Coleman Rail has secured another major project in Western Australia after being awarded a $50 million contract to build a rail freight facility in Kenwick.

It comes three months after the ACCIONA subsidiary secured the construction works for the $253 million Bayswater train station upgrade, beating out a rival bid from a consortium comprising Georgiou Group and Lendlease.

The Public Transport Authority of WA has tasked Coleman with replacing the existing rail freight facility at Bellevue.

The new facility at Kenwick will free up the Bellevue site for the development of a railcar depot, where global manufacturer Alstom will build and maintain a fleet of rail cars under a $1.25 billion state government project.

The Kenwick facility will include a rail welding area, rail stowage for grinding and track machines, administration buildings, material storage facilities, and connections to the existing rail freight network.

It will be built on a 17 hectare site adjacent to the rail line between Bickley Road and Intermodal Place.

Coleman Rail beat out three other submissions for the works, according to tenders.wa.gov.au.

Brookfield subsidiary Arc Infrastructure will continue to operate the facility after it moves from Bellevue to Kenwick.
