Shortlisted

The Scenic Railway Katoomba redevelopment is a world-class tourist attraction, steeped in history, and located in the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia.

The $30 million project featured a refurbishment programme involving an overhauled track and two new platforms, brand new state-of-the-art carriages, a new winch system and radio frequency identification technology which replaced tickets with wristbands.

Hot dip galvanized steelwork was integrated into all facets of the project. This included new loading and unloading platforms and stairs for top and bottom stations, service walkways, bottom station towers, module walkways, equipment platforms and a balcony extension, totalling a staggering 17,855 individual steel components.
