Bullaburra Station

Project Details

Bullaburra Station is located on the Main West Line 98km west of Sydney near the Blue Mountains in an electrified section of the rail network. Eptec was engaged to remove the hazardous coating system and apply a new specified coating system. All these works commenced on the Saturday 6am and were completed for handover by 8pm Sunday night – a tight 38 hour window.

The footbridge recently underwent significant refurbishment work, including replacement of stairways and balustrades as well as the blasting and painting of the stringers supporting the stair treads. The rest of the footbridge showed a breakdown of the lead paint system.

Eptec’s main scope of work included:

  • Scaffolding
  • Encapsulation system (shrink wrap) to create a negative pressurised system
  • Environmental protection along with project specified areas that required protection
  • Dry abrasive blasting
  • Supply and apply a new coating system

Although the shutdown works occurred in an overnight window, Eptec managed to complete all works 4 hours ahead of time to the satisfied requirements of the Client.

Description of works:

  • High Pressure water washing
  • Dry abrasive blasting
  • Lead paint removal
  • Application of protective coatings by spray and roller
