Project Scope

The entire existing passenger rail network was upgraded as part of the South Australian Government’s $2b plan to revitalise the public transport network. The design & construct scope included replacement of timber and steel sleepers with concrete gauge convertible sleepers, replacement of ballast, formation repairs and renewals, upgrade and construction of trackside drainage systems, turnout upgrades and the replacement and/or refurbishment of existing rail. An innovative new product was developed by the team during the works to attach to the hi-rail excavator and improve overall efficiency of the project.
