Perth MetroRail City Tunnel Project, Western Australia
Ancon has manufactured a 1.5km galvanised steel walkway and all the necessary support fixings for the new Perth MetroRail project.
The walkway is supported by 1500 special cantilever brackets fixed to hot rolled 72/48 channels radiussed to suit the tunnel profile. The grid flooring was secured to the brackets by Lindapter Gratefast fasteners. The walkway will be used by maintenance personnel but has been designed to withstand the weight of passengers in the event of an emergency.
The new MetroRail City Tunnel Project (valued at $300 million) has effectively doubled Transperth’s rail network. Undertaken by Leighton Kumagai JV, it commences at Esplanade station under the city from William Street rising at Fitzgerald Street.
Ancon can design and manufacture special corrosion-resistant fabrications ideal for use in heavy industrial environments or locations where maintenance access is impractical or impossible.
In addition to the supply of structural fixings, Ancon is a leading supplier of stainless steel sections and flooring.
Ancon is an ASSDA accredited specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.
There are various methods of fixing to concrete or steel frames.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
