Strong response’ to Cross River Rail PPP

There has been “very strong” interest in the PPP element of the Cross River Rail project in Brisbane.

The deadline for expressions of interest closed in September for the Tunnel, Stations and Development (TSD) PPP package, and a spokesperson for the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority has confirmed that there has been a wide range of interest in the scheme.

“The response to the project work packages has been very strong,” the spokesperson said. “While the authority is not able to provide details on specific companies, there has been interest shown by international contractors as well as local Queensland companies, which is very pleasing.”

Cross River Rail comprises two major packages of work, the TSD PPP and a Rail, Integration and Systems Alliance (RIS) contract.
