A Lendlease, WSP, Acciona Coleman Rail and Metro Trains Melbourne alliance has won a $744 million contract to remove five crossings on the Frankston line. A $166m contract will see a level crossing on the Pakenham line removed by Fulton Hogans and Metro Trains Melbourne.The contracts are part of a programme to remove 75 congested and dangerous level crossings by 2025. Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan said the state is “well on track”, with 30 of the unsafe crossings already removed and contracts for a further 50 now awarded. “We said we’d remove 75 level crossings by 2025 and with contracts now awarded for 50".The government is investing $3bn to improve the Frankston line, with major works starting in Cheltenham and Mentone. The new Carrum Station is set to open in mid-February.Read more here
A forklift is a heavy-duty powered vehicle that is used to lift and move materials over short distances. Forklifts were invented in 1906, and have been used on sites around the world, where they’ve become a staple for most warehouse and factory operations. The machinery is named after their forklike prongs, which slide under a load to pick it up. Forklifts vary in load capacity and power supply, with some powered by LPG gas and petrol, diesel, and even electricity. Forklifts are a small vehicle with a rear-wheel drive and a raisable fork at the front, where cargo and materials can be placed for transport. The ability to vertically lift and lower the forks by the operator is achieved through a lever that controls pressure within the machine’s hydraulic cylinders. On the technical side of things, forklifts are powered by two intertwining mechanisms, hydraulic cylinders and roller chain pulleys, which utilise pressure to raise and lower cargo on the forks.As different industries have started to use them over the years, forklifts have been customised to carry different materials and traverse different ground materials. Now forklifts are used to move shipping containers and transport construction materials on infrastructure projects as well as their normal warehouse uses. Forklifts for hire are an extremely popular machine, both for wet and dry hire, as their ability to lift and move large quantities and weights of material in small spaces is special to them alone.Read more here
