Laing O’Rourke team wins AU$89m Australian rail contract
June 14, 2019 – An alliance of Laing O’Rourke, Jacobs and Metro (MTM) has signed a AU$89m (£48m) contract to remove a dangerous and congested level crossing in the state of Victoria in Australia.
The level crossing is closed for 35% of the morning peak, creating a major bottleneck. Its removal will help to improve safety and reduce congestion for thousands of people travelling to the Monash Freeway and CityLink via Toorak Road, Glenferrie Road and Tooronga Road.
The same team has already carried out other projects to remove level crossings.
Early works and site set-up will start in coming weeks, with the level crossing removal to be completed by 2021.
