Categories Precast Concrete Pits, Custom Precast Products
Location Brisbane CBD, QLD
South East Queensland’s population is rising, putting their transport network under increasing pressure.
The current rail network is already nearing capacity and is constrained by a single river crossing and just four inner-city stations, causing a bottleneck that limits the ability to run more trains.
The Cross River Rail project was designed to unlock this bottleneck by delivering a second river crossing, allowing more trains to run more often and enabling a turn-up-and-go public transport system across the entire region.
To complete this project through, contractors UNITY Alliance required a series of custom-manufactured precast pits, made to meet Queensland Rail and Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) specifications.
Civilmart reviewed design drawings and offered like for like solutions. Where possible, we provided alternate designs to help keep costs down for our customer.
Civilmart has begun to deliver the required custom pits to enable the Cross River Rail project to go forward. With a 4-year project life, we have only just begun to deliver the required products. Providing a click and connect solution by supplying precast units to suit onsite requirements, we have been able to save UNITY Alliance considerable time and money.
