In February 2019, the NSW Government awarded a contract to Momentum Trains to deliver the Regional Rail Project.
The total budget for the Project is $2.8 billion which includes a capital cost of $1.26 billion for the new fleet, the new maintenance facility in Dubbo, some minor network enabling works and project costs, as well as recurrent costs associated with maintenance services for the first 15 years.
Momentum Trains will design, build, finance and maintain the new regional rail fleet and the new purpose-built Mindyarra Maintenance Centre in Dubbo. NSW TrainLink will operate the new regional fleet with the first trains to be progressively introduced from 2023.
The new trains will improve safety, amenities, accessibility and reliability for customers who travel from Sydney to many regional centres in NSW, as well as Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Momentum Trains and its consortium partners (CAF, UGL and CPB Contractors) are committed to providing opportunities for regional NSW businesses, Aboriginal businesses, social enterprises and Australian disability enterprises to participate in the Regional Rail supply chain where possible.
