Firm Construction awarded METRONET’s Bellevue Railcar Facility contract
FIRM Construction was awarded the $46 million contract to build the multi-functional assembly and maintenance facility, as well as a secondary high-voltage testing building. The new facility is part of the wider contract the McGowan Government signed to have Western Australia’s new METRONET railcars built locally.
The facilities will include a 180m-long building with a railcar assembly area, offices, workshops and storage areas, two overhead cranes able to lift 25 tonne each, and a heavy maintenance railroad with a crane capable of lifting 10 tonne.
