Yandi Access Road Improvement

  • BHP Billiton Iron Ore had changed their existing railroad network, making the Yandi junction along the network a train driver change over point. As a result, this change in the operation of the rail network lead to a rise in light vehicle use around the area.
  • Austral was contracted to provide the Civil Engineering expertise needed to upgrade the existing infrastructure ahead of this change.
  • Upgrading of the existing access track and the construction of a new access track with a sealed intersection
  • Installation of road signs meeting all legal obligations and requests from client
  • The installation of new culverts and associated general drainage works throughout the site
  • Placement and compaction of 200mm basecourse material to 98% MMDD at multiple locations
