Traffic & Crowd Control Success at Western Sydney Airport Station Project
The CPB Ghella JV Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport Station Boxes and Tunnelling project is a crucial component of the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport infrastructure pipeline. This project encompasses the design and construction of excavations for station boxes at multiple station sites and the creation of tunnels connecting these stations. This new metro rail line, previously known as Sydney Metro Greater West, is set to become a vital transportation artery for Greater Western Sydney, linking communities and travellers to the Western Sydney International Airport and the rapidly growing region.
The main challenge in this project is the construction of two sections of twin tunnels spanning a total combined length of 9.8 kilometres. These tunnels will run between St Marys and Orchard Hills stations and between the Western Sydney Airport Terminal and Aerotropolis stations. Additionally, station box excavations and civil works are required at various locations, including St Marys, Orchard Hills, Western Sydney Airport Terminal, Western Sydney Aerotropolis, and the construction of a temporary precast concrete factory. This intricate and extensive underground work demands precise planning, efficient execution, and stringent safety measures to ensure the successful completion of the project.
To address the complex logistical challenges presented by the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport Station Boxes and Tunnelling project, we offered a comprehensive solution that included the strategic use of various fencing and barrier products.
1. Traffic Control Measures: Trafix 2000 Orange and White water-filled barriers were employed for on-site vehicle direction and delineation, effectively guiding vehicles through construction zones to enhance worker safety and operational efficiency.
2. Crowd Control Measures: Crowd control barriers were employed to manage pedestrian direction and delineation. These barriers played a crucial role in ensuring the safe movement of pedestrians around the construction zones and helped maintain clear pathways for both workers and passersby.
3. Work Zone Separation: Temporary fencing was strategically deployed to separate work zone areas from passageways, enhancing safety and preventing unauthorised access to potentially hazardous areas.
4. Concrete Crash Barriers: Concrete crash barriers along with XT edge protection panels were strategically placed to provide additional protection and safety measures, ensuring the security of workers and the integrity of the construction zones.
By implementing these innovative traffic and crowd control measures, CPB Ghella JV were able to optimise safety, streamline operations, and successfully address the unique challenges posed by the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport Station Boxes and Tunnelling project. As construction progresses, this vital infrastructure project is poised to provide significant economic benefits to western Sydney and contribute to the region's growth and development.
