After a record number of nominations for the 2018 Frank Franklyn Young Rail Specialist Award we are thrilled to announce the winner is Andrew Kelly of CPB Contractors for his contribution to the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project. Andrew’s contribution involved managing the planning, design and construction of temporary works using an elevated rail design. The project set a new industry benchmark for employing novel and innovative solutions within a confined work environment and using methodology which has never been used before in Australia. Andrew’s work in gaining approval for the straddle carried in a live operating environment was considered a feat by the RTAA review panel. Andrew has proven that it is possible to create new infrastructure with minimal impact and disruption to existing rail operations and public safety. Well done Andrew.

Congratulations also go to Shane Peirce of Lendlease as runner up for his commendable contribution to rail projects.
