Global Rail Australia Complete Track Upgrade for Yarra Trams
Global Rail Australia has undertaken a project to remove and replace worn rail on curves on ballasted track at Queensway St Kilda and we are pleased to confirm that all works have been successfully accomplished within the rail occupation, provided by Yarra Trams, with no technical issues. The project was complicated by remote working; however, this was managed through a meticulously safe approach and a management presence throughout the works.
Works included rerailing both the Up Track and Down track curves, which covered the following managed scope:
- Unclipping rail
- Replacing worn rail with new 41Kg rail
- Welding and restressing
- Weld testing
All works were completed utilising in-house resources, supervision and plant over a single weekend and supported by a staging program and procurement plan, which were key to the success of the project. We are pleased to say that no reports or incidents were raised by the public or client.
