Level Crossing Removal Project

In 2015, the Victorian State Government committed to eliminate 50 level crossings across metropolitan Melbourne by 2025 via the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP). 

Challenge

In 2018 an additional 25 level crossings were included in the program and the whole initiative now has scope to remove 75 level crossings, upgrade or construct more than 27 train stations, lay many kilometres of new track and make associated rail improvements. 

Since 2015, RPS has been assisting LXRP–part of the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority–to successfully plan and deliver work packages through transaction and commercial advisory, communications and community engagement services.

Solution

Following the approval of individual works packages, our advisors are supporting project delivery through embedded roles across a number of LXRP alliances. Our transaction advisory specialists are supporting effective project design, costing and scheduling, while our communications consultants have taken a lead role in assisting LXRP to define and quantify project success metrics.

RPS has performed and is continuing to perform a number of roles during the pre-contract award stage of numerous level crossing packages including:

  • Facilitation of the delivery strategy and transaction management
  • Contract negotiations and mobilisation of the delivery team for the client
  • Development of the delivery team strategy in conjunction with LXRP;
  • Submission tender management and assessment
  • Governance and approval processes throughout all project stages.

With a particular focus on stakeholder engagement innovation, our team has delivered training to alliance team members on how to manage stakeholder conversations for better project outcomes.

Another major role has been the development of key performance indicators (KPIs) and audit procedures that are not only helping to improve the project design, resourcing and delivery, but are also helping LXRP to embed and embrace innovative approaches to stakeholder engagement.
