- The Botany Rail Duplication project involved the construction of new track within the rail corridor for a distance of about 3km to provide dual track between Botany and Mascot by duplicating the existing single line.
- The Botany Yard Bi-Directional Signalling project aimed to improve the efficiency of train arrival and departures in Botany Yard by reconfiguring the signalling infrastructure to enable bi-directional signalling on the Arrival and Departure tracks.
Together, the two projects will enable dual-track bi-directional movements for the length of the Botany Line and into Botany Yard, increasing operational capacity to support future growth.
To assist the development of both projects, Lycopodium was engaged to survey the third party utilities and surface features whilst undertaking an assessment on the condition, capacity and location of existing CSR and cable route infrastructure. These findings were used to provide baseline information to inform future design and construction phases.
