Tender Details

Enabling works for the Regional Rail project includes the scope of works required to support the implementation of the new fleet which are outside the main contract delivery obligations.  This enabling works scope represents a wide variety of works which will perform in combination with the main contract to support successful delivery of the Regional Rail Project.

Enabling works are shaped by the blending of existing and future operations as the new fleet is transitioned into operational use and the old fleet is retired.  The enabling works scope will be determined firstly by the operating and maintenance locations requiring changes and second, the augmentation required to the current network.
