Balfour Beatty wins contracts for rail works in Australia

Balfour Beatty has scored a new contract to work on a rail network in Melbourne, Australia.

Balfour Beatty has scored a new contract to work on a rail network in Melbourne, Australia.

As part of the £76.6m agreement with Victoria's Road Authority, the infrastructure group will remove a pivotal rail road level crossing in Melbourne.

Balfour Beatty will lower the existing rail line beneath the road in order to reduce congestion, improve safety and cut journey times.

A new station with transport interchange and associated precinct areas will also be constructed.

"This is an excellent demonstration of the infrastructure expertise Balfour Beatty as a whole can bring to a complex project, utilising skills gathered from across our global business," said Chief Executive Andrew McNaughton.

Work begins this month and will be completed by the end of 2014.
