Alliance finalise $900M Cross River Rail contract

The Unity Alliance partners have reached a contract award with the Queensland Government for the Cross River Rail Project.

This award is to deliver the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) package of the Cross River Rail Project.

The Unity Alliance brings together CBP Contractors, UGL, AECOM and Jacobs.

Crucial to the overall delivery of the Cross River Rail project, the RIS package will deliver the design, supply and installation of the supporting rail systems and brownfield works to integrate Cross River Rail into the wider Queensland Rail network.

The package includes an upgrade of the existing Exhibition Station, augmentation of Mayne Yard and rail operational systems, signalling and telecommunications work across the Cross River Rail Project.

The award of the RIS contract to the Unity Alliance comes after the contractual close for the Tunnel, Stations and Development PPP package of the project to be delivered by the Pulse Consortium which also includes CIMIC Group companies.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said CIMIC Group continues to provide essential infrastructure for the cities and local communities, providing important new services and helping to drive economic development.

“We’re proud to be playing a leading role in two key packages of Queensland’s largest public transport project,” he said.

CPB Contractors and UGL were supported by CIMIC Group’s engineering and technical services business, EIC Activities, in planning and digital engineering.

Early works on the project are already underway and major construction is due to be completed in 2024.
