Stilcon Scaffolding was engaged to work on the Werribee Station & Hoppers Crossing Station level crossing removal in the over road project. The team designed scaffolds to egress and access, as well as safe protection of u troughs of the over road/rails project which spanned from Werribee to Hoppers Crossing. Stilcon Scaffolding supplied riggers for safe access and rescue procedures in the lift shafts for both projects.
The project required the supply of plant & equipment, scaffolding, & riggers. Stilcon Scaffolding also provided rope rescue procedure material, to ensure the job had safe access and procedures in scaffolding into the u troughs and tight spaces around the stations. This also ensured that other trades could complete their works within these spaces.
A unique element of this project was that the rail is very close to the Western Ring Road.
The scaffolding and the plant & equipment had to work in closely with rail and road, while working on the project, in both occupations and standard day shifts.
Stilcon Scaffolding was aware of the overheads of the live rail and had to create a design which enabled safely securing the scaffolding away from the high voltage rail overheads.
The Stilcon Scaffolding team (Design, Engineering, Estimator & Operations) worked with McConnell Dowell on the Western Program Alliance (WPA) on a 24/7 basis. This enabled the team to provide real time, immediate solutions when McConnell Dowell needed safe access and solutions working in very tight spaces.
