Tunnel Network Services Pty Ltd (TNS), a 100% Egis subsidiary, has been selected by Transurban Queensland, operator of the go via network, to deliver incident response and routine maintenance services for its tunnel network in Brisbane.
Egis will provide these service to a network with a total length of around 24 km, including 15.5 km of tunnels. The network comprises Legacy Way, Go Between Bridge, AirportlinkM7, Inner City Bypass and Clem7. The services will commence progressively on the assets between 2017 and 2019.
TNS will deliver integrated services in line with Transurban Queensland’s network approach to operations and maintenance. Network-wide operations and maintenance will drive enhanced outcomes, achieve synergies and deliver high quality services to the tunnel network users through faster response times and a clear focus on safe lane availability.
This success fuels the positive trend of Egis in Australia, following the commencement of operations and maintenance of Legacy Way, the incident response services on the M2 / Lane Cove Tunnel in Sydney (both in 2015) and the pre-operations phase of WestConnex, Australia’s largest road infrastructure project, in 2016.
Egis strengthens its position as a leading tunnel services provider in Australia and worldwide, with 97.5 km of road tunnels under contract in 10 different countries.
