The Queensland Government has announced the companies shortlisted for the contract to build the Cross River Rail.
QLD Acting Premier, Jackie Trad, said the announcement followed a comprehensive evaluation by the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority of the Expressions of Interest received for the project’s two major works packages: The Tunnel, Stations and Development (TSD) public-private partnership, and the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) alliance.
“Cross River Rail is a transformational project that will unlock the bottleneck at the core of our transport network and increase its capacity to deliver ‘turn-up-and-go’ public transport,” Ms Trad said.
“Shortlisted companies will now be required to prepare detailed bids that demonstrate innovation and offer Queenslanders the highest possible value for money.
“Once the assessment process is complete, the consortia selected from these shortlists will be building this project.”
The Expressions of Interest process was opened in September 2017, with the evaluation starting in November 2017.
