Safety Awareness Forum

Quickway marked the start of National Safe Work Month today with our very first Safety Awareness Forum at the ANZ Stadium.
We had presentations from members of our own team as well as key guest speakers – Paul Monaro discussed prevention and management of soft-tissue injury, Simonette Vaja spoke on mental health matters, and Dallas Adams blew us all away with his raw and tragic personal account on ‘Why Safety Matters’. The impact that an accident in the workplace can have is unimaginable and Dallas uses his own loss to reinforce the important message that : ‘A moment is all it takes’.

R U OK? Day

Quickway are acknowledging ‘R U OK Day’ with toolbox talks across all sites today and have put the ‘R U OK?’ message on all computers.
We encourage people to start a dialogue with anyone you think is struggling. Our vision is a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide.
‘Every Day is R U OK? Day’.
Sometimes conversations are too big for friends, family or colleagues, and this is where professional support is needed. Don’t hesitate to use our free Employee Assistance Programme for help when needed.

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!

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.
