Kiwil Rail Stabilisation

Abseil Access was awarded the project to stabilise five ignimbrite bluffs adjacent to the NIMT rail corridor. A modified hi-rail excavator and a rotary telehandler allowed us to vacate the rail corridor rapidly, allowing trains to pass and avoid disruptions to the train schedule.

The tendons used in the project were a Glass-Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GRP) type of 32mm and 38mm diameters. This provided the client with minimal corrosion issues and a less hazardous material to handle for Abseil Access personnel.
