Other UK firms working on £6.2bn job include transport architect Weston Williamson and ground engineering firm Keller
Plans by UK architects Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners and Weston Williamson for five new train stations in Melbourne have been unveiled.
Richard Rogers’ practice was added to the design team, which also includes local practice Hassell, behind the stations in the Australian city last year.
The first images of the five new stations, North Melbourne, Town Hall, Anzac, Parkville and State Library, were revealed by Victorian transport minister Jacinta Allan.
The new stations are part of the A$11bn (£6.2bn) Metro Tunnel Project which will create a second underground train route through Melbourne’s central business district.
A consortium made up of Lendlease Engineering, John Holland, Bouygues Construction and Capella Capital won the A$6bn (£3.4bn) tunnel and stations package last July.
A joint venture between Keller and ground engineering and foundation works specialist Intrafor, which is part of Bouygues Construction, was awarded a £113m contract for piling work on the stations earlier this week.
