Newport Bayside Rail Project

August - November 2015
Signalling Contractor

McLeod Rail supplied project managers, supervisors, track certifiers, hi-rail excavators and attachments, weld crews, labourers and non-destructive testing to assist RCR Infrastructure in their signalling enhancements to remove shunting operations, improve safety and cater for additional train movements at MTM’s Newport Rail Yard. The works included installation of IRJs, Hollow Sleepers, Derailer Timbers, Points Machine Timbers, Concrete Sleepers, removal of Turnouts and Catch Points and asphalting work.

As a result of this project, the Newport Workshops will become the designated Train Maintenance Facility for the cross city group, providing fleet maintenance for Siemens and X'Trapolis trains.
