The Maldon-Dombarton rail link project is on track

In response to recent media reports, the Federal Member for Cunningham, Sharon Bird said today that the Maldon- Dombarton rail link project was on track with pre- construction activities commencing this financial year. These will include:

• Preparation of detailed design work for civil, structural, geotechnical and track work necessary for the future construction of the project.

• Finalisation of a realistic construction timetable and cost estimate for the project.

Since the PM’s announcement in October, NSW Transport has been finalising their business case for the project including tender documents for engineering and environmental studies – work which they expected to complete within coming weeks.
