The Regional Rail Link Project, located in the Victoria state, has been inaugurated this year.
For this significant project, RECO Australia provided several Reinforced Earth® structures. On the West Werribee Junction section, RECo Australia was required to design and supply two Reinforced Earth® retaining walls and six flyover walls for a total surface of 5,517 m².
The global project is composed of 90 km of new tracks, five new and upgraded railway stations, 40 bridges, 13 grade separations, and thousands of kilometres of wiring and conduits. Due to the project’s size and complexity, the RRL Project was divided into six construction packages.
The RRL was awarded in 2014 the best Australian project of the year at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s (IPA) National Infrastructure Awards. In 2015, it has been recognized as the winner of the Australian Construction Achievement Award 2015 by the Australian Constructors Association (ACA) and Engineers Australia (EA)
