The paper describes the Feasibility Study undertaken and the subsequent Survey, Investigation, and Design of a 143-mile railway being constructed as part of the Greenvale Nickel Project in Northern Australia. The method of performing the various activities associated with the Study and Design are outlined, as well as the major constraints influencing these operations. Design parameters established for the various parts are scheduled together with comparative estimates of cost and quantities for the Feasibility Study and Design. The restricted time programme for completing each activity is highlighted, together with the need for close co-operation and interaction between the various disciplines to ensure the project was completed on schedule.
