Shortlists for the Byford Rail Extension, Inner Armadale Level Crossing Project and the new Midland Station contracts have been released.

Contractors for these projects will now move to a competitive bid stage and will demonstrate how they will deliver the projects.

The Byford Alliance (Downer EDI Works, CPB Contractors, Aurecon Australasia, and CareyMC) and MetCONNX Alliance (Laing O’Rourke Australia Construction, Pritchard Francis Consulting, and Kellogg Brown & Root) will further develop their proposals for building the Byford Rail Extension.

This project will add eight kilometres to the Armadale Line from Armadale Station to a new station near Abernethy Road in Byford.

The Armadale Line Upgrade Alliance (Acciona/Coleman Rail, BMD Constructions, WSP Australia, and AECOM Australia) and Elevate Alliance (Downer EDI Works, CPB Contractors, GHD, Aurecon Australasia, and CareyMC) will progress plans for removing the dangerous level crossings at Mint Street, Oats Street and Welshpool Road on the inner Armadale Line via an elevated rail solution.

Lastly, he Transform Midland Alliance (Downer EDI Works, SMEC Australia) and Midland Junction Alliance (McConnell Dowell Constructors, Georgiou Group, Arcadis Australia, and BG&E) have been shortlisted to progress Midland’s new train station and associated infrastructure.

This will include the design and construction of a new three platform station, a 12-stand bus interchange and a 600 bay multi-storey carpark. Crews will also be required to demolish the existing station.

Contracts for all three of these projects are expected to be awarded later this year.
