Ongoing Turnout Maintenance

July 2016
Freight Operator

McLeod Rail’s point’s maintenance team services more than 300 turnouts across 10 sites in Victoria every month. Our maintenance team were asked to find a solution to a hazard involving one of our intermodal freight client’s sites. Our client needed a lasting solution that would prevent personnel falling into the points and allow forklift access. The team proposed a solution, manufactured a new steel cover, and installed it. This permanent solution allows the points to operate while protecting vehicles and people.
