The program involved replacing 19 kilometres of rail and re-aligning 5 kilometres of dual guage track between Kwinana and Avon to enable the continued safe operation of one of the busiest sections of our network.
This section of the State’s freight rail network currently transports in excess of 19 million tonnes each year, and acts as a lifeline to Western Australia, providing a vital link to the eastern states and export ports for passengers, bulk commodities and containerised freight.
These works are part of Arc Infrastructure’s ongoing asset renewal program and are critical to providing a safe, efficient and reliable freight network that continues to meet industry needs.
The project was completed this month and builds on approximately $22.7 million worth of track upgrades on this line in the last two years.
