Landscaping the Northwest Rail Link facilities and stations
Northwest Rail Link is part of ‘Sydney Metro’ – Australia’s biggest public transport project and a priority infrastructure investment for the NSW Government.
Northwest Rapid Transit awarded Glascott Landscape & Civil the landscaping softworks and maintenance package on the 7km rail corridor. Designed by HASSELL, Glascott will commence works early this year.
NSW Manager, Scott Redshaw, says it’s a great win for Glascott.
“We’re really pleased to be working on such an important infrastructure asset. We aim to complete works efficiently and look forward to seeing the rail stations being used and enjoyed by Sydney commuters.”
The project is due for completion late 2018 with maintenance partner, Marsupial Landscape Management maintaining the sites for 18 months.
Scope of works:
– 8 New rail stations surrounds
– 3 Rapid transit stabling yards
– 152,000m3 imported soil
– 24,000m3 site soil
– 200,000m3 organic mulch
– Planting over 1 million shrubs and groundcovers
– Planting over 8,500 established trees
– 500,000m2 hydromulching
