Geomotion provides geotechnical monitoring services for railways in Australia.
Recent railway monitoring projects include providing instrumentation and monitoring for Perth’s MetroNet, TfNSW and Sydney Trains, Metro Trains in Melbourne. Geomotion has been involved in some of Australia’s largest rail construction projects including Metro Tunnel in Melbourne, Cross River Rail in Brisbane, Sydney Metro tunnels and station upgrades, Parramatta Light Rail and Forrestfield Airport Link in Perth.
Monitoring services include:
- Under-track crossings
- Track Subsidence
- Landslips and Embankment failures
- Viaducts, Overbridges and Abutments
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project and Central Station is Australia’s busiest railway station. The station will serve as an interchange between the metro, the city train services and country terminals.
Geomotion as part of GLS Monitoring joint venture was involved in providing project wide geospatial, geotechnical and structural instruments and monitoring for the metro box construction.
The Prospect Box Hill project is to be a 25-level apartment building located adjacent to the Belgrave/Lilydale train line and 200m from Box Hill station. The overall design called for five sub-surface levels requiring earthworks, anchoring, and piling. Given the proximity to the rail line and the depth of the proposed excavation, Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) required the monitoring of the nearest track to indicate if any deformation occurred in the rail.
The Forrestfield-Airport Link (FAL) project will deliver an 8.5 km extension of the existing PTA urban rail network in Perth, Western Australia connecting the Midland Line, just past Bayswater Station, to Forrestfield, running underground in twin bored tunnels underneath the Swan River, Tonkin Highway and Perth Airport.
Classed as a heavy civil project, the Perth City Rail Link Project is a $360 million rail job which involves a number of infrastructure changes to the Perth CBD to allow for a new tunnel and the sinking of the Fremantle Train Line between William and Lake/King Street.
In 2018, the multi-purpose 60,000 seat new Perth Stadium opened for national and international cricket and the kick-off of the 2018 AFL season.
To ensure the safe and efficient movement of the crowd within an hour of an event finishing, the new six-platform Stadium Station was one of the new infrastructure projects as a part of the transport strategy.
