Sophia Rostron   |   December 12, 2016

Victoria's Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) has shortlisted four bidders for two significant packages of work in Melbourne's north and west, with construction due to start in 2017. 

Camp Road Level Crossing Removal 

Two consortiums, John Holland/Kellogg Brown Root and CPB Contractors/Aurecon Australasia, have been asked to tender for the contract to remove dangerous and congested level crossings at Camp Road in Campbellfield and Buckley Street in Essendon

Under the Program Alliance model, if these removals are delivered well, the successful bidder will retain the contract to remove more – at Glenroy Road in Glenroy, Bell Street in Coburg and Moreland Road in Brunswick.

Kororoit Creek Road Level Crossing Removal 

A further two consortiums, Coleman Rail/Seymour Whyte Constructions/Arcadis Australian and McConnell Dowell Constructors/Arup/Mott MacDonald, have also been invited to bid for the Abbotts Road level crossing in Dandenong South and the Kororoit Creek Road crossing in Williamstown North, as well as duplicating part of the Altona Loop to boost the reliability of services.

The successful consortium will also have the opportunity to deliver works at Aviation Road level crossing in Laverton, Ferguson Street crossing in Williamstown, and Cherry and Werribee Street crossings in Werribee.

The LXRA further reported that "each of the shortlisted companies demonstrated innovative design and an understanding of the specific needs of the project and will refine their bids over the coming months." 

The successful contractor is expected to be announced early next year.
