Melbourne Tram Track Renewal

Fulton Hogan’s expertise in rail infrastructure construction and maintenance was applied to the renewal of 920 metres of double tram tracks on Melbourne’s iconic tram network. We removed the existing tracks, which involved the excavation of over 6,000 tonnes of concrete and 245 tonnes of rail. The new track was then installed, including all new electrical conduits and pits, a crushed rock sub-base, installation of 2,600 tramway sleepers and 200 18m lengths of tram rail. Our team also installed two specially prefabricated rail junctions at the entrance to Essendon Tram Depot.

By combining our in-house asphalt supply and the ability to mobilise our maintenance teams quickly to assist with works with our vast civil experience in drainage, pavement construction and structural concrete and light rail experience, we brought a broad range of skills, expertise and knowledge to the Yarra Trams project.
