Market engagement

Melbourne Airport Rail will connect the airport to the rail network for the first time. The project will be procured and delivered through a number of works packages to integrate the new line into the rail network.

Expression of Interest - Sunshine/Albion Package

Alongside ongoing planning work and consultation for Melbourne Airport Rail, we’re going out to market with the first of several works packages.

An Expressions of Interest (EOI) process is now underway for the Sunshine/Albion Package. This works package comprises of works around the Sunshine and Albion area which will almost double the size of Sunshine Station, build a section of elevated rail between Sunshine and the Albion-Jacana corridor, and deliver improvements around Albion Station.

The Sunshine / Albion Package is the first of several works packages to go out to market through a multi-staged procurement process.

To participate in the procurement process, interested parties must be registered and meet the pre-qualification requirements specified as part of the Advance Tender Notice which was released on 14 April 2021. Both the pre-qualification requirements and the Invitation for Expressions of Interest document (Volume 1A) are available on the Buying for Victoria website.

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.
