of the $2.1 Billion Sunbury Line Upgrade, the Sydenham Drain Bridge was constructed
to enable more advanced
trains to run on the line, creating additional capacity of 113,000 more
passengers every week during peak periods.
The Sunbury Line Upgrade project is scheduled for completion in 2023 and will maximise the benefits of the Metro Tunnel Project; with a combination of power upgrades and platform extensions that are necessary to enable High Capacity Metro Trains (HCMTs) to run on the line.
These upgrades will ensure the new, high-capacity trains can reliably run all the way from Cranbourne and Pakenham to Sunbury – linked through the Melbourne CBD by the Metro Tunnel.
Products/configurations used on project:
- Tuffrail Industrial Handrail TR20 (Custom Mesh)
- Tuffrail Industrial Handrail TR25 (Custom Mesh)
Why was Moddex product selected?
Moddex stands apart from the crowd by innovating our off-the-shelf product line by integrating with bespoke solutions.
That’s why our client – Rail Infrastructure Alliance, came to us to supply the custom retrofit mesh handrail design. Moddex was able to adapt the existing off-the-shelf solution and modify it to the specific requirements of Metro Trains Melbourne.
The Moddex design process ensured any potential site problems were spotted early and overcome, and that when materials arrived on site there were no holdups; with everything fitting effortlessly in place.
The seamless installation of the Moddex Tuffrail system meant the product could be delivered onsite as it was required and installed within the next day; ensuring the project met its deadlines and delivered full compliance to the relevant standards.
