Abigroup wins Williams Landing project
15 August 2011
Abigroup has won a $65 million contract to design and construct a new premium railway station and associated infrastructure works for the Victorian State Government’s Department of Transport at Williams Landing on the outskirts of Melbourne.
As well as the new railway station the project also includes building the Palmers Road overpass, a pedestrian bridge over the Princess Freeway to Geelong, bus and taxi facilities, a carpark and rail track plus signalling realignment works.
Abigroup’s Southern Region General Manager Vin Vassallo said, “We’re delighted to have won this major project which will see us manage the total design and construction of the new railway station and associated works. It demonstrates the versatility of Abigroup’s diverse skills which will be delivered from our in house integrated capability.”
The project is located between the existing Aircraft and Hoppers Crossing stations on the Werribee line adjacent to the Princes Freeway and will serve the growing populations of Williams Landing and Point Cook.
