CIMIC Group companies preferred for Cross River Rail's Rail, Integration and Systems package

CIMIC Group companies CPB Contractors and UGL have been chosen by the Queensland Government as preferred contractors in an Alliance partnership to deliver the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) package of the Cross River Rail project.

The Alliance to deliver the RIS package comprises CPB Contractors and UGL, Jacobs and AECOM. Revenue to the CIMIC Group companies will be confirmed at contract execution.

CIMIC Group said: “Queensland’s landmark Cross River Rail project will reinforce CIMIC Group’s reputation as Australia’s leading rail provider.
