Chatswood Interchange

Project:Chatswood Transport Interchange
Client: Laing O’Rourke (originally Barclay Mowlem)
Date: 2005-2007

Locaters Pty Ltd was initially engaged on a full-time basis to provide for the design and construction of a significant Telstra redirection, and work associated with installing new bridge decks at Help Street and Albert Avenue, Chatswood.

Our role was to collect and distribute Sub-surface Utility Information accurately and efficiently to project managers and field personnel.

Project issues:

Existing and operational RailCorp communications, electrical and signalling infrastructure
The existing Telstra network crossed the rail corridor at two locations from a Telstra exchange on the western side of Chatswood Station. Both conduit banks contained multiple optic fibres owned by Telstra and other network providers servicing Chatswood City Centre and surrounding areas. Both existing crossings impacted the design of underground parking and bus interchange facilities.
New rail lines on the up and down meant both bridge decks needed widening.
The existing bridge at Albert Avenue was ‘low clearance’ requiring lowering of the pavement level.
High-risk utilities like high-pressure gas and optic fibre networks
Shopping precinct with heavy pedestrian traffic
Demolition, sheet piling and trenching associated with general construction activities
