METRONET: Perth’s Newest Rail Service Infrastructure
Over the past few years, Moddex has been a critical part of a big infrastructure project happening in Perth: The Forrestfield-Airport Link (METRONET).
The Forrestfield-Airport Link project will deliver a $1.86 billion underground rail service that will serve as a landmark piece of transport infrastructure for Perth.
Branching from the existing Midland Line, the new link is a state-of-the-art engineering feat which travels through 8km of twin-bored tunnels and at its deepest point is 26m below ground level.
Moddex was contracted by Pacific Industrial Company to provide our adaptable barrier systems to three critical fire escape stair structures within the project’s Emergency Egress Shafts.
Emergency Egress Shafts (EES) are an essential part of this infrastructure providing access from the tunnels to ground level via stairs and lifts. All EES are designed in conjunction with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services to ensure functionality during an emergency situation.
Moddex supplied our modular Moddex Conectabal Commercial Balustrades, Assistrail Disability Handrail, and Tuffrail Industrial Handrails to secure the safe accessibility at numerous sites across the project.
Why was Moddex product selected?
Being underground, timing, accuracy and punctuality were crucial factors required for this project. Moddex was selected because we provide our client with certainty in providing durability, steadfast compliance, and rapid installation.
Our pre-configured systems ensured that the job was low-risk and low cost. The innovative design of our modular systems also means that our barriers are able to be modified to cater for any unique requirements.
All of these factors combined equate to the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.
With Moddex, everything fits.
