Contract awarded for Sydney light rail

1 Jun 12 John Holland has won the contract for the design and construction of the AU$176m (£110m) Inner West light rail extension in Sydney, Australia.

The contract covers the main infrastructure elements of the light rail extension, including nine new stations, bridge works and power and signalling systems.

“Along with the South West and North West rail links, the NSW Government is on the fast track to delivering additional heavy and light rail lines for Sydneysiders,” said New South Wales NSW premier Barry O’Farrell.

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian said that there will be workers on the tracks as early as next month as they begin to establish work sites and start on preparatory works such as geotechnical investigations.

Concurrently with these early works, John Holland will immediately get started on detailed design work for the stops and other light rail infrastructure.
