KBR, Inc. announced that it has been awarded an alliance contract by the Victorian Government for Railroad Crossing Removal Projects in Victoria, Australia. Under the terms of the contract, KBR and John Holland will remove four railroad crossings in Victoria. This work is expected to be performed over three years, with KBR providing design services for the railroad crossing removals and associated works in an integrated alliance with John Holland, VicRoads, Metro Trains Melbourne and Public Transport Victoria.

The project will remove railroad crossings at Centre Road in Bentleigh, North Road in Ormond, McKinnon Road in McKinnon and Burke Road in Glen Iris. Delivering the grade separations and station rebuilds at four sites as one coordinated package should create efficiencies in costs, reductions in disruptions to rail and road users and create accelerated delivery of safer transportation infrastructure. The contract value was not disclosed. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in KBR's second quarter 2015 backlog of unfilled orders for its Engineering & Construction business line.
