Butler project awards $5.4 million pits, pipes, optical fibre contract

As part of the Butler Extension Project, the Public Transport Authority has awarded a $5.4 million contract to install and commission a pit, pipe and fibre-optic cable system to Downer Australia.

Downer will trench and bore alongside the railway line, build about 160 pits all linked by conduit, and install the fibre-optic cable.  In some instances it will replace and rationalise multiple existing cables within a single pipe.

The cable carries data for the extensive network of CCTV, passenger information systems and the train signalling systems.

The end result will be a long-term, significant infrastructure asset with the flexibility to accommodate additional future cables.

The contract covers the railway from Perth as far as Joondalup (26.5km), work that is required to facilitate the extension to Butler.
