“Regional Rail Link is a landmark infrastructure project designed to remove major bottlenecks in Victoria's rail network. It will do this by untangling metropolitan and regional tracks as they travel through Melbourne's west into the heart of the city.

The project is being delivered by six work packages, including the Rail Systems project team which is responsible for delivering the project's signalling, train control and communications technology.

A major part of any project the scale of Regional Rail Link is keeping accurate records regarding exactly where new infrastructure has been installed.

The Rail Systems project team engaged C.R Kennedy Survey  Solutions to provide the surveying instruments needed to precisely record the equipment delivered as part of its scope of works.

C.R Kennedy not only provided the equipment, but also support and guidance about their products, enabling the Rail Systems team to meet its contractual requirement to provide the exact location of each piece of equipment it installed to our client.”
