Eastlink Tram Extension Project

The first stage of works for the expanded AdeLINK tram network, EastLINK is an extension of Adelaide’s tramline along North Terrace to the East End of the CBD.

DRASOL provided multiple work crews to support the JV in many aspects of project delivery, from pre-works service relocation to new signalling infrastructure, track drainage, excavations for turnouts, formation preparation and pavement reinstatement.

Works carried out included:

  • Service location
  • Hydro-vac excavation
  • Signalling pit and pipe infrastructure
  • Detailed excavation and demolition
  • Minor concreting and pavement construction
  • Street lighting and furniture installation

The project comprised a variety of shutdown and out- of-hours working scenarios in a live-traffic environment, with significant interfaces with local businesses and the general public.

Our autonomous work groups operated under full Rail Safe Working throughout the project, including activities under existing overheads being managed by our in-house PRES (Person Responsible for Electrical Safety).
