Newmarket Railway Station
Newmarket station in New Zealand is the second busiest on the busy Auckland rail network. The station, junction and surrounding track are being redesigned as part of Project DART to eliminate bottlenecks and increase efficiency and capacity. Temporary public access is required for the next 24 months.
Doubled up aluminium lattice girders
Camelspace have provided a 112m ramp with a 38m bridge over the tracks and a ramp down other side. The supply of non-slip flooring, closed risers on stairs, public street lighting (mounted on Allround standards), and concrete foundations were all included in Camelspace’s contract. Note that the Layher aluminium lattice girders were doubled up to support the bridging.
Camelspace have since provided similar access at New Lynn station.
