KOMBI Access Platform Systems
Construction on the level crossing removal works and other rail upgrades has been occurring throughout the Melbourne metro rail system since 2016. To be finalised by 2022 it is estimated, at completion, to have cost approx $6 billion.
In close proximity to the South Yarra Station heavy electrical boxes required a system enabling easy access. The system needed to be designed to support extreme weight and wind loads. A platform that could be hand installed was preferred to avoid any welding or hot works.
SAYFA worked closely with John Holland to design and engineer a large KOMBI platform. Our technical team attended on-site to assist with support and provide detailed shop drawings.
Specialised engineering was undertaken ensuring the KOMBI system had the required capacity to handle the wind and weight loads of the equipment.
With its modular, no-weld and simple to install capabilities, the KOMBI platform was easily assembled and adjusted on site by John Holland personnel.
