Client: Sydney Trains – Transport for NSW
Project Value: $15m
The Parramatta Road rail bridge is located at Granville and carries the main and local rail traffic between Sydney and Parramatta in the west. The bridge crosses Parramatta Road, a major six lane arterial road required both road and pedestrian traffic diversions during the project. The project consisted of renewing / modifying the four bridge sections each carrying a single track. The existing timber sleepers being replaced with precast concrete panels and direct fix rail. Three of the four steel bridge structures required renewal with a forth structure being temporally removed to enable installation of the other three. The project was completed during a four day Christmas possession window.
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 possession period. Provided scheduling support during the possession 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.
Sydney Trains executive management (Howard Collins) acknowledged the successful delivery of this difficult and complex bridge renewal project confirming Sydney Trains ability to deliver large complex projects within strict time constraints. Scheduling support enabled the continuous monitoring of progress.
