Ideal Gate Automation – Sydney International Dragway

This project by Ideal Gate Automation was designed for maximum opening with two unavoidable restraints on both sides – the far side dam bank and the boundary with Sydney Motorsport park/access easement.

Bi sliding entry gate set:

  • 1x 13m cantilever gate suspended over a dam, on 3.5 degrees slope, unstable footing requiring piers
  • 1x 13m cantilever gate on the same 3.5-degree slope, driving into the air cast over and next to a critical gas main


The entry set was one of a small part of the site upgrade.

Ideal Gate Automation completed another 12m level cantilever, just short of 1km of fencing and another 16 gates.

This project was a Winner in the Australian FENCING Awards for 2021.
