Rail duplication and construction: New Lynn rail trench

The paper will focus on the successful delivery of the New Lynn Rail Trench. Among other benefits, the procurement model of Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) allowed the project team to achieve an optimised and constructable design, a parallel Consenting process, significant enabling works, and the inclusion of the third parties’ Enhanced Station scope at a later stage of the project. Value engineering techniques and “best for project” decision making principles were used throughout the project to achieve optimised rail gradients, rail infrastructure, station location and structural concept and construction methodology, enabling the programme and budget expectations to be exceeded.
