Seaford Rail Extension
Thiess-Macdow in a joint venture were responsible for the extension of Seaford Railway line. The joint venture team engaged Tonkin Consulting to provide proof engineering services for the project. Several design packages were provided to verify the design against the requirements of the brief and appropriate design standards.
Design packages requiring verification included three road/rail bridges, two depot buildings, internal roads and shared use paths, stormwater drainage for the corridor, road safety auditing in five stages and building certification. Each package was provided at various stages of design with verification comments and calculations. Tonkin Consulting also conducted a road safety audit of the Seaford Road bridgeworks to assess road crash potential.
