Client
Transport for NSW
$Value of project
$1.5 million
Location of project
Cardiff, NSW
Contract period
August 2014 - November 2014
Scope of works

The Cardiff Link Ramp project is part of the Transport Access Program (TAP) for Transport for NSW and consisted of the construction of a vehicle link ramp to connect the upper and lower car park areas at the Cardiff Railway Station to enable better access for commuters to the recently refurbished station and to reduce traffic congestion in adjoining Mary Street. The works form part of the $14 million upgrade of the station that also include new lifts that link the pedestrian footbridge to the station and also the lower car park enabling disable access to a very busy station.

Project Highlights

Due to the site being the only access point to the rail corridor unimpeded and uninterrupted access 24 hours/day, 7 days/week  had to be provided, clear and well sign posted pedestrian access had to be maintained around the perimeter of the site for commuter access, and due to close proximity to neighbouring residences, regular community liaison had to be maintained throughout the project to ensure minimal disruption to the occupants. An unexpected asbestos find of fragments meant excavation of contaminated material had to be removed, sampled and cleared, as well as a large number of car tyres hidden along the overgrown fence-line of adjoining properties were removed and taken to the local tyre recycling facility.  The narrow site had limited access withheight and turning restrictions along with busy parking conditions in theexisting car park and Mary Street access. Scheduling of many aspects of the work was critical to enable trucks and vehicles to enter/exit the site.
