VINCI is awarded the Port Rail Transformation Project in Melbourne (Australia)28 September 2021
Seymour Whyte, a VINCI Construction subsidiary based in Australia, has been selected for a design and build rail and pavement upgrade contract of the Port of Melbourne, Australia’s largest container and general cargo port, handling more than one-third of the nation’s container trade.
This early contractor involvement (ECI) project, worth 125 million AUD (€77 million), will allow more containers moved by rail more efficiently, by-passing roads in inner Melbourne. In addition to increase existing terminal capacity, it includes a new rail terminal construction.
Works will take place from October 2021 to 2023.
Seymour Whyte will also implement environmental initiatives:
• a water treatment system to treat contaminated ground water
• all asphalt and concrete being recycled
• assessment of the reuse of approximately 33,000m3 of soil on-site to reduce the amount of new material used on-site
• demolition works anticipated to achieve an 80%+ recycle rate
