Client: Sydney Trains – Transport for NSW
Project Value: $15m
The Guess Avenue bridge is located just south of the Wolli Creek station and carries both the main and local Illawarra rail lines. The bridge is constructed as two separate structures, each carrying a pair of tracks. The bridge replacement was carried out over two back to back possessions, requiring a single site establishment. The existing steel and timber sleeper bridges were replace with steel structures and concrete deck panels with direct fixed rail. The project also required signaling and OHW relocation and adjustment to align with the new bridges. Due to the proximity and number of surrounding residential units, pedestrian access was required to access the station when installation work permitted.
Scope of Service
Co-ordinated with the various team leaders representing the individual rail systems (civil, track, signaling, overhead traction wiring) to develop an integrated construction schedule for the two possession periods. Provide scheduling support during the possessions by working with the construction teams, updating and maintaining the schedule, producing continuous status reporting and early identification of potential issues, possibly preventing the recommissioning of the track enabling passenger services to recommence.
Both possessions received around the clock scheduling support, enabling continuous progress monitoring, updating and reporting of potential issues to both possession co-ordination, project and Sydney Trains management teams. Both bridges were completed on time allowing passenger services to recommence as scheduled. The teams highly commended by Sydney Trains management.
