Delkor Rail is pleased to have successfully completed delivery of the resilient rail fasteners Delkor Low Profile Eggs and Delkor Alt.1 baseplates to Sydney Metro for stage 1 of Australia’s largest public transport project. Working closely with Northwest Rapid Transit (NRT) the tight project delivery requirements were met without any major issues. A total of 80,000 Eggs and 36,000 Alt.1 baseplate have been delivered.
This ambitious undertaking will see a metro line running all the way from Sydney’s north west to north Sydney, before travelling under Sydney Harbour to the CBD and out to the south west of Sydney. Once complete, Sydney Metro will deliver 31 new metro stations and more than 66 kilometres of new track.
15-kilometres of tunnels are now complete from Bella Vista to Epping, and Stage 2, which commenced early 2018, will see tunnelling from Chatswood to Sydenham, including running under Sydney Harbour and the Sydney CBD.
