Simon Corbell is having a busy day and is putting out the call for experts to help build Capital Metro:
“The Capital Metro Agency will be seeking experts in transport planning, engineering design and light rail operations to further develop the details of the project so that it can move towards the procurement phase in 2015,” Mr Corbell said.
“The work of the consultants will cover engineering design, operations and other technical aspects including environmental assessment, urban design, maintenance and construction planning.
“The Capital Metro Agency is seeking consultants with significant experience on similar light rail projects elsewhere in Australia across this broad scope of work.
“It is expected that Australia’s top tier engineering and planning consultancies will respond, with the preferred respondent starting work on these critical elements of the project as early as February next year.
