Local Toowoomba businesses will have an opportunity to register their interest in being a part of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) Project with the launch of the RangeLink website.
RangeLink is one of three consortia shortlisted by the Queensland Government to deliver the TSRC Project.
The website will allow local suppliers to register their interest in working with RangeLink and to find out about the current Request for Quotes that have been released to the market.
RangeLink spokesperson Frederic Pergay said providing opportunities for local business to participate was a priority for the consortium.
"The RangeLink consortium is unique as it comprise international expertise in the delivery of Public Private Partnerships, combined with extensive local resources," Mr Pergay said.
"Through our local participant Wagners, and in association with Ostwald Bros and FKG, we already have a strong investment in the community and regional economy," he said.
"But we are also committed to growing the locals supply chain by providing Toowoomba businesses with the opportunity to be part of this transformative infrastructure project."
Mr Pergay said RangeLink were currently looking for quotes from local suppliers for a range of goods and services, from earthworks to mechanical equipment and labour hire.
"We are also interested in opportunities with Indigenous enterprises and in building the capacity of the local market for future opportunities," he said.
"With a strong local flavour already, we value not only short-term opportunities for local suppliers, but will be working towards developing a legacy for the community that will have lasting benefits for the region," Mr Pergay said.
