Overview of Works:
Inland Rail is 1,700 kilometre rail line between Melbourne in Victoria and Brisbane in Queensland. The 128km Gowrie to Kagaru section of new and upgraded rail track is the most geographically challenging and technically complex of the 13 projects comprising Inland Rail. It requires the construction of a 6.2km tunnel through the Toowoomba Range, numerous viaducts, bridges and crossing loops to build.
The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) appointed Regionerate Rail – a consortium comprising Plenary Group, Clough, GS Engineering and Construction, Webuild and Service Stream – as preferred bidder for the development of the Gowrie to Kagaru section. The contract is worth more than $5 billion for the design and construct elements.
AES was engaged to work with and across all of the engineering disciplines in whole of life solution development.
