CPB Contractors, as part of the NEWest Alliance, has reached contractual close to deliver the Yanchep Rail Extension and the Thornlie to Cockburn Link components of Perth’s METRONET.
The alliance-style contract, delivered in partnership with Downer, will generate revenue of approximately $423 million to CPB Contractors. The project is funded by the Western Australian and Australian governments.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “Our construction company CPB Contractors has a strong and experienced team in Western Australia, which will ensure the safe and efficient delivery of the METRONET program.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said: “CPB Contractors looks forward to working closely with the West Australian Government to safely deliver this landmark public transport project for the people of Perth.”
The Yanchep Rail Extension (YRE) 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 to Cockburn Link (TCL) 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.
Full passenger services will commence on YRE in mid-2022 and TCL in mid-2023.
