THE ARCS GROUP PROJECTS
Projects and Case Studies
In 2018 ARCS were engaged by Main Roads WA (MRWA) to assist with a problem that had arisen from the recently opened extension of the northern freeway. As part of this freeway extension project MRWA provided a path for joint use by pedestrians and cyclists. Site constraints resulted in a 400 metre section of this path being built adjacent to the noise wall, which resulted in numerous complaints in relation to light spill from residents on the other side of the noise wall.
The ARCS Group has identified a simple and elegant solution to reducing potential buckling in railways. Variations in ambient temperatures during hot and cold weather can cause rail buckles and breaks in the rai impacting the safe running of trains. It is both costly to the asset owner and operator and dangerous to rail passengers and users. Traditional methods and controls apply system wide speed restrictions based on BOM current temperature predictions often this does not accurately reflect the true conditions of the rail.
