Now that the route for Melbourne Airport Rail has been announced, our market engagement can progress to the next stage to gain feedback from the industry and finalise the best procurement approach.
As the first stage of market engagement, registrations of interest were sought from suitably experienced and qualified organisations interested in tendering for elements of Melbourne Airport Rail including design, engineering, construction and finance.
Responses can continue to be submitted to the ROI in accordance with the information outlined in the ROI Response Schedule (PDF, 353.6 KB). No other information is to be submitted. Responses to this ROI are to be submitted by email to ARL-ROI@railprojects.vic.gov.au.
To date more than 100 local and global organisations have registered their interest in this nationally significant project. Each of those who submitted an ROI will now be contacted and provided with more detailed information about the project including an overview of the scope for our proposed packaging solution and the indicative procurement approach. We will also be seeking feedback from respondents on a number of matters relating to packaging and procurement.
ICN Gateway company registration
Local suppliers and contractors that would not be part of a consortia directly tendering for Melbourne Airport Rail can continue to register their details on the ICN Gateway and these details can then be passed on to potential tendering organisations after the procurement process for Melbourne Airport Rail has commenced.
