Registrations of Interest open for Inland Rail project

Monica Gameng   |   September 11, 2017

Registrations of Interest (ROIs) are being called to build a 107-kilometre section of the multi-billion dollar Inland Rail project.

According to Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester, this massive project will be providing significant opportunities for suppliers and businesses – including construction companies – to build the Parkes to Narromine section of the Inland Rail.

“The Parkes to Narromine project is a major priority within the Inland Rail project and construction is expected to start early next year.

“The work will involve upgrading the existing rail corridor including the construction of a new 5.2-kilometre connection in a greenfield corridor.

“Suitably experienced companies are invited to apply to join a shortlist which will then proceed to a formal Expressions of Interest phase. Evaluation criteria will include company experience, suitability for the project, and a demonstrated ability to carry out the works,” Mr Chester said.

The Inland Rail will serve as a connection between Brisbane and Melbourne, and the project will be supporting thousands of jobs across regional Australia – including up to 16,000 direct and indirect jobs during peak construction.

The project will involve the following:

  • Upgrading and reconstructing sections of the existing track
  • Construction, track and civil works for the new connection corridor
  • Upgrading, relocating and consolidating existing level crossings
  • Potential relocation or protection of utility services
  • Ancillary works such as flood immunity, stormwater, draining and fencing improvements

ROI submissions will close on 22nd of September 2017. Interested parties can submit their ROI documents through the TenderLink website here.
