Newport Train Stabling Yards $36m


Project Summary…

AREA3 provided Project Engineer services working with Metro Trains Melbourne on the Newport Stabling Yard Project.

Our team played a key management role in the delivery of a Tram and Train maintenance training facility, 6 stabling roads and the construction of an Amenities Building for the train drivers.

AREA3 joined the project at the commencement of Tender Evaluation stage and was involved in the review and assessment of tenders, tender interviews and engaging the Main Contractor.

During the life of the project we were responsible for the administration of the main works contract on a daily basis including the assessment, processing and monitoring of variations, the assessment of Contractor project claims, raising contract instructions and monitoring the construction program.

Our role also included the planning and management of Occupations of the Williamstown and Werribee main lines. The tight time constraints to complete the works meant that the works had to be planned and monitored by the hour during stages of the program.

Planning of the Occupation works entailed close liaison with the Main Contractor to co-ordinate the nature and program of the works, securing Metro infrastructure resources and liaison with the various Stakeholders.
