Major contractors begin recruitment process

With the contract finalised for construction of Cross River Rail’s twin tunnels and four new underground stations, the major contractors are moving to mobilise their workforces.

Over the five-year construction phase of the project, Cross River Rail will generate thousands of jobs for Queenslanders. On behalf of the CPB, BAM, Ghella, UGL (CBGU) Design and Construction Joint Venture that will deliver Cross River Rail’s tunnels and stations, lead construction company CPB have now begun calling for expressions of interest in opportunities to work on the project.
