A fast tracked reputation
Fulton Hogan provides civil construction and rail infrastructure services to suburban light rail tram networks, connecting communities across Australasia’s rural and metropolitan areas.
We’ve fast-tracked our reputation in rail construction by bringing our wealth of experience to deliver quality results, in often challenging environments, where access is tricky, hazards are plentiful and disruption to services must be avoided.
We’re known for our collaborative approach and Fulton Hogan has a strong track record of working with other, equally recognised, rail infrastructure experts to provide large-scale construction and maintenance services for national and regional rail providers.
Our vertically-integrated business model means we can supply many of our own materials, such as asphalt, bitumen emulsion and crushed rock from our asphalt plants and quarries that are conveniently located across the region, while our pre-cast concrete business specialises in the beams, parapets and barriers essential to many rail construction projects.
Because we have such considerable in-house resources at our disposal, supplemented by specialist subcontractors where necessary, we offer a one-stop-shop for managing rail construction and rail infrastructure projects in this specialised light rail sector – something that makes us stand out as a leader in the sector.
Attention to safety
We understand that working in rail corridors demands 100% attention to safety. The teams we bring to these situations are capable and confident in potentially hazardous environments and we are also highly experienced in working within the time constraints and accessibility challenges that typically come with jobs that need completion within an existing, functioning rail system.
Fulton Hogan’s expertise in rail infrastructure construction and maintenance includes Melbourne’s iconic network in the heart of the CBD. With our civil construction activities –including our light rail rehabilitation work around Melbourne – we have consistently demonstrated a thorough understanding of the issues and approaches and we always engage in thorough and open stakeholder and community consultation to ensure we listen to the needs of the communities most affected by the project.
With our skilled, multi-disciplined engineering and design teams and our reputation for working seamlessly with specialist sub-contractors, Fulton Hogan’s reputation as the best choice in rail is growing rapidly. It’s a privilege to be involved in such significant development – helping to build and maintain an effective transport network that will serve communities for generations.
