RTSA – Qld Chapter Event – PPPs vs D&Cs – A Case Study: Inland Rail

August 12, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+10


PPPs vs D&Cs – A Case Study: Inland Rail

At this panel event, jointly hosted by RTSA, EA’s Civil College and EA’s College of Leadership and Management , experts will discuss the Inland Rail Project and the learnings from its delivery model using both contract delivery methods.

The Inland Rail project is a 1,700km rail connection from Melbourne to Brisbane, including brownfield and greenfield sections. It consists of thirteen different projects, five of which are in QLD, two of which are to be delivered using a D&C contract method and three to be delivered as a combined PPP.

This panel event will interview two ARTC leaders, Rob McNamara the Project Director of the North Star to Border and Border to Gowrie Projects to be delivered as D&C’s and Simon Fraser the Gowrie to Kagaru PPP Project Transaction Manager. The panel will also include Queensland Major Contracts Association (QMCA) CEO, Jon Davies, to share his knowledge on why PPPs and D&Cs suit different projects and the benefits and challenges of each from the contractor point of view.

With significant tunnels, flood plains, viaducts, earthworks and a whopping total of $9.3b federally committed to develop and build Inland Rail, the future backbone of the national freight network, this is an event not to be missed!
