A new train maintenance facility has been constructed as a state-of-the-art, purpose-built centre to service and maintain the New Intercity Fleet (NIF) of trains. These trains carry customers from Sydney to the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast. The maintenance facility is located at Kangy Angy, between Ourimbah and Tuggerah on the North Coast rail line of New South Wales
The facility includes a highly insulated and naturally ventilated fleet maintenance building, auxiliary workshops, material storage, administration, training rooms and associated amenities. Situated near a residential area within native bushland, the facility required sensitive design with particular attention given to the acoustic and thermal performance.
