CPB Contractors, as part of the NEWest Alliance, has been selected as preferred contractor to deliver the Yanchep Rail Extension and the Thornlie – Cockburn Link, as part of Perth’s METRONET program.
The alliance-style contract, delivered in partnership with Downer, is funded by the Western Australian and Australian governments. Revenue to CPB Contractors will be confirmed at contract execution.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “CIMIC Group continues to make a strong contribution to major projects across Australia through our diverse skills and wide geographic reach.
“Our construction company CPB Contractors has a long track record in WA in both infrastructure and resources and will work hard to leverage this experience on the METRONET project.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said: “CPB Contractors is proud to be playing this key role in the landmark METRONET project and to support the ongoing development of Perth as a vibrant, world-class city.
“As Australia’s leading provider of rail infrastructure, we’re committed to working closely with the WA Government and local communities to safely deliver this key component of Perth’s public transport system.”
The Yanchep Rail Extension extends the Joondalup line north from Butler to Yanchep and involves the construction of three new stations to support the area’s growing population.
The Thornlie – Cockburn Link connects the Mandurah and Armadale lines and involves the construction of two new stations to provide Perth’s first cross line connection and improved public transport services to the city’s southern suburbs.
CPB Contractors’ current major rail projects include Sydney Metro, Brisbane’s Cross River Rail, Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel, Regional Rail in New South Wales and Parramatta Light Rail in Sydney.
Work on this component of the METRONET project will commence this year and is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
