Freight Rail, Intermodal, Major Projects & Infrastructure

Moorebank contract to Martinus

 

Martinus has been awarded the $140 million Moorebank Interstate Intermodal Terminal and rail access project by Qube – a nationally significant infrastructure development that will transform the way containerised freight moves through Sydney and along the east coast.

Martinus founder and chief executive officer Treaven Martinus said he and the team are thrilled to be delivering the facility, which forms part of the Moorebank Logistics Park, Australia’s largest intermodal project.

“For more than six months, we collaborated with our client, Qube, to refine the overall design and provided optimum solutions which ensure best for project outcomes. We have found that early involvement and collaboration are essential on major multi-disciplinary projects like this,” he said.

“Due to the scale and the complexity of the works, and all the logistical complexities that come with delivering large scale metro projects, we knew transparency with the client was essential and it strengthens the relationship – and for us that sets a solid foundation to deliver a project successfully.”

Interface management will play a critical part in the project management process which includes a range of specialised pavement works, earthworks, stormwater drainage, track works, signalling, communications, CCTV systems, HV service relocations and distribution, as well as other ancillary services.

Martinus chief operating officer Ryan Baden said that the team has provided a turn-key solution only made possible by the incredible in-house experts who were specifically selected to champion these works.

“This win shows me and the industry that we have an incredible team of people within Martinus who know the rail space inside and out. Our people are the reason why we are seen within the market as the experts within the complex railway infrastructure – because of their knowledge and solutions-focused thinking,” he said.

“Our next generation of industry leaders are embedded in this team and I can’t wait to watch them deliver this project.”

The Moorebank Logistics Park is being developed on a precinct covering over 240 hectares of land. The precinct is roughly the size of the Sydney CBD stretching from Circular Quay to Central Station and will include up to 850,000 square metres of warehousing. National Intermodal is a partner in the terminal development and funding the rail access infrastructure.
