Quickway were responsible for the track construction of the project which involved turnout installation, free welding, adjustment welding, plain track construction and resurfacing.
Our excellent working relationship with Laing O’Rourke assisted us in successfully delivering this important transport hub for the city of Newcastle.
The project was delivered midweek and over a few weekend possessions. During these possessions a large amount of work was completed in a very short time frame. Detailed planning and coordination with other disciplines was necessary to ensure a safe and efficient worksite.
