The supply of a cost effective concrete sleeper solution for the ARTC mainline upgrade

This paper describes the technical and logistic challenges of manufacturing and supplying 1.25 million concrete monoblock sleepers to the ARTC for this unique project. Following an extensive tendering and evaluation process, ARTC awarded the contract to supply the 1.25 million sleepers, complete with Pandrol Fastclip rail fastenings to Austrak Pty Ltd. The contact is being executed by splitting supply between Austrak’s existing Geelong factory (250,000 sleepers) and a newly constructed Austrak factory located at Wagga Wagga in NSW (1 million sleepers).
