Announcing the preferred proponents for two new contracts are important steps to removing up to seven level crossings on the Armadale line.
As early works start on the Denny Avenue Level Crossing Removal project, Downer EDI has been chosen as the preferred proponent to build the major rail components.
This is the first of two construction packages, with the road component contract set to be awarded in early 2020 for major works to begin next year. Downer EDI and Decmil are the two shortlisted proponents for this road package of works.
Planning to remove another six level crossings along the Armadale Line is also progressing with Jacobs named as the preferred proponent to develop the business case.
The expanded project scope for the business case includes the crossings at Oats Street, Mint Street and Welshpool Road in one package, and Wharf Street, Hamilton Street and William Street in another.
