CIMIC's UGL awarded contract to construct Bellevue railcar maintenance facilities

UGL, a member of the CIMIC Group, has been awarded a contract, in joint venture with ADCO, to construct new railcar maintenance facilities at Bellevue, Western Australia (WA), for the State’s Public Transport Authority.

The project expands the existing Bellevue Railcar Manufacturing and Maintenance Facility and is expected to generate revenue of more than $110 million for UGL.

UGL will provide the project’s civil works, track construction, signalling and trackside equipment installation, electrification works and connection to the site’s existing High Voltage Traction Power substation.

CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria said: “The Bellevue facility embeds local railcar manufacturing, testing and maintenance in Western Australia. It is key to expanding the State’s rail network, and building local jobs and skills that will support future growth. We are very pleased to be working with the Public Transport Authority, our partner ADCO, and contributing UGL’s extensive transport infrastructure experience.”

UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “UGL is a leader in Australian transport and infrastructure. This project will bring together the best of our capabilities to ensure a quality and safe outcome for our client and for rail users across Perth.”

Works commenced in the first quarter of 2024 and are expected to finish in mid-2026.
