across Melbourne’s south-east prepared to make way for massive TBMs.  

After registering in the pre-qualification process, some of Australia’s leading construction companies have signalled interest in delivering this program of works – which will create up to 800 direct jobs, ahead of the creation of up to 20,000 jobs during the project’s major construction process.  

The Victorian Budget 2020/21 invested EUR1.35 bn (AUD2.2 bn) to kickstart this procurement process, buy the land required for the TBM launches and facilitate construction of the six new underground stations at Cheltenham, Clayton, Monash, Glen Waverley, Burwood and Box Hill.  

Stage One will connect their growing health, education, retail and employment precincts in Melbourne’s south east between Cheltenham and Box Hill, via 26-km twin underground rail tunnels. Future stages will see the line continue through Melbourne’s northern suburbs to Melbourne Airport and around to Werribee.  

The proposed locations for the Stage One train stations include the starting point of the line near Southland, adjacent to Monash and Deakin universities, in the centre of Box Hill and Glen Waverley, and a major transport hub to be created north of Carinish Road, Clayton, connecting regional passengers to the Loop.
