Mullewa to Tilley Rail Upgrade
MULLEWA TO TILLEY RAIL UPGRADE
Principal: Brookfield Rail
Location: Mullewa, WA Mid West Region
Commencing in August 2011 this $100 million project is to upgrade the existing 92 kilometres of narrow gauge rail (designed for the transport of wheat in rail carriages) to 60kg/m narrow gauge rail suitable for iron ore haulage. Two thirds of the rail length will require realignment, necessitating a new earthworks embankment adjacent to the existing rail. In addition there will be the construction of access roads.
Survey Dynamics have been contracted to complete all surveying on this project including set out, drainage, sidings, overpasses, levies and machine control.
