Artarmon Station Upgrade Project Completion
We are delighted to advise the safe and successful completion of the Artarmon Station Accessibility Upgrade project for TfNSW.
The project was delivered on schedule, on budget and with no lost time injuries.
The Transport Access Program is a NSW Government initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure.
23,708 hours were worked to deliver the project which included two new lifts, a new pedestrian bridge to improve access from Hampden Road and a new accessible parking space on Hampden Road.
The structure was positioned above the down track and supported using trestle tower support structures. The footbridge and support towers were modified off site, including roofing, flooring and security screens and transported to site for installation during the WE8 possession.
A new set of emergency egress stairs were installed once the footbridge structure was complete to allow for emergency egress from the footbridge structure. These were structural steel framed components with precast concrete stair tread sections.
The stair structure was completely assembled onsite in close proximity to the rail corridor under tight controls. To achieve the required safety controls surrounding the new structures on Hampden road an engineered structural deflection wall was constructed incorporating the cast in-situ concrete footings for all the new structures.
The wall was within 600mm of the existing corridor fence and required constant monitoring and tight controls during its construction. Both the structures on Hampden road and the platform are supported on bored piles to a depth of 12m. To achieve the correct levels required for the DDA compliance from the new disabled parking bay and lift shaft the Hampden road surface was raised.
Modifications to the existing platform canopy and services were undertaken to allow for the new lift shaft structure and footbridge support tower. Other modifications to the platform included relocation of existing electrical, lighting, CCTV, station communications, PA, ticketing systems, OPAL and SPI.
A complete upgrade of the existing power into the station was carried out as the station was running at full capacity. This involved new services including GST, HV pad mount kiosk, ISMSB and new DB in the station masters building as well as all the wiring and service containment associated with the upgrade.
Special thanks to the project team, subcontractors and consultants that have tirelessly helped throughout the project.
