Victoria has launched an online portal to give suppliers a comprehensive overview of major projects in the state.
The Victorian Major Projects Pipeline went live today, July 24, and covers projects worth over $100 million. These include major rail projects including the Suburban Rail Loop, Metro Tunnel Project, Melbourne Airport Rail, the Level Crossing Removal program and others.
The projects range from those in the business case/planning phrase, to procurement, and delivery. Each project is categorised by region, sector, and procurement agency, with indication of cost, procurement start and delivery start. The projects can be organised in a list or timeline format.
Links to contact details and specific project information is available through the portal.
Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan hope that industry would use the portal to plan ahead.
“This portal will be an invaluable tool for industry going forward as we plan and prepare to deliver Victoria’s biggest ever infrastructure agenda.”
According to a statement from the Victorian government the portal will be updated quarterly with new project announcements and budgets.
Developed by the Office of Projects Victoria (OPV), which provides independent advice to improve project delivery and project benefits, the portal is in addition to other public information available on Victoria’s Big Build Website.
OPV CEO Kevin Doherty said the project was a collaborative effort.
“OPV has worked closely with key delivery agencies and the construction industry to develop this portal which will literally help build a bigger and better Victoria.”
