Supporting more trains, more often across Victoria
CPB Contractors, as part of the Rail Systems Alliance (RSA), is working with the Victorian Government in support of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project, the state’s biggest ever investment in public transport.
CPB Contractors (as the principal contractor) and Bombardier Transportation are partners in the RSA, with the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) and Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM).
The $1.1 billion design and construct contract will generate revenue of approximately $312 million to CPB Contractors.
Construction as part of the RSA commenced in 2018 and is expected to be completed by 2026.
We are focused on delivering next-generation rail network solutions that safely and seamlessly interconnect with existing infrastructure to create a high capacity, integrated rail system.
CPB Contractors will:
- Deliver all site construction services, including civil works; and
- Lead the design, supply, installation, testing, integration and commissioning activities for train and power control systems, operational control systems, and conventional and high capacity signalling on the new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line.
The RSA will provide systems across almost 91km of existing operational rail corridor and through the new 9km twin tunnels and work with Metro Tunnel’s ‘Tunnel & Stations’ Public Private Partnership to deliver an integrated rail system.
It will also deliver safety and efficiency improvements at the five new underground Metro Tunnel stations through the installation of platform screen doors, the application of which will be a first for Melbourne.
CPB Contractors acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional and continuing custodians of the lands on which the Metro Tunnel project will be delivered.
