DORIC and Brierty in $32m train deal

A WESTERN Australian consortium of DORIC constructions and Brierty Contractors has been awarded a $32 million contract to build three train stations as part of the New MetroRail Project. The contract is for the construction of the Cockburn Central, Kwinana and Wellard train stations, with DORIC carrying out all building works and Brierty the civil works. DORIC business development manager Keith Somers said the company was also set to build the Victoria Park railway station. “Work on the Victoria Park station is set to begin in April and construction of the three stations for the Mandurah rail line is due to start in June,” Mr Somers said. “We are thrilled to be part of such a high-calibre, state-of-the-art project that we believe will be of enormous benefit to the Perth community.” Planning and Infrastructure minister Alannah MacTiernan said the new stations would be transit interchanges, with car drop-off facilities, feeder bus services, pedestrian and bicycle access and parking for 1300 cars. “When completed, nine stations south of the Narrows Bridge will service more than 400,000 people along the Southern corridor – one of the fastest growing areas in Australia,” Ms MacTiernan said.
