INGAL EPS was able to provide a cost-effective solution in providing Enfield Stabling Yard with a safe working environment.

Train stabling yards are used for sorting, storing, and repairing passenger cars. They are essential in delivering clean, safe, secure, and reliable passenger services.

With the integration of the Waratah assets into the existing NSW Transport network in early 2012, a temporary stabling yard had to be constructed for 16 x 8 car trains to enable the transition into passenger service of the new Waratah trains and the retirement of non-air-conditioned trains. The solution was Enfield Stabling Yard.

As the construction on the Enfield Stabling Yard was conducted within an operational heavy rail yard, lighting was an important factor in providing a safe working environment. 

INGAL EPS was able to provide a cost-effective solution to this problem in the form of 4m, 6m, and 8m square-section hinged poles to RailCorp Specification. Not only will this ensure the safety of the stabling yard staff, but the increased visibility will also aid in deterring vandalism.
