Kingsgrove to Revesby quadruplication project: driving out costs from rail projects

The Kingsgrove to Revesby Quadruplication (K2RQ), one of the most complex rail projects delivered in Sydney in recent years, was successfully commissioned in April 2013. Through effective Planning, which defines what to do; Culture, which supports the will to do it; and Communication, which shows how to do it; the project team was able to drive down project costs and provide value for money to the state of New South Wales. This multifaceted project was delivered in a highly constrained environment, within the Target Outturn Cost (TOC) whilst demonstrating outstanding performance against all of the project objectives. These included meeting 292 key program milestones delivered during 56 weekend possessions, safety, environmental and community performance, management of the Ethane Gas Pipeline (EGP) and management of interfaces. This paper discusses and describes how the Alliance demonstrated achieving an additional estimated $46m in savings through: · Value management before the finalisation of the TOC; · A detailed value engineering review when design was 100% complete; and · Innovations in the design and construction phases, and application of ‘lean construction’ techniques.
