Independent assurance services firm Arcadis has won the Independent Reviewer and Environmental Auditor (IREA) Services contract for the $5.5 billion West Gate Tunnel project in Melbourne.
The project is a proposed tunnel and elevated motorway connecting the West Gate Freeway with the Port of Melbourne, CityLink and the city CBD. It will also provide an alternative Yarra River crossing to the West Gate Bridge.
Arcadis will provide independent review and environmental auditing services during the Preferred Respondent as well as the Design and Construction phases. The company is the project lead and will deliver it in collaboration with WSP and APP.
“The West Gate Tunnel is a truly city-shaping project that will create a critical piece of linking infrastructure, providing commuters with faster and safer travel routes and removing thousands of trucks from residential streets,” said Malcolm McDowall, Managing Director Environment and Project Services at Arcadis Australia Pacific.
“We are in the business of Australia’s future cities and projects like this define the success and resilience of our nation’s future. We are very proud to bring our deep Australian experience to the West Gate Tunnel Project.”
