Rueil Malmaison, 27 September 2021

VINCI is awarded the Port Rail Transformation Project in Melbourne (Australia)

  • A design and build contract worth 125 million AUD (€77 million)

  • Meet the needs of a growing port and reduce truck movements

  • Key environmental construction initiatives

Seymour Whyte, a VINCI Construction subsidiary based in Australia, has been selected for a design and build rail and pavement upgrade contract of the Port of Melbourne, Australia’s largest container and general cargo port, handling more than one-third of the nation’s container trade.

This early contractor involvement (ECI) project, worth 125 million AUD (€77 million), will allow more containers moved by rail more efficiently, by-passing roads in inner Melbourne. In addition to increase existing terminal capacity, it includes a new rail terminal construction.

Works will take place from October 2021 to 2023.

Seymour Whyte will also implement environmental initiatives:

  • a water treatment system to treat contaminated ground water

  • all asphalt and concrete being recycled

  • assessment of the reuse of approximately 33 000m3 of soil on-site to reduce the amount of new material used on-site

  • demolition works anticipated to achieve an 80%+ recycle rate
