KiwiRail - Electrical Substations and Track Circuits

Electrical Substations and Track Circuits

Client: KiwiRail

Impact had a key role in preparing Wellington’s rail infrastructure for the introduction of a new train fleet in 2010 – a $550 million project that included double-tracking and electrifying the North Island Main Trunk line, extending the reach of the metro rail network to double its capacity, and installing a third, bidirectional train line at the entrance to Wellington Station to handle the increased train traffic.

In this massive two-year programme we project managed the construction of 11 new substations (in a very tight 10-month timeframe) and administered the contract for the track circuits programme.

I have worked with Impact since 2005. As Advisor to Wellington International Airport Limited, I worked closely with Impact in their role as Project Director for the International Terminal Development. Since Impact’s appointment to manage the additional Substations for KiwiRail’s Wellington Region Rail Project, they have rapidly become an indispensable member of my team. They have proven to be proactive, hands-on Project Managers whom I can trust to resolve the intricate issues associated with construction within an operational rail environment. I highly recommend Impact.
