Eastern Creek, Australia

Record breaking with 3 Precast Concrete Plants in the same location for MCT Italy

The production lines are working hard at Eastern Creek precast facility, churning out more than 500 segments every day. More than 99,000 of the 150,000 tunnelling segments have been made there so far, ready to line the 24-kilometre Sydney Metro West tunnels.

The facility is made up of three production lines with MCT Italy Batch Plant, one for each of the three Sydney Metro West tunnelling packages. These segments are then transported to tunnelling sites, before being loaded onto the tunnel boring machines and forming the rings that make up the tunnel walls.
