Project Description

Post-tensioning slabs for the Metronet

Perth’s transportation landscape is on the cusp of a remarkable transformation, poised for growth and efficiency. Par for this evolution is the Public Transport Operations Control Centre (PTOCC), an iconic five-story building at 40 West Parade, East Perth, Western Australia.

This state-of-the-art facility is set to become the nerve centre for managing and coordinating the extensive expansion of Perth’s public transportation network, projected to span over 72 kilometres in the coming years.

Interspan were engaged by Concrete structures specialists FineForm to supply and install almost 8,000 square meters of post-tensioned slabs, which HERA Engineering designed.

The works are being undertaken between August 2022 and April 2023.

As Perth’s rail network undergoes a decade-long transition towards a network-wide digital signalling upgrade, the PTOCC is a beacon of progress. Its capabilities will enable more trains to run more frequently, turning the vision of METRONET’s High Capacity Signalling Project into a reality.

The PTOCC is more than just a building; it symbolises Perth’s commitment to a sustainable and efficient transportation future.

As it takes shape on the city skyline, it signifies the growth and progress Western Australia’s capital is poised to embrace.

In the years to come, the PTOCC will continue to be a testament to the city’s commitment to delivering an exceptional public transportation experience for its residents and visitors.
