METRONET $1M tender open for cabling works

A $1 million tender to create a new cable route along the METRONET rail corridor between Meltham and Bayswater has been released.

The tender for cabling will include the relocation of railway communications cables, critical to the safe operation of the rail system.

Cables will be moved from the Midland Line Main Cable Route between Meltham Station and Ashfield Station as this is required to accommodate the Bayswater station upgrade.

The works will include a new main cable route, gas pipe cable route and new cable works.

Early works have also begun to enable the future construction of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line and Bayswater station upgrade.

The early works will include clearing the way for the construction of the future rail lines.

A contract announcement for the design and build contract for Bayswater station is also expected in the coming months.

Offering the installation and cable re-routing as a separate tender and starting work as early as possible will enable the winning tenderer for the design and construction of the Bayswater project to begin work quickly once the contract is awarded.
