Date:

Works commenced on site in March 2014 and reached practical completion at the end of August 2015.

 

Overview:

Challenges:

The complexities with working around Sydney Trains high voltage cables and a heritage state significant rail underbridge.

The Project Studio engaged and managed all the external consultants and the Principal Contractor via the government procurement process whilst liaising with internal departments to ensure all the project objectives were addressed which included consulting with the community and other relevant stakeholders.

 

Highlights:

The successful completion and high daily usage of the once disused rail line into a multi award winning public space used by thousands of people every day.
