Engaged by Aurizon, Seymour Whyte constructed two new tracks, totalling approximately 5.5 km, to the existing up and down tracks on the Blackwater Central Line. The rail civil work scope included:

  • preliminary earthworks including clearing and grubbing
  • rail formation works
  • culvert replacements extensions, new barrels and associated drainage work under existing rail during track closures
  • electrification mast foundations
  • rail maintenance and crew change access roads
  • lightings for the crew change points
  • two maintenance level crossings inclusive of crew change (pedestrian) crossings
  • 900m track lowering works for the Up Track

Works involved construction of the Stanwell Intermediate Depot including a hardstand area and other ancillary civil works.

The Wiggins Island Rail Project – a staged development of new rail lines and upgrading of existing lines to service the new Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal at the Port of Gladstone – supports improved capacity for rail movements in and out of the terminal, as a vital link between the new terminal and mines in the southern Bowen and Surat Basins.
