John Holland was awarded the Mernda Rail Extension from South Morang Station to Mernda, adding approx. 8km of additional rail network inclusive of 3 new premium stations, a driver’s facility and rail stabling yards. As part of the works, major Ausnet Services power infrastructure was required to be relocated across the entire length of the project. Works required included relocation of underground and overhead 22kV & LV lines, street lighting and installing new HV feeds to all stations and new rail traction substations. John Holland engaged the services of Powerplant to undertake Design and Project Management for the relocation of above ground assets, underground assets, and street lighting assets to assist in delivering the project. Through partnering with Powerplant, John Holland achieved relocation of assets on timeframes months ahead of what would normally apply. John Holland looks forward to working jointly with Powerplant across future infrastructure projects.
