Fibercon MP47 chosen for Gold Coast Light Rail Project

Fibercon MP47 chosen for Gold Coast Light Rail Project

The Gold Coast Light Rain project is one of the largest public transport projects in Australia and the largest transport infrastructure project ever undertaken on the Gold Coast.

Working with Aecom Engineers and CPB Builders, Fibercon's MP47 was used in a difficult intersection of Parkwood Drive and the Gold Coast University Hospital.

The rail line curved through the intersection and had super elevation. This made construction difficult - especially to place the proposed top reinforcing steel so it would be clear of the rail holding bolts.

The answer was 6kg/m3 of Fibercon MP47. This eliminated the need for a top layer of steel.

In addition to its environmental and cost benefits, the use of Emesh also decreased both construction and driver delays through speedier implementation: the intersection is one of the busiest on the Gold Coast.
