KiwiRail Contract in Canterbury Awarded to McConnell Dowell

New Zealand rail operator KiwiRail has awarded McConnell Dowell a contract to upgrade five main line level crossings in Canterbury.

Between now and June 2017 McConnell Dowell will be working with and alongside KiwiRail to remove existing rails and bearers, replace sub formation including drainage, restore rail lines and resurface the road.

Tight time restrictions intended to minimise interruptions to road traffic and rail services, mean that each upgrade will be completed within 48 hours.

“KiwiRail was seeking a provider who could commit to quality and timely delivery, under stringent safety protocols and procedures,” says Managing Director Roger McRae. “We are pleased to be working with them again on this important asset maintenance work.”
