Melbourne Metro Tunnel

Eastern Plant Hire is currently working with the Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA), an alliance made up of CPB Contractors and, John Holland and AECOM. The alliance is set to complete $1 billion worth of infrastructure work for the $11 billion Metro Tunnel project. The RIA is tasked with completing a works package that includes building the tunnel entrances at Kensington and South Yarra, as well as a new platform at West Footscray. The works also include associated suburban rail upgrades that will maximise the benefits of the Metro Tunnel by providing more services for all passengers. This includes reconfiguration and realignment of existing tracks, and modification of existing rail infrastructure such as signaling and overhead line equipment to accommodate metro trains. Eastern Plant Hire have committed trucks and earthmoving equipment to the project. Thanks to our extensive network of subcontractor drivers we are able to keep up with the demands of the various RIA construction sites and help keep the work on time and on budget.
