Cross River Rail releases procurement and delivery strategy
The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority has announced its procurement and delivery strategy for the Queensland Government funded AU$5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.
Core components of the Cross River Rail project will be delivered through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) and an Alliance.
Registrations for the Tunnel, Stations and Development PPP Expression of Interest (EOI) opened on 5 September 2017, while registrations for the Rail, Integration and Systems Alliance EOI opened on 19 September.
The PPP package includes underground elements of the project, over station development at Albert Street, and brownfield rail surface works – which incorporates the development of the tunnel, stations, access and safety systems, dive structures, work installations, asset and facility maintenance, commercial development, and debt and equity financing.
The scope of the Alliance package EOI covers delivery of rail systems and surface works as well as integration of the project into the Queensland Rail network.
The Cross River Rail will connect the northern and southern rail networks, easing congestion and improving reliability in the Brisbane CBD and adding four new high-capacity inner city stations.
The link will run 10.2 km from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, with 5.9 km of the tunnel situated beneath the Brisbane River and CBD.
