Event Details

Presented by Mark Miller - Project Director RIA/WN - Melbourne Metro Rail Authority

Melbourne’s $10.9B Metro Tunnel Project is a ground breaking project in more ways than one.

Within a few months, construction will commence in the CBD and tenders for two of the main work packages will close.

But there is much more to this project than the twin 9km tunnels and five new inner city stations. It’s driving a transformation of Melbourne’s public transport and enabling a major boost to the network capacity.

Mark will give an overview of the project and shine a light on some of the less known aspects of the project in relation to changes to the existing wider rail network.

Mark is the Project Director for one of the three main work packages – the Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA), the last one to go to the market.

Mark is a civil engineer with 31 years’ experience in project management of major infrastructure projects. For the last 15 years, Mark has been working in the Victorian rail industry (since the early days of privatization). Over that time he has worked in various roles with or for rail operator/maintainers, Tier 1 contractors, specialist contractors and the government project owner agencies mainly as a specialist rail consultant/contractor. Past project involvements include Cranbourne Pakenham Line Upgrade, Regional Rail Link, Westall Rail Upgrade, Metwest, Craigieburn Electrification and William Barrack Bridge.

He has seen the Victorian rail industry grow, evolve and mature over that time. Mark says the MTP is the most exciting and challenging project the industry has seen in more than 30 years.
