AECOM Technology Corporation is part of a consortium that has been awarded a $555 million contract for a package of work on Australia's Regional Rail Link in the state of Victoria.

AECOM’s contribution in delivering the contract is expected to generate revenue of $19.5 million.

Under the contract from Victoria’s Department of Transport, AECOM will provide rail, structural, electrical, signaling and civil infrastructure design, as well as geotechnical, waterway modeling and environmental management services for the project, which runs from Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station to the Maribyrnong River, until February 2015.

“We are excited to play a key role in an effort that will remove major bottlenecks in Victoria’s rail network by untangling metropolitan and regional tracks,” said John Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer.

Planning and design work will begin immediately and major construction for the project is scheduled for completion during February 2015. The overall Regional Rail Link is expected to be complete in early 2016. AECOM’s work on the project is expected to conclude during February 2015.
