Melbourne’s Port and Freight Potential
While Victoria holds the title as the nation’s largest exporter of agricultural commodities, it is still difficult to move freight. Improving transport infrastructure across the state will in turn increase export capabilities and allow for the sustainable development of an industry.

Monash and Princes Freeways upgrade
Following the completion of Stage 1’s construction, the Monash Freeway Upgrade is beginning the preliminary work for Stage 2. Easing the traffic congestion in Melbourne’s South East, the upgrade will allow for an additional 2,000 vehicles to be on road during peak travel times.
Victoria’s Biggest Road and Tunnel Project
Infrastructure Project Assurance Using Integrated QS Teams
In August 2018, Donald Cant Watts Corke (Infrastructure) entered into a contract with the newly formed Major Road Projects Authority (MRPA) in Victoria, providing state-side cost estimating services for the Suburban Roads Upgrade Project - Northern and South Eastern Packages.
Two key factors contributed to the successful award and subsequent delivery of the services:
In the experience of DCWC, the Total Outturn Cost (TOC) for a major transport-related infrastructure project could be under estimated by 15% to 20% if these two factors are not taken into consideration. This proved to be the case in a recent review of an integrated light rail and road modification project. In applying recent experience with similar projects both in scope and environment, the Client was given greater assurance in the TOC with written advice and detailed justification to increase the previously advised figure by approximately $130 million.
With the successful outcome of the SRUP Northern and South Eastern Packages, coupled with the extensive knowledge of local procurement and site conditions by both Agonis Group and DCWC we are now of the firm belief that Integrated Quantity Surveying teams with specialist engineering skills is the solution to providing assurance of the TOC on major infrastructure projects.
Emerging Technologies for Transport Infrastructure
Is technology the answer to better transport solutions across Victoria?

Melbourne Metro Early Works
John Holland was engaged as the Managing Contractor on the Metro Tunnel Early Works (MTEW) project, the first of four packages required to deliver Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel on behalf of our client Rail Projects Victoria (RPV). The Metro Tunnel will transform the lives of Victorians, creating five new stations to allow an extra 39,000 people to travel by rail during peak times – a necessary expansion as Melbourne’s population grows.
The team oversaw and orchestrated the delivery of the diverse and complex MTEW project, spanning every aspect of project management and engaging over 3000 workers, 210 contractors and major Utility Service Providers across more than 30 working environments. The Project was powered by people in all areas from project delivery, design and engineering, commercial and contracts, community and stakeholder engagement, OH&S, quality and completion, environment, sustainability, and traffic management.
The scope of work required us to cut through the complexity of this project in a united way, creating a positive and caring culture that impacts each person involved in MTEW, from the leadership team through to the contractors and USPs.

How AI is Changing the Art & Science of Transportation Project Planning
For 50 years, project planning for transportation projects has been based on the largely unchanged approach known as Critical Path Method, or CPM. The reality is that the track record for this technique has remained mediocre at best. With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), we now have at our fingertips a much more accurate means of building project schedules. This presentation discusses:
This major step-change is a game changer for the art and science of project planning for our sector.

Update on Transurban’s Victorian Projects
Transurban has connected communities since 1996. From building CityLink over 20 years ago to delivering projects such as CityLink Tulla Widening, the Monash Freeway Upgrade and the new West Gate Tunnel Project, our roads make travel safer, faster and smarter.
As Melbourne continues to grow, Transurban is going beyond traditional engineering to invent and incorporate new technologies and smarter solutions that respond to our customers’ needs and get people where they need to go.
David Clements, Program Director – Major Projects Victoria, Transurban
Using An ‘Active Client’ Model to Assure the Safe Delivery of The Major Transport Infrastructure Program
The Major Transport Infrastructure Program (MTIP) is one of the most ambitious and complex infrastructure programs in Victoria’s history. It currently includes 41 major road and rail projects with an estimated value of $38 billion and provides employment opportunities from more than 12,000 personnel. Major projects currently being delivered include the Metro Tunnel, Level Crossing Removals, Regional Rail Revival, West Gate Tunnel, North East Link and several significant Major Road upgrades.
While the direct responsibility for the management of health and safety for construction, operations and maintenance on the MTIP ultimately rests with the construction participants and consortiums who manage the worksite, the Coordinator-General and senior leaders from each of the Administrative Offices (AOs) consider the safety of all who may be involved with or affected by the delivery of the MTIP to be paramount.
As such, an ‘active client’ safety management model has been applied. This model places each AO in a position of actively overseeing and supporting the safety management of these significant projects, without looking to ‘direct’ how expert contractors should perform those works.
This presentation will provide an insight into the key elements that form part of the MTIP Active Client Safety Management Model.

Streamlining Victorian Roads
The Streamlining Hoddle Street project is a unique project which seeks to make some of our most important transport infrastructure in Melbourne work better. The project involves creating Victoria’s first Continuous Flow Intersection aimed at not only improving traffic flow along Hoddle Street, but also tram performance, bus travel times and cycling and pedestrian connectivity near Melbourne’s famed sporting precinct. The presentation will focus on the objectives of this unique project along with the challenges encountered in designing and building it.
