Acciona is awarded railway works worth €335 million in Australia

Coleman Rail, a subsidiary of Acciona Geotech, has been awarded, in a consortium with Lend Lease, the contract to remove three level crossings and build two new stations at Cheltenham and Mentone in south-east Melbourne (Australia).

Acciona is awarded railway works worth €335 million in Australia


The contract amounts to AU$536 million (around €335 million) and it is an extension of the Southern Program Alliance project to remove level crossings in the state of Victoria, which was awarded to the same consortium in January 2018 for the amount of AU$588 million (around €368 million) (see piece of news).

The new project includes more than 3 kilometres of walking and cycle paths that connect the stations, better lighting and accessibility, new parking spaces and a potential residential and commercial development.

The works will help to provide safer separation between railway traffic and vehicular traffic, reducing road congestion and improving safety, and they will also improve residents’ access to the area’s housing, shops and beach.
