KBR wins Australian rail infrastructure project


KBR, a major engineering and construction company, said it has been awarded a program alliance contract for railroad crossing removal projects in Victoria, Australia .

Under the terms of the contract awarded by the Victorian Government, KBR will remove two railroad crossings in an integrated alliance with John Holland, Metro Trains and the Level Crossing Removal Authority.

These projects are likely to start in the coming months and will be completed next year with KBR providing engineering and design services for the crossing removals and associated works.

Subject to these projects being delivered in line with strict performance measures, the alliance has the potential to extend the contract to remove a further four railroad crossings.

The works are being undertaken by the Victorian Government as part of its program to remove 50 of the most dangerous and congested railroad crossings across the city of Melbourne.

Last year, KBR and its alliance partners successfully delivered the first four railroad crossing removals as part of this government initiative.

"This latest contract builds on KBR's decade long involvement in railroad crossing removals in Victoria and adds to our current portfolio of major rail infrastructure projects in Australia," remarked Greg Conlon, the company president for Asia Pacific.

"This includes early works for the multi-billion dollar Metro Tunnel and extension to the Mernda metropolitan line, both in Victoria , the Torrens Rail Junction Project in South Australia and the Sydney Metro project in New South Wales," he stated.

"We are pleased to be part of these transformational infrastructure projects that are creating jobs, stimulating local economies and delivering safer roads and railways for Australian communities," added Conlon.-TradeArabia News Service
