refreshing to see two WA companies been given an opportunity over a stingy conglomerate.
no announcement today, ive heard it's will be a sunday announcement for hype (like when they announced the consortium's earlier in the year)

also not sure if metroconnex, ive heard PTA didnt want another Salini (acciona had huge issues in sydney with light rail) and georgiou had next to 0 rail experience. strange that gergiou/coleman are trying for alliances on bayswater against each other and leightons have remained quiet on tendering on other projects

will find out the truth soon, guess its what side of the alliances your talking to

my sources have said friday based on morrisons trump card today effectively giving mcgowan a two day bonanza.

CPB are well aware they arent successful. were talking a substantial difference in costs too.

CPB arent too happy either they have nothing lined up in WA beyond july 2020

If thats the case CPB would surely be sharpening their pencils for the tenders on the Mitchell Freeway extension, Tonkin Gap, BORR etc works starting up in 2020/2021

the only job that will actually start next year is tonkin gap and thats the mid of next year thanks to morrisons funding splunge yesterday. there will be a substantial amount of redundancies. of course they could get reemployed later but there will be a good few months of quiet as alll the other projects are resourced. mitchell freeway and bunbury ring road early 2021.

there is also other competitors in the market that want to get in too. not to mention the current northlink 3 issues that is causing grief on both sides.

I heard that CPB didn't even make the short list for Tonkin Gap, it is down to Laing O'Rourke and Georgiou/BMD.

they mustve seriously pissed off the government and main roads. think their claim over northlink 3 during the metronet 2nd tender phase also hurt them

Yeah, Metronet don't have a thing on their latest news, no news has announced it, neither of the companies have announced it and the WA Media Statements page is down.

Whats the deal with the MetroNet anyways? The government is always going on and on about urban sprawl being bad, but then a significant amount of the MetroNet works/proposals are on tracks and stations on the fringes...

Interesting if that is true.

International Railway Journal

To combat a swelling population, Perth is pursuing the construction of four new suburban rail lines, which will add 72km to the network. Mark Carter reviews progress so far.

WITH the population of Perth forecast to grow from the current 2.35 million to 3 million by 2050, the state government of Western Australia (WA) has realised the need for an ambitious programme to improve the scale and reach of the suburban rail network, branded Metronet".......

https://www.railjournal.com/in_depth...rail-expansion

..... While Sydney and Melbourne grapple with projects to just lift the capacity of their existing networks, Perth has been busy extending the reach of its network to bring affordable public transport to its outer suburbs, and perhaps in the case of light rail, its inner suburbs.

If you look at some graphs from Charting Transport it's shocking how growth since the end of the mining boom has shifted to the fringes of the city away from public transport. If you view the population increase in these fringe areas as already baked in, then you can make an argument for extending the rail and creating TODs out there vs the alternative (huge new suburbs that are entirely car dependent). All that said, I want the Morley tunnel and LRT as much as anyone.

It should be noted that Perth's sparse network means that large parts of the inner and middle suburbs fall into the same category as urban fringe areas. Any population growth in suburbs like Yokine, Floreat, Riverton, Belmont, and even central South Perth falls into the 3-4 km or greater categories, and areas like City Beach, Melville, Canning Vale and everywhere further south, and the entire north/north-east corridor from Dianella all fall into the +5 km from Transit stations category. With such huge swathes of the city distant from transit it's inevitable that the bulk of growth will occur there even if it's not strictly "on the fringe" (though obviously a lot of development is urban fringe greenfields sites anyway).

Metronet stage 1 should bring large sections of Perth out of the +5 km category and make Perth more comparable to the other city's growth patterns, just the FAL alone will bring most of the Eastern suburbs under 5 km. And of course the comparison's aren't perfect either as living +5 km from Murdoch station with a decent bus service is a lot different to living +5 km from the nearest station in Brisbane or Melbourne.

wasnt a heist, metroconnex didn't have a lot of WA experience and CPB went poaching the best for their team

NEwest was the favourite from day 1
