TasRail has awarded a track maintenance contract incorporating project management, site management and supervision for a range of below rail infrastructure components.
Global Rail Australia has announced it was awarded the maintenance contract by the Tasmanian operator.
The contract, procured by TasRail’s IIP2 Programme Management team, is based on Category 1 Track Defects, and covers daily track patrolling, rectification and associated works including re-sleepering, re-railing, ballast cleaning and more.
The contractor’s Track Construction Division will be providing the service. As part of its social policy, Global Rail Australia said it plans support a local procurement programme, and engage where possible with SME suppliers to source both components and services locally.
Global Rail Australia will also provide a 24/7 emergency response service for all track construction works.
“This is an important success for our Track Construction Division and is testament to the hard work and support of the entire team,” CEO Ivan Holloway said.
“We look forward to maintaining a safe railway for TasRail and becoming a partner of choice through a collaborative, innovative and inclusive approach to project delivery.”
