Cross River Rail, technical advisor to Delivery Authority

Technical advice on client-side for ISCA rating. Strategic guidance and assistance on Queensland’s largest infrastructure project to obtain an ‘Excellent’ IS rating

The Cross River Rail project is a new 10.2-kilometre rail line which includes 5.9 kilometres of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and CBD.

The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority (DA) is committed to the delivery of a world-class, sustainable and resilient public transport system.  This project will provide a legacy that improves quality of life, grows economic opportunity and activates urban precincts in a sustainable manner.

Drawing on our extensive experience in sustainability on linear infrastructure, Losee Consulting is working closely with the DA to embed sustainability, manage major delivery partners and guide achievement of an ISCA program rating of ‘Excellent’.

So far, we have contributed the—

  • Sustainability Guidance Plan
  • Policies for sustainability and procurement
  • Program Rating Approach (i.e. how individual project ratings combine and integrate for the overall rating)
  • Base Case Framework
  • Review of tenders for major delivery partners
  • Climate Change Risk Assessment
  • Program level credit submission material.

Working with the DA we have successfully established a sustainability program and are keeping it on track.
