06 Mar Auckland Transport LED Upgrade Project
MMS Group are nearing completion of our Stage 1 LED mast and lighting upgrade project with Auckland Transport.
Awarded in October 2018, with works commencing in November, the project will deliver energy savings across some of Auckland Transport busiest facilities by improving lighting standards through upgraded light fittings and masts at stations such as Papatoetoe, Puhinui, Morningside and Ellerslie.
The contract extends across 19 rail stations and incorporates the upgrade of 840 light fittings to LED, the manufacture and installation of 12 new light masts, as well as major civil works to prepare the areas for the new infrastructure.
As part of the civil works our team have installed concrete foundations for new light masts, cable ducts for earthing and bonding and carried out asphalt repairs. We designed and manufactured brackets and the pole structure for new masts and refurbished masts for reuse with rust repair, galvanising and repainting.
We are working to tight timelines incorporating Block of Lines and scheduled night works in order to complete the project efficiently and with minimum disruption to station users and by the deadline. MMS Group completed a similar lighting upgrade contract for Auckland Transport at Downtown Car Park in 2018 and we are confident we will again deliver to expectations on this latest project.
