Adelaide Electrification Stage 1

Client: Laing O’Rourke

 

The electrified system to be installed on these lines is similar to the system that operates successfully in Brisbane and Perth, and many other locations around the world. The voltage is similar to that carried along many arterial roads on the ETSA Utilities power distribution network. The works to electrify the Noarlunga and Seaford lines will include: The project includes:

 

Installation of masts and overhead wiring system

 

Construction of substations to power the electrified system

 

Safety screens at bridges and pedestrian overpasses

 

Relocation of services (mostly existing overhead electricity cables) where they are in the way of the rail corridor overhead wiring system

 

Modifications to the existing rail signalling system to integrate with electrification

 

Upgrade to the existing network communications system.
