Queensland awards Cross River Rail RIS package contract

The Government of Queensland in Australia has awarded a contract to Unity Alliance to deliver the rail, integration and systems (RIS) package for the Cross River Rail project.

The Government of Queensland in Australia has awarded a contract to Unity Alliance to deliver the rail, integration and systems (RIS) package for the Cross River Rail project.

The Unity Alliance consortium comprises CIMIC Group companies, CPB Contractors and UGL, as well as AECOM and Jacobs.

The latest contract award follows the signing of an agreement with the Pulse consortium last month to deliver the tunnel, stations and development PPP package for the Cross River Rail project. The Pulse consortium also includes CIMIC Group companies.

Under the RIS package contract, Unity Alliance will design, supply and install supporting rail systems, as well as carry out brownfield works to integrate the Cross River Rail with existing train network.

The package includes signalling and telecommunications works, upgrading Exhibition station, refurbishing Mayne Yard and improving rail operational systems.

CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright said: “CIMIC Group continues to provide essential infrastructure for the cities and local communities in which we live, providing important new services and helping to drive economic development.

UGL managing director Jason Spears said: “We look forward to delivering a fully integrated solution alongside our Alliance partners which will provide benefits across Brisbane and South-East Queensland.”

Early Cross River Rail project works have already commenced. The majority of the construction works are expected to complete in 2024.
