It was announced last Friday that a group led by Canadian rail and aerospace company Bombardier had won a $4.1 billion contract to help upgrade Queensland’s train fleet.

Reuters reports that the consortium, which also includes John Laing, Itochu Corp and Uberior, will provide “75 electrical multiple units, build a depot and provide maintenance for 30 years.”

The group was named as the preferred tenderer last November to provide the 75 six-car trains.

Bombardier will control $2.7 billion worth of the contract for the rolling stock project.
