Australian-Chinese consortium Evolution Rail has been chosen as the preferred provider of Melbourne's new suburban rail fleet.

The Victorian government project is to design, build and maintain 65 high-capacity metro trains, design and build two training simulators, and design and build a maintenance facility and a light service facility.

The consortium, which includes Downer EDI and CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles and Plenary Group, will sign formal contracts with the state government in coming months.
