Symal was pleased to be a part of the High Capacity Metro Train (HCMT) Maintenance Facility Project supporting Melbourne’s existing transport network and growing population.
The overall project involved the design, construction, maintenance and financing of 65 High Capacity Metro Trains and a range of ancillary support activities including construction of a new High Capacity Metro Train Maintenance Facility at Pakenham.
The Symal footprint, as part of the overall project, was approximately 400,000m2 and required a team to cut and fill approximately 160,000m3 of in situ fill material, importing and placing 60,000m3 of structural fill and 22,000m3 of rail capping material. The complex earthworks required the remediation of up to 120,000m2 of unsuitable subgrade conditions across the site. Additionally, we supplied and installed over 5km of in-ground stormwater drainage, 20km of above ground swale drainage, constructed 5 large box culvert structures and 56,000m2 of pavement construction for access roads, stabling roads, concrete pavements and car parks.
