Specialist Rail Maintenance Capability

Pilbara Rail Maintenance help you to identify the most appropriate track management strategy.

Our ‘out on rail’ and ‘desktop’ rail management approaches leverage the latest technologies and equipment to ensure the most effective repair and construction results.

Track Renewal
Our turnkey track renewal service offers a hassle-free rail maintenance solution. We handle every aspect of the project - from bottom ballast installation to sleeper laying, rail installation, rail fastening, top ballast installation and rail welding - giving you greater control and certainty over project deliverables. We adopt smart and safe solutions that optimise efficiency and minimise risks, like our GPS sleeper laying capability and automated clip-up systems which reduce labour requirements and enhance precision.
Re-Sleepering & Rail Replacement
We can perform every aspect of re-sleepering, providing all necessary resources to ensure the successful completion of projects of any size. Collaborating closely with our clients, we tailor a cost-effective production rate that aligns with network requirements. Our expertise also extends to re-rail and turnout component change out, with our highly skilled teams carrying out these tasks daily. Leveraging state-of-the-art machinery and adhering to stringent safety protocols, we execute all rail replacement works with a lean labour approach.
We provide undercutting services using our large fleet of specialist machinery including new Liebherr Hi-Rails, Loaders, Hydrema Hi-Rail Tippers and high quality under cutting bars. Whether it’s for small spot undercutting or production plain line and turnout ballast renewal, we have a solution and the capability to deliver a project of any size.
