Bouygues to help build Australian rail underpass

6 February 2013 0 Comments

In partnership with the Australian group Macmahon, Bouygues Travaux Publics was awarded a A$260m alliance contract in Australia for the design and construction of a railway underpass and 3.2km of new track in western Sydney.

Works are starting immediately and construction will end in late 2015, with an estimated workforce of 400 people.

The alliance will also remove contaminated material in certain parts of the one hundred year old railway site and preserve heritage buildings.

Bouygues Construction is also currently upgrading a highway in Queensland. The Group has already completed other large projects in this country, most notably a Sydney rail tunnel airport link in the late 1990s and, more recently, a road traffic bridge in Brisbane.
