The Cross River Rail project, Queensland’s largest public transport project, will help create the capacity needed to meet future predicted increased demand.
The Rail, Integration, and Systems (RIS) package of the Cross River Rail project is being delivered by the Unity Alliance, which includes, CPB Contractors, UGL Engineering, Jacobs Group, and AECOM.
Cross River Rail is a new 10.2km rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills which includes 5.9 km of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and CBD.
The project includes four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street, and Roma Street as well as upgrades to eight above-ground stations including Salisbury, Rocklea, Moorooka, Yeerongpilly, Yeronga, Fairfield, Dutton Park, and Exhibition. Cross River Rail will unlock the bottleneck at the core of the current network, allowing more trains to run more often. The project will also integrate with roads and bus services, providing a turn-up-and-go transport system for the whole of South East Queensland.
As Australia’s leading compaction experts Conplant is proud to be supplying the project with compaction equipment and knows what it takes to help increase productivity and reduce downtime on projects of this nature.
Chosen as a key supplier for Compaction Equipment based on a combination of offering value for money, is a 100% Australian owned business and Conplant ability to deliver the required services.
The company’s unique safety systems and fresh service approach also proved pivotal in the award of the contract. Safety systems including ROPS2, a Roll Over Preventative System with a two-stage warning and function management, and unmanned technology are among the features that will be used on this project.
The company has a robust reputation for ensuring projects are completed on time, ensuring flexibility and safety remain top of mind, form over 59 years.
