One of the world’s leading engineering, architecture and environmental consulting companies, GHD, is proud to have helped deliver two award-winning transportation projects in Australia.

At the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s (IPA) National Infrastructure Awards 2014, Victoria’s Regional Rail Link was named Project of the Year, while the Perth City Link in Western Australia received the Government Partnership Excellence Award.

“The Regional Rail Link has been judged the best Australian project of the past year, because it has been delivered extremely well in spite of significant complexities; because it represents a good partnership between the Commonwealth and state governments and the private sector; and because it will transform Victoria’s regional and metropolitan rail services,” says Brendan Lyon, IPA Chief Executive.

GHD provided technical services for the City to Maribyrnong section of the Regional Rail Link in an alliance with the Regional Rail Link Authority, Metro Trains Melbourne, V/Line, John Holland, Abigroup, Coleman Rail and AECOM.

Richard Warwick, GHD’s Project Director, says, “We are proud to have helped deliver this iconic project that addresses one of Victoria’s major infrastructure needs.”

The Perth City Link was also delivered by an alliance, comprising the Public Transport Authority, John Holland and GHD. According to IPA, through solid partnership and detailed engagement with stakeholders, the Perth City Link Rail Alliance was able to minimise construction impacts throughout the project and maintain its delivery and budget timeframes.

David Kinniburgh, GHD’s Global Market Leader – Transportation, comments, “From Victoria to Western Australia, these projects reflect GHD’s ability to work effectively in an alliance to deliver award-winning projects. It also demonstrates the depth and breadth of our capabilities in the rail sector. As a global transportation leader, we are proud to play a role in shaping the future of Australia’s cities.”
