The Rhomberg Rail Australia Team in Gracemere introduces itself.

From Gracemere near Rockhampton, Rhomberg Rail Australia's team of experts provides rail construction and maintenance services to the entire state of Queensland. The team supports a whole range of customers, including the network partner Aurizon.


Just recently, the railway construction professionals were on duty during the Blackwater closure. They completed work on the lateral displacement of the track at the Dingo level crossing, almost 150 kilometres west of Rockhampton, and renewed rails in the local marshalling yard. For the displacement, 100 metres of new track were laid, the asphalt at the crossing was dismantled and replaced and new overhead line masts were erected. In the station itself, 500 metres of track were replaced. The work was tough: the track in the station was built in the immediate vicinity of an inverted siphon, and the hilly and narrow surroundings of the construction site required a logistical masterpiece to get the sometimes very broad material loads on site.


Another exciting assignment was the total closure of the ‘Goonyella’ track in the Nebo and Dysart area of Queensland. The task here was to carry out two small but fine railway substructure renovations as the sole contractor. Rhomberg Rail Australia succeeded in renewing a total of 100 metres of track in just one shift, which saved the customer from lengthy complete closures.
