The Bayswater Level Crossing Removal Project (LCRP) is an Alliance between Laing O’Rourke, Fulton Hogan, AECOM, the Level Crossing Removal Authority, VicRoads, Public Transport Victoria, and Metro Trains Melbourne working to remove two rail level crossings in Bayswater, Victoria. The project includes:

  • Lowering the rail line and raising the road at Mountain Highway and Scoresby Road
  • Rebuilding Bayswater Train Station and creating a new forecourt and public area
  • Reconstructing the bus interchange and train station car park
  • Constructing a grade-separated shared-use path
  • Modifying the streetscape along Mountain Highway

Planned for completion in 2017 at a cost of $177 million, the Bayswater LCRP will be the first project completed under the Level Crossing Removal Program certified with an IS and Green Star As Built rating.

The Alliance’s commitment to sustainability and embracing the rating tools have helped create sustainable outcomes across all aspects of the project and transform industry practices. By creating a culture of sustainability and exploring every best-practice initiative in the tools, the project has found sustainable solutions that provide direct environmental, social, and economic benefits to the project and local community.

All projects that were certified through the IS rating scheme over the past year were eligible for the award. The 2016 judging panel identified three finalists in this category, the other two finalists were NorthConnex and Sydney Metro Northwest Tunnel and Stations Civils Project. The remaining nominees were:

Built at the Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock West, the Melbourne International RoRo Automotive Terminal (MIRRAT) is at the forefront of parent company Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics’ (WWL) zero emissions vision. 

Designed and constructed by CPB Contractors, Arcadis, Worley Parsons and PLUS Architecture, MIRRAT is the first WWL facility in the world to be awarded a sustainability rating. The project was informed by WWL’s bold ‘Castor Green Terminal’ concept, which aims to build a facility powered entirely from renewable energy by 2020 and made exclusively from recycled materials.

Included as a best practice example in the UN Global Compact, MIRRAT was constructed using around 260,000 tonnes of recycled concrete, brick and glass. It features a solar panel array capable of generating 118,500 kWh of electricity annually, 100,000 litres of rainwater storage, and extensive LED lighting. During construction site amenities were powered by a Remote Area Power System – an Australian first – saving 10,000 litres of diesel.

The 2016 Judges were particularly impressed to see consolidation and learnings from across the group, international best practice and local pilots.

The 2016 judging panel identified three finalists in this category, the other two finalists were Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project and Bayswater Alliance, Level Crossings Removal Project. The remaining nominees were:

  • Ararat Wind Farm
  • NorthConnex
  • Melbourne International RoRo Automotive Terminal
