CIMIC Group’s UGL, as part of an alliance, has reached contract award with Rail Projects Victoria for the Gippsland Line Upgrade, which will improve rail services for Victoria’s Gippsland line.
The project, which is expected to commence in the coming weeks, will deliver revenue to UGL of approximately $124 million.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “UGL has a long history of providing rail services in Victoria. We are pleased to be working closely with Rail Projects Victoria to deliver the upgrade safely and efficiently, benefitting the growing communities of Gippsland.”
UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “UGL is Australia’s leading rail and infrastructure service provider with operations across the country. We look forward to improving services and safety for the people of the Gippsland region and Victoria.”
The Gippsland Line Upgrade includes second platforms, station improvements, tracks, signalling and level crossing upgrades. UGL was selected as preferred tenderer for the project in December 2020.
The project is expected to begin in early 2021 and be completed by the end of 2022.
