KBR Awarded Another Major Australian Rail Infrastructure Project

09 June 2017

KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today (15/05/2017) it has been awarded a program alliance contract by the Victorian Government for railroad crossing removal projects in Victoria, Australia.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will remove two railroad crossings in an integrated alliance with John Holland, Metro Trains and the Level Crossing Removal Authority. These projects will commence in the coming months and be completed in 2018 with KBR providing engineering and design services for the crossing removals and associated works.

Subject to these projects being delivered in line with strict performance measures, the alliance has the potential to extend the contract to remove a further four railroad crossings.

The works are being undertaken by the Victorian Government as part of its program to remove 50 of the most dangerous and congested railroad crossings across the city of Melbourne. Last year, KBR and its alliance partners successfully delivered the first four railroad crossing removals as part of this government initiative.

"This latest contract builds on KBR's decade long involvement in railroad crossing removals in Victoria and adds to our current portfolio of major rail infrastructure projects in Australia," said Greg Conlon, President Asia Pacific.

"This includes early works for the multi-billion dollar Metro Tunnel and extension to the Mernda metropolitan line, both in Victoria, the Torrens Rail Junction Project in South Australia and the Sydney Metro project in New South Wales.

"We are pleased to be part of these transformational infrastructure projects that are creating jobs, stimulating local economies and delivering safer roads and railways for Australian communities," continued Conlon.

For more than 50 years, KBR has contributed to many of Australia's landmark transportation developments, including some of the nation's most complex urban and regional rail projects.

The contract value was not disclosed. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in KBR's second quarter 2017 backlog of unfilled orders for its Engineering & Construction business.
