Global Rail Australia Powering Forward On Bayside Rail Project
Global Rail Australia Pty Ltd. is moving though the gears, as the company works towards final completion of its contract at Caulfield Railway Station on behalf of MTM.
The project, which is being cleverly phased in two sections, so as to minimise disruption – North and the South – is on target for its completion date later next month. The complexity of the project while working on a live station is illustrated through the multiple daily interfaces, including: electrical power lines and train power lines (OHLE), numerous service and utility providers, as well as local councils, passengers, road users, station staff and the local university campus. This has seen Global Rail Australia demonstrate its expertise in the safe management of stakeholders while executing works in a live railway environment.
The works, which form part of the (Aus) $100m upgrade of the Frankston railway line, include the extension to the existing canopy coverage on Platform 1 and 4, and are progressing well, with the Southside works now complete.
Global Rail Australia is fully responsible for the planning, supply, fabrication and installation of all the station works, which will significantly improve the commuter experience.
CEO, Ivan Holloway is pleased with progress to date and said:
“As a preferred supplier to Metro Trains Melbourne, Global Rail Australia has hit the ground running with this complex railway construction project. The project, which involves multi-disciplinary activities in a live station environment, is being delivered to the highest quality and has a blemish free record to date.
“We look forward to completing the North Section in the same manner and concluding this project to improve the overall aesthetic and functionality of this important railway precinct.”
Global Rail Australia is part of the Global Infrastructure Group and is a leading Australian provider of design, construction and commissioning services for clients across a wide range of engineering and infrastructure industries. The company was selected as the preferred contractor on this project for its in-house capabilities, scale and supply chain partnerships.
