Westconnex New M5, St Peters Interchange & Kingsgrove Sections

TOBCO is proud to announce it has completed its scope of work on the New Westconnex M5, St Peters Interchange and Kingsgrove sections. It was a pleasure working with CPB Dragados Samsung Joint Venture (CDSJV) to deliver this project and achieving the successful opening of the new M5 project for TFNSW. TOBCO was engaged in late 2016 at the commencement of the project to undertake an ASP level 1 utility relocation project. As time went on the client extended the scope to include multiple power, gas, communications, ITS relocation projects. One of the major milestones included 6 weeks of planning for TOBCO to undertake a complex Low Voltage Outage on feeder LV9. It was one of the largest Low Voltage Outages on for the utilities arm of Local Roads for the New M5, enabling much of the civil road and pavement works to continue.

WestConnex Project Works

One of TOBCOs engineers Jack Gale who was heavily involved in the project stated”

The third and final night of “LV9” was by far the largest, with 4 truck mounted EWP’s, 3 Vac trucks, a lifter borer and our crane truck “Big Freddie” working away, not to mention the numerous trucks and excavators onsite all working in tandem with the specialist plant. That night 14 bays of overhead conductors were dropped and 9 wooden poles were removed in the space of a few hours to commission hundreds of metres of new underground LV cable.

This is an achievement that I am especially proud of, many hours had been put into the project over the years planning and coordinating works to install conduit and pull cable which culminated into the commissioning phase of the outage itself, a job well done by all involved.”
