Korvest Galvanisers provided hot dip galvanising services for the structural steel work used in the upgrade of several rail stations in South Australia.

Multiple suburban rail stations in South Australia are in the process of being upgraded. New stations such as Elizabeth and Seaton, which have just been opened to the public have modern designs, are spacious and feature a striking design with their use of large steel beams in the construction. 

Hot dip galvanising was chosen as the corrosion protection method of choice for the many tonnes of steel used in their construction. Korvest Galvanisers galvanised the structural steel work used in the construction of these stations within a tight turnaround, and finished all galvanising to the AS/NSZ4680:2006 standard. 

Korvest Galvanisers is also involved in the rail electrification project in South Australia. Having so far galvanised over 1,000 tonnes of steel members for the $400m infrastructure project, galvanising was chosen to protect the structural steel to provide an economical, long term, and maintenance-free solution that would last well into the future. 

These rail upgrades in SA show how galvanising offers solutions not just for industrial type construction, but civil projects as well.
