To increase rail exports to beyond 6Mtpa as well as to comply with the expanded rail service requirement (200 wagon trains) proposed by Transnet Freight Rail.


Conduct a FEL3 level study to design the remodelling of the existing rail yard to meet the longer train length and improve rail operations to allow for the expanded export volumes.

  • Compete detailed operational plan including migration from current to future
  • Design yard modifications to complement the operational plan
    • Undertake the detailed engineering (Civil & Perway , OHTE & Lighting, Train Control)
    • Prepare the technical specifications for the work
    • Prepare and quantify the work
    • Prepare stage working drawings detailing the proposed construction sequencing
  • Prepare documentation to allow contractor engagement to obtain pricing to suitable accuracy levels
  • Closeout final design and report in conjunction with Client and allied work streams
  • Client project team involving multiple discipline areas
  • Mine personnel – Rail Operations, Engineering, Materials Handling
  • Allied work streams for associated materials handling (Silo & Conveyor design)
  • Transnet Freight Rail (Engineering & Operations)
