Cross River Rail Greenfields Agreement

Brisbane`s demand for rail transport is expected to double by 2026 and triple by 2036. The project is trying to meet this demand pressure. If your application has been submitted in advance, you can check the status of your agreement by sending an email to the Commission`s contract team under agreementsprogressenquiry@fwc.gov.au. For current requests, the agreement or modification can be consulted via the following links. These edited documents are usually published within 3 working days of publication. The agreement excluded mechanical and electrical works and doubled the basic rates for tunnel construction and civil engineering works, for which EI is in the majority. Michael Wright, Managing Director of CIMIC Group, said: “Cimic Group is Australia`s leading rail infrastructure and service provider. Our end-to-end capability allows us to finance, design, build and maintain new tunnels and stations by combining the collective know-how of Pacific Partnerships, UGL and CPB Contractors. The project includes the provision of a 10.2-kilometre north-south rail link between Dutton Park and Bowen Hills through the exhibition site, including 5.9 kilometres of rail tunnels under the Brisbane River and the CBD, as well as four new tube stations on Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street. Juan Santamaria, Managing Director of CPB Contractors, said: “CpB Contractors has a strong track record of delivering high quality rail works across Australia.

Our team will bring this experience and ability to bring this important project to South East Queensland safely. UGL said: “This project underlines our position as a provider of mechanical, electrical and rail services in Australia. We strive, as long-term partners, to work with the local community to create ongoing employment and business opportunities. The Cross River Rail (CRR) project aims to provide an additional crossing via the Brisbane River. Once the Cross River Rail Project is operational, network capacity will be increased for more frequent rail services and better connection to other public transport, which will ease congestion pressure on our main roads, as more people opt for rail. The Rail, Integration and Systems Alliance will upgrade seven stations, install railway infrastructure in the new tunnel and integrate the project into the existing network. Gary O`Halloran, union secretary for plumbers in Queensland, said: “A rushed and opaque tendering and approval process has led to a shabby project agreement, well below comparable industry standards.” The CFMEU and other unions intervened to ask the Commission to reject the agreement on the grounds that its authorisation would “increase the potential for industrial dispute”. Please indicate your name, matter number and the name of the agreement. A team member should contact them within 2 business days. The Greenfields agreement calls for workers to pay $220,000 a year for the project for a 56-hour week, with annual wage increases of 3.5 percent. The current rail network is already approaching capacity and is limited by a single river crossing and only 4 urban stations, creating the bottleneck that limits the ability to operate more trains. Martin D`Uva, Managing Director of Pacific Partnerships, said: “Our integrated approach allows us to offer a seamless, lifelong solution that offers our customers better value for money. .
