Details
  • It is proposed to develop a railway of approximately 320km to transport iron ore from the Roy Hill 1 mine to facilities at Port Hedland and the proposed Boodarie multiuser stockyard area which is to be vested in the PHPA (Port Hedland Port Authority).
  • The railway proposal includes: a marshalling yard (with associated workshops and maintenance facilities storage and laydown areas, rail welding yard), passing loops and sidings, construction water bores and 'turkeys nest' dams, borrow and ballast areas for construction material, communications cable, towers and signalling system, construciton works accommodation camps and amenities for workers, access roads and construction power supplies.
  • Five train sets will be required to transport 55 Mtpa, with each train consisting of two diesel electric locomotives and 232 iron ore wagons.
  • When spares are included, this will entail a fleet of 17 locomotives and 1790 wagons.
  • Fuel supply trains will require one additional AC locomotive and 12 tanker cars.
  • An unsealed, at-grade access road will run adjacent to and generally parallel to the proposed railway for its entire length, for the purposes of railway access and maintenance.
  • The road pavement width will be approximately 9m wide.
  • Seven sidings are expected to be required along the entire length of the railway to allow trains travelling in opposite directions to pass.
  • Additional sidings called "back-tracks" will be provided on the back to eh passing sidings along the alignment as required to allow removal of 'bad-order' wagons (mechanical fault).
  • Road crossings will be at grade or grade separated in accordance with the requirements of Main Roads of Western Australia.
  • Level crossings on access roads will be protected with signs that comply with this standard.
  • To preserve current land uses in a way that is compatible with the proposed railway, fencing and/or controls will need to be installed at occupational rail crossings, vehicle the paths, livestock grids and in other areas where access requires controlling or restricting.
  • Watercourses crossings will consist of culverts or bridges.
  • Culverts will be used in preference to bridges.
  • For bridges, to provide a simple and efficient method of construction, the design of the rail bridges will be standardised for fast construction requiring a minimum quantity of in situ concrete.
  • The span length proposed is 25m.
  • The construction methodology will be to at 25m intervals drive circular steel pier columns as a "trestle" consisting of three members with the two outer members raking and the central pier column vertical.
  • A heavy hardstand granular pavement is required for installation of piled substructure over the full length of each bridge primarily to provide safe, stable access for heavy plant and equipment.
  • The width of the hardstand on both the upstream and downstream sides of the piers will be approximately 20m, ie a total fo 40m wide.
  • Hardstand will remain in service until superstructure units are placed by heavy cranage.
  • Prefabricated steel headstocks will be lifted into place by a crane and site welded to the pier columns.
  • Decks will consist of prefabricated composite girders or steel through girder construction.
  • The marshalling yard will be adjacent to the main line and will incorporate 10 rail tracks.
  • The site is expected to accommodate a rolling-stock workshop and washdown bay, locomotive provisioning hall, rail infrastructure yard, diesel fuel storage, electrical substation, communications tower, administration building, car parks, potable and wastewater treatment units and fire-water storage and access roads.
  • The rolling stock workshop will be a single storey building with a heavy duty concrete slab, overhead travelling cranes, high pressure water wash-down facilities and various pieces of maintenance equipment including a wheel lathe to service and maintain locomotives an
