Laing O’Rourke leads the Novo consortium - comprising Laing O'Rourke, O’Donnell Griffin and Connell Wagner - which has been appointed by the New South Wales Government through RailCorp to create new infrastructure links within the state.
RailCorp chief executive Ron Mason said: “The partners have pooled their specialist resources to offer a whole of project capability including industry leading program management, rail system design and rail infrastructure delivery.
“These are all attributes which will help us to deliver the significant signalling, electrical and track works projects required to meet the demands created by growing rail patronage.”
Laing O’Rourke has already amassed considerable rail experience in delivering the St Pancras redevelopment scheme in London, Manchester Metrolink extension project and the Cannon Place redevelopment in the UK.
Construction is expected to start in late 2009.
