There will be opportunities for private sector involvement in the Regional Rail Revival, with opportunities for a range of contractors, designers and suppliers.
Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) has been working with Transport for Victoria (TfV) to prepare a delivery strategy. It is anticipated that the main construction works for the delivery of Regional Rail Revival, will be delivered through a number of works packages using both Competitive Alliances, and Design & Construct (D&C) delivery models and will be subject to further due diligence and stakeholder feedback, including through any future market interactions.
For the Ballarat Line Upgrade, Lendlease Engineering and Coleman Rail are seeking expressions of interest from companies to deliver a range of work packages. For more information and to register see the ICN Gateway.
For the other projects that are part of Regional Rail Revival we are seeking interest from the market to:
- Develop an understanding of organisations that are interested in the Regional Rail Revival and have the requisite experience and capability and capacity to potentially deliver one or more Regional Rail Revival work packages.
- Establish a structured process for greater interaction, information sharing and ‘market testing’ of the proposed packaging and procurement approach, key commercial principles, processes and timing for the delivery of Regional Rail Revival.
- Provide an opportunity for respondents to this ROI to commence discussions between potential major contractors, rail systems and signalling providers and other relevant providers and advisers via the Industry Capability Network Gateway, noting that MMRA would not be facilitating any such discussions.
MMRA will consider respondents for participation in future market interactions based on each respondent’s capacity to meet either of the following two criteria:
