Sydney Trains runs the network of hybrid suburban-commuter rail systems with a central underground core that covers over 815km of track and 178 stations over nine lines.


Built in 1957, Cockle Creek Bridge has heritage significance as a local landmark. It is an attractive example of a mid 20th century overhead braced truss double span rail bridge and was the last truss bridge built for the NSW railway network.

The scope of works includes:

  • Removal and replacement of the lead paint system.
  • Strengthening work to the top chord and stringer girders.
  • Replacing corroded rivets with high strength structural bolts.
  • Improvements to the earthing and bonding arrangements.
  • Installing new walkways.


  • An engineered train temporary enclosure (tunnel) will be fabricated and installed to enable works to be carried out whilst the bridge is fully operational.
  • Train enclosure fabricated off site and installed in modular sections during a weekend track possession.
  • Scaffolding system installed to the underside, sides and top, fully encapsulated with shrink wrap system.
  • Stringent environmental controls to be implemented as works are over water and involve hazardous coating removal.


  • Abrasive Blasting & Painting
  • Asbestos & Lead Paint Removal
  • Preservation of Heritage Structures
