Cimic Group company UGL has won a A$110m contract in joint venture with fellow Australian builder Adco to build new railcar maintenance plant at Bellevue, Western Australia, for the State’s Public Transport Authority.

The project expands the existing manufacturing and maintenance site.

UGL will do civil works, track construction, signalling and trackside equipment installation, electrification works and connection to the site’s existing High Voltage Traction Power substation.

Cimic  Group executive chairman Juan Santamaria said: “The Bellevue facility embeds local railcar manufacturing, testing and maintenance in Western Australia. It is key to expanding the State’s rail network, and building local jobs and skills that will support future growth.”

Work started in the first quarter of 2024 and is expected to finish in mid-2026.
