In 2008 UEA Civil and Mining were engaged to provide terrain leveling services on a rail duplication project between Singleton and Muswellbrook to accommodate the increased quantities of coal from the Hunter Valley.
The new terrain leveling technology was sought after for its capability to remove the 30,000 cubic meters of rock, without the need to drill and blast which would threaten the valuable infrastructure, such as signalling and communications, and delay freight movements due to the need to close the rail line.
The rock that was milled using the Vermeer T1255 Terrain Leveller was nominally 120mm in size, and after screening, proved perfect material to be used in the capping for the civil works to lay the duplicated rail line.
Visit the UEA video gallery to see the Vermeer T1255 in action.
