Austral Construction’s Rail Renewals Civil capabilities include the support of construction and maintenance for Rail and Infrastructure operators.

This is demonstrated through the use of highly skilled and rail-trained personnel, efficient and effective management and coordination, coupled with owned and dedicated plants with projects incorporating the following works.

Austral Construction’s specialised equipment includes a mobile concrete batch plant, excavators, loader, graders, tipper trucks, articulated dump trucks, water carts, Prime Mover trucks and various cranage, which, combined with Austral’s experience and technical capability enables self-performance of projects of significant size while reducing construction and plant risk.
