Mount Victoria Switch Earthing

Project Details

Client : John Holland Group (on behalf of Sydney Trains)
Type : Overhead Structure Switch Earthing
Date : September 2022
Scope of project:

Earthing Solutions supplied and installed the switch earthing for the overhead structure on the main western rail line at Mount Victoria. The project involved:

  • Supplying and installing 6 x 25m x 15mm solid copper electrodes
  • Bolting connections to structures
  • Installing electrode pits and clamps
  • Testing


The project was carried out under possession as there was limited access to the rail corridor. The work was performed according to a tight schedule so the lines could be ready for rail occupation.

Access was key, and the project required tight coordination between all involved.


The switch earthing was installed on time and without incident.

... I would like to extend JHG's appreciation for completing the earthing scope of work proficiently and with zero issues and incidents, well done.
