RCR, in joint venture with Opus International Consultants Limited, has entered into an Interim Project Alliance Agreement to carry out project services on the Auckland City Rail Link Project
RCR and Opus will operate in joint venture as the Systems Integration, Testing and Commissioning Alliance (“SITC”). Under the Interim Project Alliance Agreement, SITC will work in collaboration with City Rail Link, Auckland Transport and Kiwi Rail to develop an alliance proposal for the C7 Rail Project. If SITC’s proposal is accepted, SITC will enter into a Project Alliance Agreement with City Rail Link and Kiwi Rail for the construction alliance phase, with work expected to commence in June 2019.
The proposed C7 Rail Project includes the provision of track, track slab, overhead line, signalling, control systems, communications systems, trackside auxiliaries, control room fit-out and building works. Rail systems are to be installed, tested and commissioned from the existing operational railway to the east of Britomart, through Britomart Station, the new station and tunnels, and to the Western Line.
