As discussed in the previous post, one of the major projects that ADE is currently engaged in is the Epping to Thornleigh Third Track (ETTT) work. The ETTT is one of the four major components of the North Sydney Freight Corridor (NSFC) Program aimed at improving rail freight improvements to the Main Northern Line between Strathfield and Broadmeadow. Another key project of the NSFC is the North Strathfield Rail Underpass (NSRU) – see maps 1 & 2. The NSRU project entails the construction of a rail underpass at North Strathfield, platform upgrades and a new aerial concourse at Concord West Station. Work on the NSRU is another of the chief projects which ADE has been contracted to work on. ADE has been working here since November 2012. As part of this project, our employees have been involved with conducting asbestos material inspection and clearance reports, waste classification and analysis and risk assessments – see photo 1.

This past week, other employees have worked on projects for NovoRail, Endeavour Energy, NSW Public Works, Laing O’Rourke and John Holland. Consequently, work in the field has been carried out spanning areas from Broken Hill to Kiama to Vaucluse to Port Botany.

In all work that it conducts, ADE always pays uttermost caution to ensure that appropriate methodology is applied by complying with a Safety, Health & Environment and Safe Work Method Statement prior to undertaking works. These safety standards have been recognised by QMS Certification Systems who have awarded ADE the following recognitions: ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) and AS/NZS 4801 (OH & S Management System). Due to the potentially hazardous nature of the work which ADE conducts, these safety standards are strictly adhered to at all times.
