Laing O’Rourke use Temporary Fencing in Melbourne
Level Crossing Removal Project
Laing O’Rourke / South Eastern Program Alliance, July 2019
The Victorian Government’s Level Crossing Removal project will see the removal of 50 of Melbourne’s most dangerous and congested level crossings by 2022, with 28 of these already removed. The project is being overseen by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA), and being delivered by an alliance including Laing O’Rourke.
Jaybro holds large quantities of temporary fencing in Melbourne, and has so far supplied 800 metres worth of fencing and accessories to the Malvern and Kooyong sites.
For the Malvern and Kooyong sites, parts of the construction were being undertaken around playgrounds, pedestrian areas, ovals and parks.
Temporary site compounds were set up at Ferrie Oval and Tooronga Park to support the level crossing removal activities. These included construction of a rail bridge and realignment of existing intersections.
Laing O’Rourke required an affordable temporary fence that could be installed for approximately 12 months on site. After assessing purchase vs hire, the project managers approached Jaybro as a reputable temporary fencing supplier. Purchasing temporary fence panels was identified as an economical solution and Jaybro was chosen as a supplier due to our local stock holdings of temporary fencing in Melbourne.
Jaybro supplied 320 temporary fencing panels, 800 fence feet, 640 couplers and 160 braces to create 800 metres worth of temporary fencing.
Fortress Fencing 2000 Series Temporary Fencing is recommended for standard civil and construction projects. It is easily erected to secure your site, and features a galvanised finish and anti-climb mesh. Workers can easily install it with the addition of standard couplers and fence feet.
Each panel measures 2.1 metres high and the quick install process provides immediate security to your site. Perfect for civil construction projects, large building and commercial construction, sporting events and environmental protection areas; it can also be used in small quantities to restrict access around safety hazards on site or in the public domain.
Constructed to meet Australian Standards, the 2000 Series temporary fence has proven itself time and time again on projects large and small. Panels are available individually, or as a package including clamps and concrete filled bases as seen here.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
The removal of 50 dangerous level crossings across Melbourne will improve safety, reduce congestion and enable more frequent train services. The overall project is valued at $5 billion and is due for completion in 2020.
Jaybro has also supplied additional products for this project including custom printed fence mesh, and orange crowd control barriers.
