  • Intelligent Asset Management in Newcastle

    Newcastle 2A great presentation on Tuesday night at the Rydges delivered by Sean Reeves our Chair of the Newcastle Chapter. It was a particularly enlightening talk that portrayed asset management as it truly is, a considered collection of data and information and the path to transformation into a genuine asset management plan, confidently protecting and utilising assets.  Sean provided a very useable outline capturing the big picture.

    Numerous questions were asked, and very valuable discussions ensued which followed well into refreshments time. It was great to see new connections and networks being formed.

  • Level Crossing Removal at Moreland and Coburg

    Moreland and CoburgThe level crossing removal work throughout the suburbs of Melbourne has headed north.

    The 2.5km elevated rail bridge1 along the Upfield Line was completed in November 2020, two weeks ahead of schedule. Four sets of boom gates over Bell, Munro and Reynard Streets in Coburg, and Moreland Road in Brunswick were removed, making intersections less congested and increasing safety for the community. Construction of the rail bridge consists of 268 bridge beams, each weighing 110 tonnes and measures more than 30 metres in length. Two custom-built 90 tonnes gantry cranes from the United States were used to access the build in a narrow corridor. At the peak of construction, the two cranes were installing fourteen beams each day, helping to get the job done faster2.
