CBE Group has recently won two sizable contracts on two substantial projects in Australia – The Melbourne Metro and West Gate Tunnel, located in the same city.
For the Melbourne Metro, twin tunnels of 9km each will be built across the city from west to south-east, allowing the creation of 5 new metro stations. The Cross Yara Partnership consortium,composed of Lendlease Engineering, John Holland, Bouygues Construction and Capella Capital, chose CBE Group for the production of a carousel and 60 moulds.
CBE Group will also provide a carousel and 40 moulds (for concrete rings with a 2.4m width and a 15m diameter) for the West Gate Tunnel, also in Melbourne. This other twin tunnel project, carried by a joint venture made between CPB Contractors and John Holland (CPBJH JV), is designed to relieve the car traffic on the West Gate bridge, by rerouting more than 9000 trucks out of the residential areas located on the western part of the city.
