CROSS RIVER RAIL – BOGGO ROAD STATION

A HEAVY LIFTING SOLUTION FOR ONE OF BRISBANE’S BUSIEST TRANSPORT INTERCHANGES

SHARE

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The new underground Boggo Road Station is part of the Cross River Rail project – a new 10.2-kilometre rail line in Brisbane delivered by the Queensland Government.

Joint venture partners – CPB Contractors, BAM, Ghella and UGL Design and Construction (CBGU D&C JV) – awarded the heavy lift cranage contract to Marr Contracting after the Pulse consortium, of which CBGU is the D&C member won the competitive State tender to deliver the design and construction package for the project.

After previously working with two of the joint venture partners (CPB Contractors and Ghella) on construction of the Sydney Metro Barangaroo and Martin Place stations, Marr was invited by the CBGU D&C JV to work with them at bid stage to develop a cranage solution that would support the desired construction methodology for the project which was based around heavy precast elements and beams.

OUR SOLUTION

The cranage solution – using two of Marr’s M2480D heavy lift luffing (HLL) tower cranes – has allowed the joint venture partners to adopt a construction methodology similar to that used on the successful Sydney Metro projects to help drive productivity, improve safety, and reduce time and project cost.
