Ballast Cleaning Works: Tamrookum to Acacia Ridge Qld
2018-10-01 @ 7:00 am - 2018-10-03 @ 6:00 pm
Shoulder Ballast Cleaning will be performed by ARTC’s Shoulder Ballast Cleaner track machine which picks up existing ballast from the track, cleans the ballast and returns the clean ballast to the track. The ballast is sprayed with water prior to cleaning to minimise dust pollution and some noise impacts may be experienced for residents living adjacent to the rail corridor.
The Shoulder Ballast Cleaner will be operating as-traffic-permits, so no impact to train services are expected.
Work will commence at Tamrookum and progress north to Acacia Ridge. Work is scheduled in three blocks as follows:
1st – 3rd of October
11th – 16th of October
24th – 28th of October
Hours of work will be between the standard working hours from 7am to 6pm.
