UGL wins rail contracts worth $180 million

UGL has won contracts worth $180 million to manufacture four railway locomotives and to operate and maintain Adelaide’s north-south tram system.

The company, part of the CIMIC Group, will make four locomotives in Newcastle over a period of 18 months for Qube logistics.

In a separate contract as part of a consortium, UGL will maintain Adelaide’s growing tram network for a period of eight years.

The network was recently extended through the city towards the eastern and northern suburbs, and subsequently privatised.

The consortium includes Transit Systems and John Holland.

UGL’s managing director Jason Spears said: “These contracts extend our light rail capability alongside our Adelaide heavy rail presence and commence our relationship with Qube Logistics.

“UGL has a strong reputation for quality and safety and we look forward to exhibiting that through these manufacturing, maintenance and operations contracts.”

Qube has recently won contracts with Shell and Bluescope steel.
