Glenelg Tram Line Victoria Square to City West Extension

The extension of the Glenelg Tram Line from Victoria Square through the CBD necessitated significant pre-works under live traffic conditions to minimise disruption to the city prior to the major shutdown works.

Over a 7 month period of night works DRASOL were engaged to install new signalling ducts and pits across each of the future tram/road intersections.

Services carried out included:

  • Hydro-vac excavation and service locating
  • Road crossings for signalling infrastructure
  • Relocation of street lighting and furniture
  • Electrical conduit and pit installation
  • Pavement and footpath reinstatement

Due to the historically urban nature of the location there were a myriad of undocumented services and in-ground structures that had to be incorporated, modified or worked around during these time-critical out-of-hours shifts.
