Rail Projects Victoria – Challenges and Major Projects Update
October 16, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+10$30
Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) is responsible for delivering major rail projects in Victoria. Originally formed in 2015 as the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority responsible for delivering the Metro Tunnel Project, MMRA morphed into Rail Projects Victoria to better reflect a growing stable of rail projects being delivered by the team across the state.
RPV is responsible for the Metro Tunnel project, including its main Tunnels and Stations package, along with the Rail Infrastructure Alliance package and the Rail Systems Alliance package – both billion dollar contracts in their own right. Outside of Melbourne, RPV is delivering the joint Australian and Victorian government $1.75 billion Regional Rail Revival program which will upgrade every regional passenger train line in Victoria.
In addition to the above projects, RPV is working to develop the Melbourne Airport Rail project and the associated Western Rail Plan which will deliver long term benefits for Melbourne’s fast growing western suburbs and regional lines beyond.
RPV recognises the constraints on resources in the construction industry and is working with training and industry partners through its contracts to increase and upskill the workforce.
At this event, guests will hear from representatives working across these projects, providing an update on the progress, challenges and expected outcomes of the projects.
Peter Wilkinson, Director Delivery, Rail Projects Victoria
