Our unique combination of technical, operational and commercial capabilities led us to be the transaction managers for the European Train Control System Level 2, as part of the $5.4B Cross River Rail Project.

As the transaction managers, Indec provided the following services:

  • Transaction management
  • Procurement
  • Commercial framework creation
  • Contract and commercial management
  • Payment regimes
  • Through-life-support modelling
  • Risk assessment
  • Owner’s estimate development, budget, governance and approvals

Challenges during project delivery included

  • The impact of the system on the southeast Queensland rail network
  • The integration of the activities with the other Cross River Rail project elements, which are being delivered through a public-private partnership and alliance contracting models
  • The adoption of whole-of-life systems approach which required immediate project deliverables, timeframes and resources to be balanced with the longer-term needs of the rail network operator

Key highlights of the successful project delivery included:

  • A robust commercial framework that supported effective organisational change management programme
  • Systems integration and alignment for the implementation of highly complex systems to achieve automatic train operation

The Queensland Government appointed their preferred bidder in April 2019.
