Martinus beginning major works on Carmichael Rail Network

Martinus

Martinus is about to begin piling works for the first bridge on the Carmichael Rail Network.

Already, construction of the first of many waterway crossings has begun while bulk earthworks continue.

Chief operating officer Ryan Baden said the project involved a number of civil construction processes.

“We are delivering the port-side civil works, which is around 86 kilometres of the earthworks formation with 10 multi-span superstructures – one that spans 50 metres, 87 culvert structures and three-million cubic meters of cut to fill.”

The $340 million works program, announced in two separate contracts, covers rail laying to connect the Adani mine to the Central Queensland Coal Network, and the associated civil construction works.

To prepare the rail for installation, on-site flash-butt welding is taking place.

Martinus has 300 staff on site working on the project and is looking to involve locals wherever possible.
