Galserv® Galvanising Services │ $30 million Cliffhanger!

Galserv® Hot Dip Galvanising Services has helped complete a $30 million refurbishment project to transform one of NSW’s most famous tourist attractions into the world’s steepest ride.

Katoomba’s Scenic World Railway in the Blue Mountains recently completed a major 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 will replace tickets with wristbands.

Galserv® was awarded the hot dip galvanising for the heavy structural steel by long-standing partner-client Combell Steelfab and helped deliver the extraordinary scheme alongside Combell, Grindley Construction and Architects PMLD.

Galserv® treated all the heavy structural material for the refurbishment including the support structures for the new upper and lower platforms and all stairways and maintenance access walkways, some of which were installed at an incredible incline of 52 degrees on the track leading into the Jamison Valley.
