Supplier: Ingal EPS By: Joanna Forsyth

INGAL EPS was able to work closely with the Theiss Balfour Beatty alliance in supplying a fully engineered, Department of Transport approved product.

In response to the rapidly growing population of Victoria, the federal and Victorian governments have invested $3.225 billion towards Regional Rail Link — Australia's largest public transport infrastructure project and Melbourne's first new major rail line in 80 years. The project will increase the size of Victoria's rail network by laying 90km of new track.

A section of the project from Footscray to Deer Park includes upgrades to Footscray station, major bridge works, laying over 7.5km of new track, and modifications to the metropolitan signalling system from Footscray to Sunshine.

Having worked with Thiess on projects such as the Newport Stabling Siding, and the Wonthaggi Power Station for the Desal Plant, INGAL EPS was contracted to supply 3x 18m temporary telecommunication poles; 36x 12m lighting poles for the car parks; 17x 12m joint use lighting and CCTV poles (which were specifically designed for this project); and 13x 4m CCTV poles to the Footscray–Deer Park Rail Upgrade and will also be supplying similar products to stage two.

From the beginning, INGAL EPS was able to work closely with the alliance in supplying a fully engineered, Department of Transport approved product.
