NRT Employee Excellence Award

Today, Quickway’s Bayagrun Nyamsuren received the NRT Employee Excellence Award for his contribution to the Norwest Station as part of the Sydney Metro Northwest project through personal commitment and work ethic.

Northwest Rapid Transit (NRT) combines the experience of the world’s number one commercial rapid transit operator with Australia’s most experienced railway contractor. Their primary goals are to ensure the safety of workers and the public and to minimise impact on the community and the local environment during construction. This aligns with the Quickway values and ethos, which is reflected in Bayagrun’s achievement.

At Quickway we believe in rewarding and recognising the achievements of our people and teams, who are at the heart of all we do. Huge congratulations to Bayagrun!

Safety Employee of the Quarter

This quarters Safety Employee award goes to Cathal Caldwell of our Electrical division, for the second time in a year.

Cathal was commended by a TfNSW representative for using his initiative onsite by extending the locations of his traffic controllers past the designated worksite, thus preventing a bottle neck between work zones. 
This shows forward thinking, meticulous attention to detail, and consideration for the safety of his co-workers and the community. His strong focus on safety, and ability to use initiative is testament to his dedication to site safety in a changing work environment.

Congratulations to Cathal.

Quickway wins first contract in SA

Quickway are supporting CR Rail to lead the track construction on the interstate network upgrade in Adelaide. We are proud to be part of this project, which is our first in South Australia.

The project involves the track upgrade between Dry Creek and Gillman in Adelaide which supports intermodal freight traffic to and from WA as well as a lot of heavy minerals rail freight. The upgrade will improve capacity by increasing rail size along the interstate line, moving rail size from 47 kg per metre to 60kg per metre and along with some other works will allow for higher axle loads (25 tonnes at 80km/h).

Track construction will involve laying sleepers on rail and installing rail in 13m lengths adjacent to existing track. Existing track will be excavated beside, and skeleton track to be put into place and welded. Plain track to be done top ballasted and tamped to design heights and alignments. The project will also involve level crossing upgrades and turnout installations on loop roads.

Quickway on the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Quickway and Sydney Trains have worked together to successfully install 2 expansions switches and 4 rail closures on the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge this weekend.

The safety critical project had many difficulties as we were working adjacent to a live road and above pedestrians at Milsons Point and Circular Quay. Many controls were put into place which resulted in a safely delivered project. This work is challenging due to access constraints, community interfaces and working at heights.

Quickway are honoured to have been given the opportunity to work on this historic Australian landmark.

Quickway-RMS Pacific Highway Upgrade

In another milestone for Quickway, we are happy to announce we have been appointed by Roads and Maritime Services to deliver 23 bridges at 13 locations in the Richmond River to Pimlico section of the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade in northern NSW.

In a first for Quickway, we will carry out the work as head contractor on a Roads and Maritime contract. This significant milestone has been the culmination of two years of work by our team, who have put in place various processes and procedures, and have achieved the relevant certifications and accreditations which have helped to ensure a successful tender outcome.

We look forward to the challenges of the project and to building relationships with Roads and Maritime, their delivery partner Pacific Complete and local stakeholders. Major work is due to start in December 2017 and is expected to be completed by 2020, weather permitting.
