Glengowrie Tram Depot Upgrade

The Glengowrie Tram Depot was upgraded to expand and convert the stabling yards from a timber sleeper/ballast arrangement into a fully concreted track slab.

DRASOL were engaged to install signalling infrastructure, track drainage and carry out detailed excavation for new overhead power support gantries, storage buildings and tram wash facilities.

We also assisted with the replacement of the depot entrance turnouts after new office facilities had been constructed.

Services included:

  • Trade waste and grease arrestors
  • Wastewater and potable water service modifications
  • Track formation and drainage
  • Track slab pre-pour reinforcement preparation

This challenging project was delivered in a live-rail environment as the depot remained fully operational throughout the construction programme. Our crews were well-received on site due to their diligent approach to safety and adherence to strict electrical isolation procedures.
