Upgrade contracts awarded for WA grain receival sites

West Australian grain handler CBH Group is pressing on with upgrades to six of its receival sites, announcing thee contractors to deliver the work on April 18.

CBH named contractors for upgrades which will add 700,000 tonnes of new permanent storage to its WA grain handling network, which consists of major and minor receival sites all around the state’s grain railways.

WCP Civil will deliver upgrades at Broomehill (77,400 tonnes), Lake Grace (84,000 tonnes) and Gairdner (46,800 tonnes). Georgiou Group will deliver a 152,000-tonne upgrade at Cranbrook. WBHO Infrastructure will deliver a 236,000-tonne upgrade at McLevie, and a 122,000-tonne upgrade at Dowerin West.

“The awarding of these contracts continues to maintain the pace that CBH established in 2018 to continually enhance the network,” CBH general manager for project delivery Andrew Porter said.

“We have now finalised contracts for over two-thirds of our approved expansion projects pipeline for this year, and in coming weeks we expect to award contracts for the remainder of the projects.”

CBH’s network upgrade program is budgeted for more than $150 million in 2019.
