Contractors, designers and suppliers are being sought for the $9-11 billion The Melbourne Metro Rail Project.
The project is currently in the planning and pre-construction phase, with major construction scheduled to commence in 2018.
Melbourne Metro Rail is seeking interest from the market on five proposed work packages.
One package is a Public Private Partnership valued at approximately $5 billion and will include design and construction of the twin nine-kilometre tunnels and five underground stations, private finance and the provision of maintenance and other services during the operating term. The EOI for the PPP contract is expected to be released in mid 2016.
Certain early works will be delivered under a separate contract, including utility services relocation and protection and other site preparatory works. The EOI for this early works contract will be released in November 2015.
There will be several Alliance packages to deliver works that need to be integrated with the existing rail network in a live operational environment.
Melbourne Metro Rail will also be looking to partner with companies with knowledge and experience in managing complex projects in busy urban environments.
