On behalf of Sydney Rail, Brefni Civil Engineering required a railway noise barrier to protect residents from the Artarmon station’s operational noise and the shunting yard’s expansion.

The design brief required a barrier that met the acoustic and rail performance requirements whilst creating an aesthetically pleasing finish. Furthermore, the project posed specific access issues, with the passage being only a few metres wide. Therefore, the components of the railway noise barrier needed to be incredibly lightweight to accommodate the manual installation.

ModularWalls’ revolutionary EnduroMax solution effortlessly met the brief. The high-performance, high-impact resistant panel easily met the strict acoustic and rail performance requirements. While at the same time overcoming the restricted site access and safety regulations.

With its lightweight components and modular design, each panel was carried in by hand to overcome the restricted site access. Our Aluminium post system was chosen for ease of installation, including internal reinforcements and custom engineering to achieve 3m heights.

However, whilst light in weight, the EnduroMax panels deliver high acoustic performance; with a Weighted Sound Reduction Index of 33 dB, they effectively protect residents from railway noise. Running over 120m long, the design included access gates and post-mounted static line systems for safe work practices of the rail line maintenance crews. Finally, the barrier was finished with decorative laminated strips to achieve a sleek, sophisticated aesthetic.
