Bridges contract awarded for Butler extension

The State Government has awarded the second major contract for the Butler Extension Project to extend the Joondalup Line 7.5km through the rapidly-expanding northern suburbs.

The $9.8million contract for the construction of three bridges was awarded to a joint venture between Bocol Constructions and R J Vincent and Co.

Transport Minister Troy Buswell said the contract included three concrete road-over-rail bridges; the bridge abutments and associated road works; lighting; the relocation of underground services; and landscaping and fencing.

“The first bridge will be built at Butler Boulevard near the site for Butler Station, and the other bridges at Landbeach Boulevard and Benenden Avenue, will be built north of the temporary roads constructed as part of the project’s preparatory works,” Mr Buswell said.

“The Butler extension will provide a valuable transport service to the rapidly-growing northern communities, and will also ease pressure on the Mitchell Freeway and major road corridors.

“More than 2,000 passengers are expected to board at the new Butler Station each week day.”

Work on the bridges is expected to start in June 2011.

The first major contract for the Butler extension, for preparation of four kilometres of rail corridor, was awarded to R J Vincent and Co in December 2010.
