The Goods Line

The Goods Line project is a new pedestrian and cycle network that makes up the urban renewal project within Sydney over the existing redundant rail infrastructure. Barnwell Cambridge was engaged to complete the design and installation of the Electrical and associated services. There was nothing about this opportunity that was even close to being easy. Everything from mounting external grade down lights on a heritage listed rail bridge that could not be altered or disturbed in any way. Through to under seat lighting that had to be “custom made” to fit within predefined grooves in the base of pre-cast concrete seats. These requirements called for the team at Barnwell Cambridge to get creative.

Every part of this installation required custom metal work to be manufactured, including the light posts that were made to mount the architectural feature lighting. This was a credit to the whole team at Barnwell Cambridge, with site, office and management staff working together to make this project the success that it is today together with our sister company, Lasonda Industries, for the custom metal fabrication they provided.

This once derelict site has now been transformed into a place where families play, students meet, markets are held, and movie screenings take place. The popularity of the space has surprised even the client and is now being compared to other such projects around the world including “The High Line” in New York city.
