Adelaide Metropolitan Rail Revitalisation Programme

As part of the South Australian Government’s plan to revitalize the public transport network over a 10 year period, the entire existing rail passenger network was upgraded. The Rail Revitalisation Programme was the centrepiece of the Department of Transport and Infrastructure’s investment and transformed the rail network.

DRASOL were engaged by Tracksure to deliver the majority of the drainage and signalling infrastructure upgrades, as well as providing a turn-key solution for level crossing replacement and re-sheeting activities. Almost 80 km of formation drainage and 30 level crossings were upgraded during the course of this significant capital works project.

Work packages delivered included:

  • Level crossing construction and replacement
  • UTX (under track crossings)
  • Track formation drainage
  • Signalling infrastructure
  • Station excavation and formation construction
  • Major Council stormwater installation (1.6m diameter RCP)
  • Pump stations
  • Culverts and headwalls
  • Rock beaching and scour protection

DRASOL specialised in detailed earthworks and excavation activities in restricted access spaces, our zero-swing plant proving ideal for working in stations, cuttings and under bridges.

Our experienced crews are capable of stripping track, replacing and remediating formation, installing signalling and drainage and placing ballast and sleepers ready for the track construction gangs to complete the process.
