Over 12 weeks of construction, 8,200 hours were worked to complete the lift
replacements, in time for the annual Royal Easter Show in Sydney.
The project saw the dismantle and removal of the existing lifts,
installation of the new lifts with modification works to the existing
lift shafts to comply and accommodate the replacements. Further works
included the s upply and installation of the mechanical ventilation
system for the upgraded lift shafts, the upgrade of associated
electricals, and the replacement of a glass panel and the
stainless-steel lift doors.
While Strathfield Station is one of the busiest railway stations in
Sydney, all deliveries took place at night with careful planning to
minimise the disruption to everyday commuters.
Both lifts were open to the public in mid-April, where officials and
the client attended to celebrate the project completion.
