The Gawler Rail Electrification Project was a major rail infrastructure project to electrify the Gawler railway line running 40km from the Adelaide CBD to Gawler in the far northern suburbs of Adelaide for DIT. CATCON’s scope of works for client – Lend Lease (Acciona) – was split up into 3 sections (Stage 3, Stage 5AB and Stage 5C) with works occurring between a dayshift and nightshift.
Works included construction, installation and associated civil works for; WOC/LOC Pads, Booster Pads, UTX Crossings, Main Line CSR Installation, Local Connect 1, Local Connect 2, Signal Footing Installation and Galvanised Steel Trough Installation at Mawson Lakes Train Station.
Permits to work within all areas of the live rail project had to be applied for 2 weeks in advance of works occurring. Permit applications were required to be submitted to undertake Under Track Crossing and tamping of ballast to underside of rail tracks on completion of trench backfill had to be verified by an independent certifier. Programming and reporting to client occurred daily.
