Membrey’s will be taking part in a number of the Level Crossing Removals throughout Melbourne – having already completed the Ormond, Bentleigh and Centre Rds. The next project we have our eyes on is the concrete segments for the following project; The Major construction to remove the nine level crossings between Dandenong and the City is about to begin.
From early August, two 'gantry cranes' weighing 230 tonnes will be installed near Murrumbeena Station in readiness for an advanced engineering feat never seen before in Victoria.
The huge gantry cranes — 40 metres wide and 150 metres long — will be used to install 2,500 locally-manufactured segments of the new elevated rail while trains are running below.
This methodology significantly reduces the impact on passengers and nearby residents during construction.
This video shows the steps the project will take to complete the railways – and Membrey’s will help “Make it Happen!”
