John Holland will start early site investigations and progress design works for Inland Rail’s Beveridge to Albury – Tranche 2 section in Victoria.

John Holland will deliver early commencement works and early delivery activities for the remaining eight Inland Rail sites in Victoria.

Known as the Beveridge to Albury – Tranche 2 section, John Holland will start site investigations and progress design work at BenallaEuroaWandongHume Freeway, Tallarook, Hume Freeway, Seymour, and three sites in Broadford on the existing North East rail line to allow for the safe passage of double-stacked freight trains.

Activities will include geotechnical investigations, ground water monitoring and additional surveys, as well as development of key management plans.

Inland Rail’s appointment of a construction partner for the remaining Victorian sites is on schedule for mid-2024, with major construction commencing in early-2025 and project completion in 2027.

Inland Rail Program Delivery Director for Beveridge to Albury section Ed Walker said these works at the remaining eight sites in Victoria were an important step forward for Australia’s largest infrastructure project.

“Inland Rail is getting on with delivering the project. “We’ve selected John Holland based on their experience delivering major civil and rail projects including Inland Rail Narrabri to North Star Phase 1 last year and the North East Rail Line Upgrade (NERL) in 2021. They are also responsible for delivering Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel Project and Sydney Metro,” says Inland Rail Program Delivery Director for Beveridge to Albury section Ed Walker.

“Over the coming weeks local communities will see the John Holland team on Tranche 2 sites carrying out early works for new bridges, track lowers and station modifications,” Inland Rail Program Delivery Director for Beveridge to Albury section Ed Walker.

“Inland Rail will look for every opportunity to involve local people and businesses in the project, to maximise the economic and social benefits for communities along the route,” Inland Rail Program Delivery Director for Beveridge to Albury section Ed Walker.

John Holland Executive General Manager Steve Butcher said this was an exciting project that would transform how goods were moved around Australia.

“We know that expanding the nation’s rail freight network creates safer and less congested roads and minimises carbon emissions,” says John Holland Executive General Manager Steve Butcher.

“Projects like these also create jobs and allows us to work with local businesses, leaving a positive legacy for regional communities,” says John Holland Executive General Manager Steve Butcher.

“This builds on our proud and longstanding partnership with ARTC to deliver transformative rail projects across the country, allowing us to leverage our skills and experience in providing end-to-end rail solutions,” says John Holland Executive General Manager Steve Butcher.
