To accommodate 38 new X’Trapolis trains additional storage and maintenance facilities were required at Craigieburn Train Station. The works included the construction of an additional nine train roads, a new maintenance facility, a train wash bay and a staff amenities building.

The new maintenance facility included a 200 x 65 m building including two OHL isolatable elevated inspection roads with full length pits to cater for 160 m long trains; one no. 6 car jacking road; a future jacking road; 15 tonne overhead travelling crane for bogie transfer to storage of placement on road vehicles; overhead travelling platform and crane for access to all roads; roof access platforms to all elevated roads; parts storage under the path of the overhead crane.

WTP provided bills of quantities for a number of project tenderers, including the successful tenderer, enabling competitive pricing of the project and accurate bid submissions to the Department of Transport.
