CIMIC Group’s construction company CPB Contractors has won a contract from GoldLinQ Pty Ltd to design and build the $200m Stage 2 of the Gold Coast light rail project in Australia.


Under the contract, CPB Contractors will construct a 7.3km northern extension of the Gold Coast light rail from Gold Coast University Hospital to Helensvale, to connect Stage 1 with the main Brisbane to Gold Coast rail line.

CIMIC Group’s executive chairman and CEO Marcelino Fernández Verdes said: “The Queensland government’s commitment to delivering state‐of‐the‐art public transport has provided us with the opportunity to design and construct this significant light rail infrastructure.

“Our capability and major project experience in the rail sector provide the certainty of delivery that is necessary for the expansion of the transport network in one of the fastest growing cities in Australia.”

CPB Contractors’ managing director Román Garrido said: “We continue to work with GoldLinQ to achieve innovative design and cost‐effective construction solutions for this project, to the benefit of the people of Queensland.

“In addition, our team will engage with local workers and businesses to develop increased job and work opportunities as the project progresses.”

Construction work on the project is set to start in April 2016 and will be complete in late 2017.
