Quickways Second RMS Win-Chifley Rd

We are proud to announce that Roads and Maritime Services has awarded Quickway the contract to deliver a new bridge across the main western rail line on Chifley Road at Clarence. This forms part of the $95 million Great Western Highway and Bells Line of Road upgrade, and is Quickway’s second project with RMS.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole MP made the announcement, stating:

“… The new bridge on Chifley Road (will) improve safety for all road users and also improve regional access. The new bridge will have wider lanes, road shoulders and improved safety barriers. Construction is being carried out in line with pre-planned rail shutdowns to limit disruption for motorists and rail users. It is due to be completed in 2020 and once open to traffic, the existing bridge will be removed.”

We look forward to the challenges of the project, and to working collaboratively with RMS and Sydney Trains in delivering this project successfully.

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!
