The Western Australian Government has opened a six week request for tender process for the rail component of the $69 million METRONET Denny Avenue level crossing removal project.

Tasmanian Infrastructure Minister Michael Ferguson has announced the appointment of a new chair for TasRail, succeeding outgoing chair Samantha Hogg.

Stephen Cantwell, a current TasRail Director was selected for the position due to his experience with freight rail, heavy industry, mining and ports.

“With the delivery of tranches two and three of the Freight Rail Revitalisation Program (FRRP), a new shiploader and new customer projects all occurring in the next four years,  Cantwell’s operational and commercial know-how will be a great asset to TasRail,” Ferguson said.
