Water Filled Barriers for Melbourne Metro Rail Project
Author: Brendan Clayton Date Posted:27 March 2019
Melbourne Metro Rail Tunnel chooses Industroquip Safety & Signage for water filled barrier and anti-gawk screen contract
The New Metro Tunnel will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the west to Cranbourne/Pakenham in the south-east, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations.
The Metro Tunnel will create capacity on the network to enable more than a half a million additional passengers per week across Melbourne’s train network to use the rail system during the peak periods.
The project scope includes
- Twin nine-kilometre rail tunnels from the west of the city to the south-east as part of a new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line.
- Five new underground stations: North Melbourne (in the Arden precinct), Parkville (under Grattan Street), State Library (at the northern end of Swanston Street), Town Hall (at the southern end of Swanston Street) and Anzac (under the Domain Interchange on St Kilda Road). The two stations under Swanston Street will be directly connected to the City Loop at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street Station.
- High capacity signalling to maximise the efficiency of the new fleet of High Capacity Metro Trains.
- Train / tram interchange between Anzac Station and the Domain Interchange.
The Metro Tunnel Project chose Industroquip to deliver the project based on a few key points:
Ability to add Anti-Gawk Screens to the barriers:
Industroquip's water filled barriers are compatible with our own anti-gawk screens that provide better security and site privacy from passers by.
Barriers need to be speed rated:
Industroquip's water filled barriers are speed rated.
Barriers had to be pretested for leaks prior to despatch:
As the site engineers have had negative experience with competitors water filled barriers they wanted to ensure all water filled barriers were leaked tested prior to despatch. Pretesting for leaks is standard practice here at Industroquip.
